New case on illegality
David Reade QC and Grahame Anderson have successfully resisted the employer’s appeal to the EAT in Okedina v Chikale. The case considers the impact of alleged illegality on claims for national wage and holiday pay brought by a domestic worker. The EAT considered the public policy considerations in the Supreme Court decisions in Hounga and Patel and the impact of the Immigration Asylum and Nationality Act 2006, and the Immigration rules, on an employment contract. David and Grahame acted pro bono and were instructed by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP.
