Corporate & Commercial: The Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act (SBEEA) 2015

The government has updated its implementation timetable of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015. View three important changes to this schedule when you tune in from 00:20.

Corporate & Commercial: Interpretation of contracts

Last month we reported on the Arnold v Britton case that demonstrated how a court will allow contracts to take their literal meaning even where this results in one of the parties bearing a liability that was unlikely to have been contemplated.  This approach has been again emphasised in the recent Court of Appeal case of Wood v Sureterm. Find out more about this case, concerning the purchase of an insurance brokerage business, when you tune in from 01:10.

Employment: A mobile worker's "working" day

In our August edition we flagged that it was likely that the Court of Justice of the European Union was likely to rule that mobile workers ‘working time’ for the purposes of the Working Time Regulations will start from the time they start their travels in the morning until they return home and not from the time that they arrive at their first appointment and end when they leave their last appointment.  This has now been confirmed by the European Court of Justice.  Tune in from 08:35 to find out more.
