HR factsheet July 2017: survive summer without an employment tribunal

Councils need to be aware that whilst asking staff to be flexible and cover for absent colleagues, they need to ensure that requests to work extra hours don't result in breaches of the Working Time Regulations 1998, which could result in claims at the Employment Tribunal for breach of statutory rights.

HR factsheet May 2017 - Employee Conduct Problems outside Work

For many Councils the conduct of staff outside of work is a grey area, and one which they are unsure about in terms of the
need for management to be involved. Most Councils take the view that once an Employee is off the premises, they are no longer accountable to the management. However, this premise has long been challenged and recently came into the spotlight in the case of NHS Doctor, David Arundel of the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby, who assaulted a colleague during an out of hour's social event.
