Welcome to the January 2021 edition of Employment and Immigration Law Update from out East and East Anglia legal partners, Birketts.
In their first issue of 2021, they take a look at what employers can expect in the months ahead, with a summary of the key legislative changes we know about so far.
They review a decision of the Court of Appeal on the question of extending time limits for a claim, and a decision from the Employment Appeal Tribunal on identifying the correct employer when bringing a claim in the employment tribunal.
In the ‘Quick fire’ news items they look at the duty for large employers to report on their gender pay gap (this year’s deadline is fast approaching) and revised guidance from HMRC on furloughing staff with childcare responsibilities. They also report the latest news from the employment tribunals on remote hearings during the current period of lockdown.
And finally, the Immigration Team takes a look at right to work checks, changes to COVID-19 concessions, travel bans and the new BN(O) visa.employment-and-immigration-law-update---january-2021
