Employment News is a monthly Podcast from the Employment team at Shepherd and Wedderburn. This month, we report on the outcome of the first corporate manslaughter trial since corporate manslaughter (or corporate homicide as it is known in Scotland) became a criminal offence in April 2008. We also report a decison of the EAT that TUPE will always apply to the transfer of employees from a company in administration and a Court of Appeal judgment concerning constructive dismissal and the importance of the motive behind the employer's actions.
A transcript is also available.
