Employment & Benefits: Newsletter June

July 1, 2019

In this newsletter we take a closer look at the authority of managers. The article examines a case from the Swedish Labour Court that addresses the issue of the authority of a manager to enter into agreements with employees which are binding on the employer.

We also examine an interesting case from the Swedish Labour Court in which the court tackles the issue of whether the termination of probationary employment was a result of the employee’s pregnancy and reduced ability to work and thus constituted direct discrimination on the basis of gender. 

As usual, we also have two labour and employment law features. One deals with the new committee established by the Swedish Government to investigate a modernisation of labour and employment law, and the other regarding the government’s proposal for new legislation circulated for consideration in which a proposal is made to extend employment protection.
