In Chief Constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland and another v Agnew, the Supreme Court upheld the Court of Appeal's decision that police officers and civilian police support staff in Northern Ireland can recover holiday underpayments that stretch back as far as 1998.
We look at three employment tribunal cases in which employers criticised or disciplined employees for their social media activities.
In Allette v Scarsdale Grange Nursing Home Ltd, an employment tribunal held that a care-home worker was fairly dismissed when she refused to be vaccinated against coronavirus.
In Hope v British Medical Association, the Employment Appeal Tribunal held that the tribunal was entitled to find that the employer had acted reasonably in dismissing the employee for bringing vexatious grievances and refusing to either pursue or withdraw those grievances.
In Cox v Lancashire County Council, an employment tribunal held that allowing an autistic employee's wife to accompany him at a disciplinary hearing was a reasonable adjustment under disability discrimination legislation.
We examine four employment tribunal decisions concerning the dismissal of employees for social media activities.
In Sinelnikova v ActivTrades plc, an employment tribunal upheld a compliance officer's claims of unfair dismissal, whistleblowing and victimisation after finding that she had been subjected to "concerted and malicious" action by her employer.
In Kirk v Citibank NA and others, an employment tribunal held that a senior banker who was dismissed following a redundancy process was subjected to direct age discrimination and unfairly dismissed.
In Commissioner of the City of London Police v Geldart, the Employment Appeal Tribunal held that a failure to pay a London allowance to a police officer on maternity leave constituted direct sex discrimination and no comparator was required.
In Badara v Pulse Healthcare Ltd, the Employment Appeal Tribunal held that the employer should not have relied solely on negative Home Office checks when it dismissed the employee for failing to provide right to work documentation.
