I recently recorded a podcast with Alex Wilson-Campbell,  Manager of a company that specialises in CV Writing Services,  on the Birmingham City Council v Abdulla  equal pay case.  I wrote about it previously here.

In the podcast we talk about the Abdulla case and what it might mean for equal pay disputes in this country.  We also discuss some of the wider issues surrounding gender pay inequality.  You can listen to it by clicking here.

Podcast#4 – Philip Henson of Bargate Murray


In this latest podcast I’m joined by Philip Henson, Partner at Bargate Murray Solicitors to chew over the new and proposed reforms to employment law and the case of Seldon v Clarkson, Wright & Jakes.

Health Warning:  This podcast is just an informal chat between two blokes with nothing better to do than talk about employment law one evening.  It doesn’t constitute legal advice in any way.
