UK Employment Law - The View from Mayer Brown

In our regular round up, we report on three recent important cases. The first deals with enforcement of restrictive covenants, where the court was considering the enforceability of the covenants after a full trial, rather than at the usual interim stage. The second case considers whether a working practice which had never have been explicitly imposed could be a “provision, criterion or practice” for the purposes of an indirect discrimination claim. Finally we look at whether courts can award damages for pain and suffering for breach of the Working Time Regulations.
