The scope of British employment law rights for overseas workers remains a vexed issue. A year on from the House of Lords’ decision in the conjoined appeals of Lawson v Serco; Botham v Ministry of Defence and Crofts and others v Veta Limited ]2006] IRLR 289, and despite some clarification from the appeal courts, the advice for employers remains to approach the issue with caution. In the February 2006 edition of Employment Highlights we considered the effect the Lawson v Serco group of cases had on the geographical extent of s94(1) Employment Rights Act 1996 (“ERA”), which gives employees the right not to be unfairly dismissed. In this edition we will look at recent cases on these issues; whether they have clarified the position; and what steps employers should be taking.
