The Lawdown Episode 14: The Relaunch – Naomi Osaka, Gary Lineker’s IR35 dispute and the potential impact of Covid electronic test and trace rules

In this “relaunch” episode of the Lawdown, Partner Beth Hale, Senior Associate Wonu Sanda and Associate Pooja Dasgupta discuss:

  • Naomi Osaka dropping out of the French Open due to mental health issues and the wider workplace implications of this story, including employer health and safety, mental health and wellbeing obligations, and potential reasonable adjustments under the Equality Act 2010;
  • Gary Lineker’s recent dispute with HMRC over alleged non-compliance with the IR35 regime, the IR35 regime itself and some wider considerations from both a tax and employment law perspective; and
  • Entering hospitality venues after the easing of certain lockdown restrictions – the potentially discriminatory impact of Covid electronic test and trace rules on people without access to technology, and some of the key data protection considerations for businesses in adopting such technology.

We hope you enjoy it! For more information on any of the topics discussed, or to suggest a story for us to cover, please email us at info@cm-murray.com.
