The Supreme Court has ruled that Judges and other non-contractual office holders are protected if they blow the whistle, but they cannot be classified as “workers”.

A recent survey has found that 1 in 4 women are too worried to ask their boss for a pay rise.

The European Court of Human Rights has overturned a previous judgment and found that a Spanish supermarket who undertook covert surveillance did not violate human rights. The surveillance was undertaken by the supermarket manager who covertly filmed shop workers stealing.
