#Doctors are calling for a change in the law following a junior doctor’s unsuccessful #whistleblowing claim. The junior doctor raised certain safety concerns to his #employer, an NHS Trust, and to HEE, the body responsible for his training and #career development. His conduct was then called into question by the HEE, and his doctor training number was deleted. The judgment found that HEE was not the employer, and so the claim could not be brought against them.

Figures released by the Office for National Statistics this week revealed that the rate of #employment in the UK is at a record high, reaching 69.2% in March. However, the ONS suggests that much of the rise is attributable to the increase in state pension age for #women which is causing them to delay their #retirement.

The CIPD has warned that the forecast for #pay #growth is expected to be 1.7% for the next year, a relatively weak pace of growth. The research also suggests that the rate of growth is expected to stagnate until at least 2020. Before the 2008 financial crisis, pay growth was around 3 to 5% per year.

The COO of #Barclays’ investment banking operations has told the court in evidence that he had no knowledge of #Libor benchmark interest rates being rigged. Michael Bagguley, a witness for the prosecution, denied the suggestions that he saw nothing improper about manipulation of the rate and that he knew it was taking place. The defendants’ trial continues.

A recent study has revealed that #fathers working full time earn more than their childless counterparts by 21%. It is unclear what causes this significant difference, but it may relate to hours worked, as well as #positivediscrimination. Mothers working full time, on the other hand, were paid 11% less than their colleagues.

Zizzi is the latest company to announce cuts to #staff perks. The restaurant chain has reduced the amounts staff earn from tips, with the company is insisting this is not related to the introduction of the national living #wage. Caffe Nero, B&Q and Waitrose have all made changes to staff conditions following the increase in wages.

Four couriers are bringing a claim in an #EmploymentTribunal to challenge their current self-employed status. The bicycle couriers claim they are not allowed to work for others and their deliveries are monitored by courier companies, and as such are seeking a declaration from the tribunal that they are in fact #workers- giving them rights to a minimum wage and paid holidays.

Recent ONS figures show #unemployment figures rose by 21,000 in the three months to February, the first increase in unemployment since the period from May to July last year. #Wage growth has also risen by 1.8%, which is a slow-down compared with previous months – suggesting the UK #labour market is losing steam.
