Conversations, Sheep and Wills
In a wide ranging issue of Business and Life we discuss changes to employment law that allow employers to hold “Protected Conversations” with their employees and the newly introduced fee system for bringing a case before the Employment Tribunal.
In personal law, we look at what happens if you make a gift an item in your will and you no longer have that item when you die. Our Agricultural, Rural & Sporting Property team have been out and about during the summer and we also report on a promotion in the team.
Race to the Finish
2012 was an amazing year of events in the UK - the Queen’s Jubilee being followed by the Olympic and the Paralympic Games.
In this issue of Business and Life, we look forward to the next major UK wide event, the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, and examine some of the issues major events can throw up.
Andrew Wilson fires the starting gun on public sector procurement, Graham Bell asks what sponsors should be seeking for their money and Martin Stephen writes on managing employees over major event periods.
Elsewhere Lesley Elrick comments on a court case which offers salutary lessons for family businesses and we announce new appointments and promotions.
