Dear %%First Name%%,

Welcome to the Autumn Edition of the MILS Employment law email bulletin.

Please note: In this bulletin we aim to keep you up-to-date on some of the latest developments in employment law and although the bulletin is not intended to provide a comprehensive summary of all the changes to the law, we hope to highlight some key areas of change for motor industry employers.

Over the summer we paused our quarterly update to focus instead on regular Coronavirus and furlough updates (and goodness, there were an awful lot)! We are now returning to our quarterly updates, albeit with the inevitable focus on employment law changes enforced by the virus. In this update we are going to look at the latest briefing from the Treasury on the new Job Support Scheme (JSS) replacing the CJRS (the furlough scheme) from 31st October onwards, before turning our attention to some changes to Tribunal procedures brought about by the Coronavirus.

At the time of finalising this update, we have also just received the Government guidance on shielding and protecting the clinically extremely vulnerable. The latest guidance is here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-on-shielding-and-protecting-extremely-vulnerable-persons-from-covid-19/guidance-on-shielding-and-protecting-extremely-vulnerable-persons-from-covid-19

In case law, we look at a case in which a six-figure sum in costs was awarded against a Claimant (rare but interesting reading). Finally, we look at a recent Employment Appeal Tribunal case on the definition of disability, the facts of which are slightly bizarre and humorous (unless, perhaps, you are Alexei Navalny).
