A Fox Williams team led by partner James Carlton with legal directors Sona Ganatra and David Murphy has written the chapter on ‘Employee Rights: the UK Perspective’, in GIR’s new guide ‘The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations’, published in the UK this week.
The guide covers US and UK practice and procedure on what to do at every stage during the lifecycle of a corporate investigation, from discovery of the initial problem to conclusion and beyond. The book looks at the key risks that arise and the challenges they pose, together with the opportunities that may exist for resolution.
The UK employee rights chapter written by the Fox Williams team covers contractual and statutory employee rights, including what constitutes a reasonable ground for suspension? It also considers representation, and indemnification and insurance coverage, including awareness of situations where indemnifications may cease, as well as failure to co-operate with the investigation. The final part of the chapter looks at privilege concerns for employees and other individuals.
The guide also provides detailed comparable surveys of the law and practice in 12 other jurisdictions.
