The Lawdown Episode 25: Man United’s Mason Greenwood; Ministerial Misdemeanours; and Met Police Misconduct Failings

We are delighted to share Episode 25 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, Senior Associate Pooja Dasgupta and Partners Beth Hale and Sarah Chilton discuss the following:

  1. Manchester United’s handling of allegations made against Mason Greenwood, pending the outcome of criminal proceedings against the prominent footballer, including discussion around the avenues currently open to the club; the potential legal consequences associated with early termination of Greenwood’s contract; and the impact of the concurrent criminal proceedings upon the club’s decision making process.
  2. Liz Truss’ unprecedented short term in office; bullying allegations recently made against Gavin Williamson; and Matt Hancock’s widely criticised foray into “the Jungle” – drawing upon parallels in the workplace context and relevant considerations for employers in similar circumstances.
  3. The conclusions reached by Baroness Casey in her interim report on the current misconduct system in the Met Police, focusing on the findings made in relation to the significant delays in the processing and determination of disciplinary offences within the Met Police; and the impact of those delays on complainants, perpetrators and wider cultural issues across the police force.
