Welcome to the first Employment News of 2021. We hope that you are continuing to keep safe during the third national lockdown of the last 12 months. It can be difficult to stay optimistic during these times but it is promising to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel with the continued roll-out of the Covid vaccines. Naomi Greenwood provides pause for thought for employers who might be considering introducing a vaccination policy in her article “No Jab, No Job”. We also look at matters outside the spectrum of the pandemic with an update from Michelle Tudor about the current status of immigration in the UK since leaving the EU at the end of January. As usual, we have also put together a summary of some of the latest employment cases from recent months including a case where a Claimant argued to the Court of Appeal that he should be allowed to present his employment claim despite being out of time to lodge his claim.
We hope you are continuing to keep safe during these times and invite you to get in touch with any employment related queries that you may have.
