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.

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.

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.

A Labour MP has argued that a review of the law around #selfemployed #workers is long overdue, citing the example of City Link where the drivers were employees “ in all but name”. He calls for greater clarity for the criteria of self employment, and a special forum, such as an Ombudsman or agency, where individuals could contest their self-employed status.

A recent study has revealed that female accountants receive £17,000 less than their male counterparts per year. Overall, these figures show the pay gap is still narrower than average, as ONS statistics show women are paid 81% of what male colleagues receive. However, the pay gap for accountants increases to 37% when looking solely at the bonus element.

Sir Philip Hampton will chair a review into increasing the number of #women in #executive roles in the UK’s largest companies. Sir Philip, the chairman of GlaxoSmithKline, was appointed by the government to build on the work done by Mervyn Davies’ recommendations on getting more women on company boards, which found that many of the women appointed to board level since 2011 took non-executive roles.

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.

Full-time working fathers out-earn their childless counterparts by more than a fifth, research suggests.

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.

Café Nero staff are starting to feel the effect of cost-cutting, as the company announced that national living wage would have a ‘significant financial impact’ on the business. Workers were informed that following the introduction of the #nationallivingwage, they would no longer be entitled to a free lunch. However, Cafe Nero has also announced it was extending the increase in wages to all its workers, not just those over the age of 25.

The company said the change in wages, which came into force on 1 April, will have a “significant financial impact of the business” and...

A survey by Think Tank the Centre for the Modern Family reveals that 23% of British workers would be willing to take a #paycut to spend more time away from the office. However, the study also shows that almost a quarter of medium-sized businesses do no more than is legally required in terms of offering #flexible# working.
