Employment Disputes

Early indications suggest we will see an increase in employment disputes as a consequence of the emergency measures employers have deemed necessary during the Coronavirus outbreak.

The increase in the number of redundancies will inevitably lead to some accusations of unfair or discriminatory selection.

Similarly, businesses may face questions relating to furlough selection and whether the process was carried out in a non-discriminatory manner. Potentially, some employees may assert their right to resign was breached which could lead to a claim for constructive unfair dismissal.

Where employers have varied staff contractual terms and conditions, disputes may arise if employees allege a failure to consult and obtain agreement.

It is widely expected that in order to resolve employment disputes, settlement agreements will significantly increase in the coming months. If this route is under consideration, it is important to remember that an employee must receive legal advice prior to signing a settlement agreement and that the cost of this is usually borne by the employer.
