We round up what caught Tribunal Watch's eye on Twitter in the week beginning 18 June 2012, during which there has been a raft of employment law developments covering areas such as redundancy consultation, unfair dismissal, equal pay and pensions auto-enrolment. These include:
- a consultation on changes to collective redundancy rules;
- details of proposed provision for "protected conversations" in the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill;
- a plan to require employment tribunals to order an employer to conduct an equal pay audit; and
- new pensions auto-enrolment letter templates for employers and enforcement guidance from the Pensions Regulator.
There has also been a new European Court of Justice (ECJ) judgment on sickness during annual leave. The ECJ confirmed that a worker who is sick during a period of annual leave cannot be precluded from taking the holiday at a time other than that originally scheduled, irrespective of when the incapacity for work first arose.
