The Lawdown Episode 32: RNLI sexual misconduct allegations; Study on the health benefits of napping during the day; Equal pay in women’s sports; and an inappropriate question for the captain of Morocco’s women’s football team

We are delighted to share Episode 32 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, Senior Associate Wonu Sandaand seconded Trainee Solicitor Sam Whiteley discuss the following:

  1. The legal issues surrounding the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s handling of a sexual misconduct claim against a man in charge of one of its lifeboats (in particular, the question of suspension)
  2. A study published in June by researchers at UCL and the University of the Republic of Uruguay suggesting that having a nap during the day is good for brain health, and could slow the rate at which the brain shrinks with ageing. Are employers taking the benefits of napping seriously, and what obligations do they have to do so?
  3. The issue of equal pay in sports, and particularly football, which has been brought into the spotlight again following the Australian women’s football professional players union posting a video outlining injustices in the pay gap between them and their male counterparts
  4. Finally, the fallout following a reporter asking the captain of the Morocco women’s football team, Ghizlane Chebbak, whether there were any gay players in their squad and what life was like for them in Morocco?
