Employers considering dismissing an employee should ensure they do not dismiss the employee because they are 'associated' with a person with a 'protected characteristic' such as disability, race or age - or risk an associative discrimination claim.
Ex-spouses paying or receiving maintenance should consider whether the maintenance could be ended or varied following comments in a recent ruling. They should also consider whether they can apply to reduce maintenance on the basis that their ex-spouse should go and find a job.
