  • Much as I love to see Jonathan administer his regular kicking to the LawSoc's executive, don't forget that Christmas is the time for peace and goodwill amongst all men. How about a story on how Des Hudson is kind to animals?

  • 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.
