Employment Law Case of the Week
USDAW & Wilson v Woolworths & Ors (Case C-182/13)
The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has recently published its judgment in a case surrounding the collapse of Woolworths, and has stated that UK law on collective redundancy consultation does not comply with the European Collective Redundancies Directive. As a result, if an employer is seeking to make 20 or more redundancies over a period of 90 days, it will have to initiate a consultation with employee representatives.

Employment Tribunal Awards
Until 1999 the statutory maximum limits on monetary awards, which employment tribunals could make, were fixed on a somewhat haphazard and irregular basis. This has now been changed. The Secretary of State must now make annual orders to index-link most maximum limits by reference to changes in RPI for September, up or down, in each year.
The amount of compensation awarded following an employment tribunal will depend on the nature and outcome of the case.
The proposals in the Government's 2006 White Paper on Personal Accounts, the aim of which is to introduce "soft compulsion" into workplace pension provision, are now coming to fruition. On 27 October 2010 the Pensions Minister, Steve Webb, confirmed that the Government would proceed with implementing the reforms set out in the Pensions Act 2008 and accompanying regulations, subject to the relatively minor changes recommended by an independent review of the proposed regime.
