Case round-up

Whiley v Christopher Clarke Workshops Limited, EAT, [11 March 2003] Informal agreements can often be difficult to prove and, therefore, equallydifficult to enforce. Mr Whiley sustained a back injury and was eventually signed off work by hisGP. After he had been absent for approximately two months, his manager spoke tohis GP. The manager updated the company’s managing director of thatconversation. However, instead of referring to a likely three-month absence,the manager misleadingly informed him that Whiley would be off work for monthsand might not work again. As a result, Whiley was dismissed with immediateeffect. He brought complaints of unfair dismissal and disabilitydiscrimination. The tribunal found that the company’s failure to follow any proper procedurewas unfair. However, the claim for disability discrimination was dismissed onthe basis the company could not have known that Whiley was”disabled”. Having delivered its decision, the tribunal invited theparties to discuss a settlement, and the sum of £2,000 was agreed by handshake.Nevertheless, Whiley still sought to appeal the tribunal’s finding thatthere had been no discrimination. Despite the company’s protestations that the appeal should not be heard asthe case had been compromised by the settlement, the EAT upheld the appeal. Itfound that the terms of the settlement had not been recorded or signed by therepresentatives. It also concluded that the agreed sum only related to thetribunal’s finding that Whiley had been unfairly dismissed and was not “infull and final settlement”. As such, he was not barred from pursuing hisappeal and, having done so successfully, was entitled to further compensation. No time for part-time? Sibley v The Girls’ Day School Trust, Norwich High School for Girls,EAT, [20 May 2003] In recent months, even prior to the new flexible working rights, there havebeen many successful cases against employers who have refused part-time work.As this case demonstrates, however, while employers must give all such requestsserious consideration, not every job is suited to that arrangement. Ms Sibley was a teacher. Following a period of maternity leave, she asked toreturn to work part-time. While the school agreed to grant her request if apart-time post came up, it did not accept that she could undertake her currentpost on a part-time basis as it included form tutor duties. Sibley resigned, claiming constructive unfair dismissal and sexdiscrimination. She alleged that the school’s requirement meant that, as awoman, she was less able to meet the full-time condition it was imposing than amale teacher would be. As such, she believed its conduct was indirectlydiscriminatory. However, the tribunal rejected both claims. In particular, it found that theschool’s belief that form tutor duties should be carried out full-time wasreasonably held, and was objectively justified as a policy. Sibley appealed unsuccessfully. The EAT accepted the tribunal’s decisionthat the school’s approach was both professional and reasonable, and that thecondition it was applying in this case was objectively justified.

Brexit making TV programme filming ‘difficult’ claims auctions show star

Leaf eaters

first_imgPests love cole cropsYoung plants, particularly those of crops that will eventually form heads, are very susceptible to damage from flea beetles, cutworms and other pests in the soil, said University of Georgia Cooperative Extension entomologist Alton Sparks.“Flea beetles are the ones that cause small shot holes in leaves,” Sparks said.Other pests include seed-corn maggots, which attack the germinating seed and very young seedlings, and cutworms, which clip the plant off at the soil line shortly after it emerges. Fall vegetables want water and food, tooThe key to keeping plants healthy is to water and fertilize them properly.“Many home gardeners forget to water their plants in the fall,” Westerfield said. “The cool weather tricks them into thinking their plants don’t need water.”Water thoroughly once a week, he said. Soaker hoses or drip irrigation help prevent creating an environment for diseases. “These methods water from the bottom which keeps the leaves dry,” he said. “Wet leaves can lead to disease problems.” Transplants bestThese seedling pests cause little damage once the plants are well established, or if you use transplants.“Occasionally, small insects can be seen tunneling within the leaves of young plants,” Sparks said. “However, caterpillars that feed on leaves cause the most concern. They eat the harvestable part of the plant and can reduce plant growth if they eat enough foliage.” The best way to fight back is to regularly scout the garden for pests, said Bob Westerfield, a UGA Extension horticulturist. By Sharon DowdyUniversity of GeorgiaWhen insects munch on summer vegetable leaves, gardeners cringe but are happy the tasty fruit is spared. When bugs munch on fall crops like cabbage and turnip greens, well, gardeners must fight back to save the harvest. Cole crops like cabbage, collards, cauliflower and broccoli are typically transplanted in Georgia in the fall. Mustard, kale and turnip greens are often seeded directly into the ground. center_img Use integrated pest managment methods“Consider hand-picking insects off your plants or using an organic alternative control like Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis),” he said. “It’s used to control many caterpillar-type insects.”Healthy plants are the ones best prepared to fight insect and disease damage, he said.“Just like humans are more susceptible to colds and viruses when we are in a weakened state, plants are more susceptible to insects and diseases if they aren’t healthy,” he said. Mulch keeps moisture inAdding two inches to three inches of mulch will retain moisture and help prevent disease and insect problems, Westerfield said.Just like their summer counterparts, fall garden vegetables need to be fertilized. Cabbage and mustard are “heavy feeders” and should be fertilized throughout the season, he said.In cabbage, controlling foliage feeders is less critical in young plants but becomes more critical at the cupping stage, or when the head begins to form, Sparks said. “The bottom line for late-season insect control in most cole crops is to control insects early in the growing cycle,” Sparks said. “This will keep insects from being a problem at harvest time.”last_img read more
