Oakleaf Partnership in Birmingham hosted a HR Law Update seminar in collaboration with Eversheds Sutherland. It was an information-packed morning, we talked about significant new case law across a range of topics including Disability Discrimination, Covert Recordings and Restrictive Covenants. We also discussed Ethnicity Pay Reporting and whilst May’s government was keen to introduce legislation, the current political uncertainties are likely to cause a delay. Large employers will, however, continue to face pressures to report voluntarily - “I believe it is essential that all large employers must publish their workforce ethnicity data annually” (Race in the workplace, The McGregor-Smith Review, Feb 2017)
We then went on to talk about the ongoing impact of #Metoo in the workplace:
