The Lawdown Episode 38: Scottie Scheffler’s arrest – key employment law takeaways; unfair dismissal claims from Virgin Atlantic employees; departure of Klopp and Hayes from Women’s Football Clubs; and publication of Inclusion at Work Panel report

In our latest episode of The Lawdown, Partners Beth Hale and Emma Bartlett, Senior Associate Wonu Sanda and Associate Kia Aoki discuss the following:

  1. Scottie Scheffler, the current number one ranked golfer in the world, was arrested and charged with assault of a police officer and three misdemeanours during the PGA Championship. All charges were later dropped. In light of this, we explore when and how employers should take action in regards to an employee’s conduct outside the workplace.
  2. Virgin Atlantic faces allegations of unfair dismissal by over 200 former employees due to its furlough redundancy procedures during Covid-19. We discuss the issues employers may face in a similar situation, and the importance of careful consideration when looking at selection criteria in a redundancy process.
  3. Following the departures of football managers, Jürgen Klopp and Emma Hayes from Liverpool and Chelsea Women’s Football Clubs respectively, we discuss the importance of succession planning in an organisation’s leadership, specifically the importance of getting the messaging right.
  4. The Inclusion at Work Panel has published its report on improving workplace diversity and inclusion. We discuss the report’s findings and recommendations for employers.
