The Prime Minister’s speech at Lancaster House on 17 January setting out Britain’s plans for Brexit contained 12 objectives for a new constructive partnership between Britain and the EU, four of which are employment-related. In her speech, the PM confirmed that in leaving the UK is seeking a new and equal partnership, but ‘out means out’ and the UK will not seek to hold on to bits of membership as it leaves.

Four of the 12 objectives in the exit plan are employment-related:

  • The EAT hold that the dismissal of an employee for grabbing a colleague was unfair because the employer failed to have regard to all the surrounding circumstances and the employee’s exemplary 42-year record.
  • The PM’s speech at Lancaster House on 17 January setting out Britain’s plans for Brexit contained 12 objectives for a new partnership between Britain and the EU, which included four employment-related goals.
  • The Modern Families Index 2017 has revealed the risk of a ‘fatherhood penalty’ where men move into lower paid and lower quality work because they have become fathers.
  • BEIS have revealed ten bizarre excuses used by bosses found to have underpaid workers the National Minimum Wage, including it’s not deserved because the worker only makes the tea and sweeps the floors.
