PEAT Outcome - relevant legal knowledge

OBJECTIVES

This seminar aims to provide an overview of recent case law in the field of employment law and in particular the potential impact of decisions on employee and worker status in the GIG economy.

The seminar will also discuss the implications of the decision of the CJEU published recently in King v. The Sash Window Workshop regarding ‘worker’ status, the impact of the decision on paid annual leave or ‘holiday pay’ and the incompatibility of the provision in the Working Time Regulations 1998 with the provision in the EU Working Time Directive. This may well be the most significant judgment before Brexit (and a very costly one as the judgment suggests that the Deduction from Wages (Limitation) Regs 2014 limiting recovery of holiday pay to 2 years are incompatible with EU law and thus claimants could claim back for many years).

SPEAKER

Linda Marsh is a highly experienced advocate in all areas of employment law and has appeared in Employment Tribunals throughout Scotland and in England, the Employment Appeal Tribunal, the Outer House and the Inner House of the Court of Session and the Supreme Court. Prior to being called to the Bar, her previous employment, as an Assistant Director in the former Strathclyde Regional Council means that she has had invaluable first-hand experience of holding a senior management position and of addressing employment issues, arising in large organisations, particularly in the public sector. During that time she was involved in the preparation of what were probably the two most significant equal pay cases decided, in favour of the employer respondents, by the Judicial Committee of the House of Lords in the 1990s. Linda has both advised and appeared for a significant number of Scottish local authorities, and other public sector bodies, including police authorities and the Medical Research Council as well as advising and appearing for a number of major global and multinational companies in the private sector, including Coca-Cola, Vodafone and Shell International. Linda also retains an interest in and knowledge of aviation law having held a pilot’s licence, including a Flying Instructor Rating, for over 20 years.
