Littleton's Manchester Employment Seminar
Privilege, contractual notice, whistleblowing and tainted information: the latest updates and practical know-how

Join us as we discuss four topical issues of interest and practical relevance to any employment lawyer. The discussions feature four of Littleton Chambers’ high profile employment barristers, and promises to be entertaining as well as practical and erudite.

Martin Fodder - Whistleblowing update
  • What is a disclosure of information? Kilraine - the latest from the Court of Appeal
  • Applying the public interest test: EAT and ET cases since Chestertons

Carol Davis - Dealing with Iago: How to spot and deal with tainted information
Carol will look at recent case law in order to consider the Court’s approach to dealing with evidence provided by employees in cases of whistleblowing and/or discrimination. In particular, she will provide practical guidance as to how to identify and deal with tainted information in such cases during the stages of an internal investigation and when defending such cases before the Employment Tribunal.

Antony Sendall - Take Notice!
  • When does contractual notice take effect? Recent Supreme Court case of Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Trust v Haywood (importance of having an express clause dealing with the effect of notice)
  • When is a notice not a notice? Levy v East Kent Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
  • When does giving notice amount to affirming the contract and not a constructive dismissal? Brown & Ors v Neon Management Services 

Craig Rajgopaul - Advising on discrimination and dismissal cases without losing (or abusing) privilege
  • In X v Y [2018] UKEAT/0261/17 the EAT held that advice from a solicitor about how to handle a redundancy situation was iniquitous (and therefore not privileged) because following the advice would cloak a discriminatory dismissal. 
  • Craig will consider how solicitors should deal with such situations without risking losing privilege or breaching their own professional obligations.
