Health & Safety - Dismissals and Detriment
Delivered by experienced barrister and lecturer Alastair Hodge of 5 Essex Court, this 30-minute session will focus on one aspect of health & safety law, namely where it interweaves with employment law and the interrelationship between employees, safety representatives and safety committees.
Consideration will be given to the protection which section 44 of the Employment Rights Act provides in relation to health and safety detriments. Similar provisions that exist in relation to protection for dismissal on health and safety grounds will also be discussed, along with its limitations, and how the legislation works in practise; a niche, often overlooked but important aspect of health and safety law.
Finally, the causal link between the detriment and / or dismissal in health and safety matters will be explored in some detail.
