Here are some of this month's highlights...
Commercial news: earlier this month, court fees increased for money claims exceeding £10,000. The new fee will be 5% of the value of the claim capped at a maximum fee of £10,000.
Marketing & Advertising news: the Advertising Standards Authority ASA has published a list of the top ten most complained about advertisements. The ASA says that the fact that the three most complained about advertisements ever have appeared in 2014
reflects the rise of social media, which has allowed members of the public to voice and co-ordinate their concerns about advertisements.
For more information on advertising regulation, see our risk management guide Practice Note: In-house lawyers: risk management: advertising law compliance
Employment news: it’s not unusual for companies to want to restrict existing generous benefits and particularly defined benefit pension schemes. If your business wishes to cut back on what it offers to staff, it will make sense to first read
about the recent IBM case.
