Employment News is a monthly Podcast from the Employment team at Shepherd and Wedderburn. This month, we report on the current state of the ongoing debate on the validity of compromise agreements under the Equality Act 2010. We also cover a decision that an employer was not responsible for race discrimination or racial harassment of an employee by one of its clients, a finding that actions taken by a pub chain in an attempt to reposition a "gay bar" led to liability for sexual orientation discrimination and confirmation that a foster carer is not a worker for the purposes of employment legislation.
A transcript is also available.
