Karl Wilson, Partner and Litigation specialist at Marsden Rawsthorn believes that many businesses are delaying payment to assist with cash flow. However they are unaware of the penalties that can be enforced when a supplier takes action to recover late payments and often end up paying substantially more as a result.
One of Lancashire's top commercial lawyers has welcomed changes to the statutory grievance and dismissal procedures which come into force in April. The current procedures will be abolished in favour of a new ACAS Code of Practice. The effect of the new code will mean that the employer's failure to follow the code will not result in a finding of automatic unfair dismissal.
