The Lawdown Episode 24: Government “scraps the cap” for banker bonuses; the long and winding road to closing the gender pay gap; and the latest hiring and firing trends

We are delighted to share Episode 24 of The Lawdown, our regular podcast discussing the latest key employment, discrimination and partnership law-related news stories, and the interesting legal issues behind them.

In our latest episode of The Lawdown, Partner Emma Bartlett and Senior Associates Wonu Sanda and Pooja Dasgupta discuss the following:

  • The government’s pledge to scrap the current cap on banker bonuses, forming part of its ambitious deregulation plans for London’s financial industry in order to boost economic growth, including discussion around the potential employment law implications arising from this proposed shift;
  • Hot on the heels of International Equal Pay Day, we look at the RSC’s appointment of its first female artistic director and reflect on what has been achieved and what is being done to address the gender pay gap globally; and
  • The latest workplace hiring and firing trends going viral on social media and news outlets: “Quiet Quitting”; “fatFIRE”; and “Quiet Firing”, including a discussion regarding the ways in which these trends can impact employees, and how they should be managed by employers.
