How about a story on how Des Hudson is kind to animals? Reply Link Paul Menham 24 December 2013 at 16:07 I’d expect The Lawyer to get the law right. This isn’t a change to contracts. This is an employer exercising it’s right to stipulate when it’s employees take annual leave. The Law Society is entitled to do this under the Working Time Regulations. For three days leave they need to give six days notice, not a years notice. Seemingly no discrimination claim has been issued, as it wouldn’t succeed. Not sure what is discriminatory, but in any event he cost saving and limited number of staff in would comfortably amount to justification. Merry Christmas.
