Libby HubbardProfessional Support Lawyer
Professional Support Lawyer in the pensions and employment team.
I am a Professional Support Lawyer in the pensions and employment team. I work with all sectors to ensure our clients receive current, practical and sector-specific knowledge of developments; be they in case law or legislation. In addition, I manage the team’s knowledge management system to facilitate the provision of timely, sector-specific and client-focused advice.
I qualified as an employment lawyer in a large international law firm and since then have gained substantial experience working as a Professional Support Lawyer in several firms prior to joining Anthony Collins Solicitors. I particularly enjoy breaking down complex legal decisions or legislation and applying their ramifications to our clients’ situations. We do this through regular legal updates, bespoke and more generic training events and specific products.
This last week, we have had three different pieces of Government guidance, one confusing Treasury Direction and some conflicting SSP Regulations
The Government’s new guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (furlough) was released late Thursday 9 April. Once again, it’s a mixed bag.
We must be living in a strange world when the usual April changes in employment law ground us and even offer some light relief! This ebriefing outlines the changes that have come into force.
Following a fortnight of announcements and proposed legislation regarding employment and furlough, here's our latest update.
In this our third Coronavirus briefing, we will address the latest employment developments and their implications for employers and employees.
Issues such as self-isolation, Statutory Sick Pay and a downturn in business are key and the situation is not a static one.
One of the key issues taking up media time currently is that of payment of employees in self-isolation or isolation as requested by medical staff or employers.
Creating an inclusive and diverse workplace culture is no longer seen as “management speak” but rather as a necessity for success.
An issue being brought into public view in the latter part of this decade, thanks to a healthy handful of royals and celebrities, is the existence of hidden disabilities.
