Employment—tune in from 5:30 secsIn 2013 the Employment Rights Act (EAT) was amended to allow employers to have frank conversations with employees without the risk of those conversations being used in a subsequent court or tribunal.

In another case, Rawlinson v Brightside Group Ltd, the EAT found an employer acting in breach of the applied terms by trying to soften the blow of a dismissal by telling the employee they were being dismissed due to a reorganisation.
Competition—tune in from 7:22 secsThe Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and the Crown Commercial Service launched a new e-learning package in December to identify bid-rigging.
