• Stonewall's new religion and sexual orientation guide for employers on how to manage tensions between religious and gay workers (including useful case studies discussing how the needs of both groups can be accommodated).
  • 2008/9 annual reports from Acas and the Tribunal Service. The latter notes that the recent judicial mediation pilot was considered successful and in January 2009 it was rolled out nationwide for a "specific subset of cases" (assumed to be discrimination claims, often where employment is ongoing).
  • Updated government guidance on TUPE noting that the employee liability information to be provided to a transferee should include disciplinary action and grievances to which the new 2009 Acas Code applies (rather than the statutory procedures repealed in April 2009).
