Who Is An Employee??

That might sound a simple enough question but it is one that has kept the courts busy on many occasions, most recently the supreme court in the Uber cases. Just to confuse matters the outcome of that case was that the drivers are “workers” which is another status of employment. Why does it matter?? The […]

Hot Tub Hurt

Relaxing in a hot tub on a warm summers evening….there are worse things in life. Unfortunately for Mrs C her plan to sit back and relax in some warming water became something rather more painful.

Going to court is expensive, and with the courts overwhelmed and waiting lists for cases at an all time high, that cost keeps getting higher. It is an unfortunate reality that the party with the biggest resources can often simply […]

The Civil Justice Council has reported that mandatory ADR is compatible with Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights and therefore lawful. The report was commissioned by the master of the rolls, a keen advocate for ADR, and is hopefully going to lead to a major change to dispute resolution. Whilst mediation has […]
