Why are there so few rabbits this year? Is it a further outbreak of myxomatosis?

‘Whether led by “take-it-down” activists or conservative enemies of a “new Puritanism”, Britain’s culture war seems ever more shrill.’ The ‘war on woke’: who should shape Britain’s history? https://t.co/wgTrof6g37 via @financialtimes

So, the latest set of quarterly Employment Tribunal statistics, published this morning, shows a big fall in new cases in January to March this year. 🤔

Hmmm. I wonder. Some of the jurisdictional data for March, in particular, looks a bit dodgy to me. 🧐 1/n

1/THREAD: Forstater v CGD Europe: As everyone knows by now, the big picture is that F won & the belief in immutability of sex is protected under s.10 EqA. That is no surprise - many of us predicted this long ago. The judgment sets out why in very clear terms. #ukemplaw

Excellent thread on a recent EAT case. https://t.co/V2nQP8qoBd

The ‘knowledge and participation’ test from Hall is not a sufficient test for illegality in contractual performance. It may need to be supplemented by consideration of proportionality, relative culpability, centrality of the illegality to performance, and so forth (2).

Court of Appeal decision today on illegality sees Singh LJ engage with @thebigbogg's argument in the splendid collection he and @SarahCatGreen edited on Illegality After Patel v Mirza https://t.co/430L4mkdix

Excellent reflections on this difficult area of law from Singh LJ. As we argued in the introduction to our edited collection, Patel is not ‘year zero’ for illegality. The existing case law should be applied through the lens of the Patel trio, where it is possible to do so. (1) https://t.co/bj2su8tkAm

Success for @OldSqChambers. Ben Cooper QC and Anya Palmer in important test case Forstater v CGD Europe & others as EAT holds that gender critical beliefs are covered by s.10 Equality Act 2010. #ukemplaw #transgender https://t.co/K5JIo7IkiB

1 of 9/ Judgment has been handed down by the Court of Appeal in Robinson -v- His Highness Sheikh Khalid Bin Saqr Al-Qasimi today. Ms Robinson succeeded in defending the EAT decision that there was no illegality when she was dismissed.

Can fundamental rights reset the boundary between labour law and competition law for self-employed workers in need of collective protections? In this working paper, I argue that the answer is yes. With thanks to @sanjuktampaul https://t.co/vE4NLhdLJ4

Illuminating piece by @thebigbogg on the tensions between competition law and the right to collective bargaining, examining case law on ECHR, European Social Charter and ILO. Recommended breakfast reading. https://t.co/sG9ESZeBWJ

H/t to @JoMoseley1 on spotting ET case where no auto UD for employee wanting to be furloughed. Interesting findings re appropriate steps and demanding furlough/wfh. Useful addition to Covid case law. https://t.co/sRVtn4j8Ka Judgment - https://t.co/sSfMJalFVS #ukemplaw

Key finding “that the claimant did not take or propose ‘appropriate steps’ in that he was not only wanting to stay at home (which had been agreed) but also demanding that he either be placed on furlough or be allowed to work from home". https://t.co/Gl56U0O0ug

The CA judgment in Deliveroo will confirm or torpedo this hunch, but my sense is that the employment status tests are gradually aligning with the principles in the ILO Rec. https://t.co/Lg6RKUITv4

Quoted @resfoundation

Today’s Low Pay Britain report looks at the impact of the crisis on low paid workers and prospects for the recovery. We argue that ‘Building back better’ from this crisis means improving their pay and job quality. Full report: https://t.co/2yLsrdwGcb & here's a summary thread

An impressive and important report - including data on how the low paid are more lively to be victims of labour law violations, but less likely to bring an ET claim. https://t.co/jUJBPBUk2Q
