June has seen some interesting Covid-19 related cases hitting the tribunal system. We're looking into an automatic unfair dismissal case that serves as a great reminder of the importance of having safety measures in place.
But, if you only get chance to read one case this month, make it the judgment in Finn v British Bung Manufacturing (Discrimination - Harassment). It's full of all the things we know should not be happening in a healthy and respectful workplace, and most importantly demonstrates the risk to employers that don't prioritise dignified and respectful behaviour across their whole organisation.
That's it for case law this month, but we also have updates for you on Long Covid and disability, Menstrual leave, exclusivity clauses, fit notes, the current IR climate, as well as an introduction to some new members of the Vista team!
Enjoy the update, and the sunshine, and see you next month!
