We provide a mid-year round-up of high profile employment cases in 2017. We discuss two disability discrimination cases relating to absence management (O'Brien v Bolton St Catherine's Academy) and recruitment (Government Legal Service v Brookes). We also look at one of the first employment tribunal cases relating to shared parental pay (Ali v Capita Customer Management Ltd) and two European Court of Justice cases on religious dress (Achbita and another v G4S Secure Solutions and Bougnaoui and another v Micropole SA). We finish by flagging up some upcoming cases in 2017 involving whistleblowing, the gig economy and employment status, and discuss the outstanding decisions regarding the tribunal fees regime and carrying over annual leave. Presented by Ellie Gelder and Laura Merrylees.
