Brexit (that is, the UK leaving the European Union) has been delayed again — potentially until 31 October 2019. As an employer who employs migrant staff, the large proportion of whom are EU/ EEA citizens, what preparations and issues should I be considering before this date?
I need to schedule a disciplinary meeting for an employee who permanently works night shifts 8pm–8am. Do I have to schedule this meeting during the night shift or can I schedule it during my normal office hours, ie between 9am–5pm?
A number of my employees are practising Muslims. They have complained that they consider themselves to be forced to take time off over Christmas (because we have a one week shut down) and yet they have to use up their holiday entitlement if they want to take time off over Ramadan, which lasts for a month. They believe this amounts to religious discrimination. What can we do?
