Manage episode 294618463 series 2310985
Given the massive demand for more podcasts before Autumn, Simon and Jack have relented and released their final (bonus) podcast in The Law Behind The Headlines season.
Season 6: 'The Law Behind the Headlines' series of podcasts. We take a look at the stories making the headlines and ask, “Is this case for real? How did the employer get away with that? And what is the law behind the headlines?”
In the final (bonus) episode: Simon and Jack discuss the case O’Brien v Bloom Perfumery where Mr O’Brien’s employer offers him furlough or dismissal on notice. He picks furlough but his employer dismisses him with notice. Then, less than a fortnight later, dismisses him on the basis of gross misconduct. Was this dismissal fair? Is the team’s suggested headline better than the actual headline? Does the marketing team need to spend their remaining budget on a dialect coach for Si & JB? (the answer to each question is a resounding “no”)
Employment Lawyer In Your Pocket podcast will return in the Autumn.
