  • Divorce: Who Gets The Pets
    As a nation of animal lovers, it would be nice if the same could be said for here, but under UK law they are treated as a material possession – the same as your sofa or car.  Courts often see this as much more of a peripheral issue than most owners would like, but until a different approach is adopted in this country there are steps you can take to try and make sure the pets stay with you.  Proof...

  • Former Bishop of Chester Accused of Child Sex Abuse
    A lengthy and careful police investigation has revealed that Victor Whitsey, the former Anglican Bishop of Chester, was almost certainly a prolific abuser of children.

Before that he had been Bishop of Hereford and earlier worked as a parish priest in Chorley, South Ribble and Bolton. The abuse team at Slat...

  • City Bike Hire Schemes: Your Safety Guide
    But while the booming popularity of initiatives such as London’s Santander ‘Boris’ cycles and Manchester’s Mobikes has resulted in a surge in the number of people ditching their cars in favour of a healthier and greener two-wheeled commute, some have questioned if safety is being sacrificed.   If you’re injured riding a cycle hire scheme bike, who is responsible? It will depend entirely on the ci...

  • Morning Sickness: Why Kate’s Lucky She Has an Understanding Boss
    One woman who knows that feeling all too well is the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who this week announced her third baby with Prince William was on the way. As with her previous two pregnancies, Kate is suffering from a particularly severe form of morning sickness – hyperemesis gravidarum – and has already had to cancel an engagement.

  • First Day of School: Embarrassing Photos, Social Media And Your Children’s Rights Online
    Much to the embarrassment of many youngsters, that picture will probably get shared far and wide across social media, as parents update friends and family – and the wider world - on the big ‘back to school’ day. But what rights do your children have over how you use their photos and data online? More than you might think. Tough New Protection Around Children’s Data The General Data Protection Reg...

  • Wills – The Dangers of Doing Them The 'Write' Way
    Tracey Leaning died following a battle with cancer and her grieving partner, Richard Guest, was surprised to learn that she had left him her entire estate in a handwritten will, also known as a holographic last will and testament.

  • Stars Aren’t The Only Ones Caught in a Gender Pay Gap
    Estimates by business magazine Forbes showed the men earned a collective $488.5m (£381m) topped by Mark Wahlberg who netted $68m (£53m). But the annual analysis showed the leading women earned $172.5m (£135m) during the same period, with Oscar-winner Emma Stone topping the list with $26m (£20m). And the differences aren’t exclusive to the entertainment industry. Indeed just a few weeks ago The Su...

  • What am I Entitled to? Making Sure All is Fair in Love And Divorce
    Take, for example, the recent case of Graham and Maria Mills. This is a case where the parties divorced in 2002, with the husband agreeing, as part of the settlement, to pay his ex-wife £1,100 a month for the rest of her life. However, in 2014, Mr Mills applied to reduce the maintenance but Mrs Mills cross applied for an increase. At trial, Mr Mills argued that his former wife had grossly mismanag...

  • What Can I do if my Other Half Won’t Agree to a Divorce?
    While family judges will often approve an application from someone who has been subjected to unreasonable behaviour or whose partner has been unfaithful, for example, if the courts won’t grant a divorce then the law states couples who don’t both consent must wait five years.    For those resigned to just sitting it out, however, there are other options and more and more people are taking advantage...

  • Why it’s Vital Patients Know Their Rights – Consent Principles Explained
    Surgeon Commander Anthony Lambert OBE has been labelled “not trustworthy” by the 12-year-old boy’s “furious” parents after he carried out a procedure to “free adhesions” on the youngster’s genitals during a hernia operation. Cdr Lambert had previously asked the patient and his parents for permission to examine a minor problem in the boy’s genitals during a preoperative consultation but they had r...

  • Don’t Wives And Mothers Make a ‘Special Contribution’ as Well?
    It’s not a question many of us will ever have been faced with but it’s something Ryan Giggs’s estranged wife Stacey will be forced to consider as her decree nisi was granted last week. Stacey’s soon-to-be ex-husband, former Manchester United and Wales star Giggs, had previously argued that he made a “special contribution” to the marriage and should consequently be entitled to more than half their...

  • Tenancy Agreements And Contracts: Your Checklist Guide
    There are different types of tenancy agreements but the most common by far is called an ‘Assured Shorthold Tenancy’, also known as an AST. The majority of private tenancies will automatically be ASTs, even if there is no written tenancy agreement. An AST can be for a fixed term or ‘periodic’, meaning that the contract rolls from week to week or month to month.  If a fixed term has ended and anoth...

  • Speak Out – Don’t Assume Bosses Won’t Want to Help
    Apparently work is more likely to be a cause of mental health issues for men than women with men being twice as likely to have mental health problems due to our jobs compared to problems outside of work. One in three men attribute poor mental health to their work, compared to one in seven who say it’s problems elsewhere. Women, on the other hand, say that their job and problems outside of work ar...

  • Why is Equality in Women's Football Still Offside?
    Female footballers typically earn a fraction of what their male counterparts are paid. It was revealed in 2015 that while Wayne Rooney earned £300,000 per week, Steph Houghton, the England captain earned £35,000 a year. But is this lawful? Equal pay law Under the Equality Act 2010 men and women are entitled to equal pay for equal work. Anyone employed under a contract personally to do work is ent...

  • What Axing of Employment Tribunal Fees Means for Wronged Workers
    Now the Supreme Court has echoed our views, ruling these fees are unlawful and discriminatory, following a challenge brought by Unison. Statistics show that since fees of up to £1,200 were imposed for claims such as unfair dismissal, equal pay and redundancy, there had been a 70 per cent drop in cases brought to tribunal. Some of the worst impacted have been women because they are more likely to ...

  • Mind the Gap? What to do if You Think You’re Getting Paid Less Than Your Male Colleagues
    For years women have been fighting for it, but according to the Office of National Statistics, men still earn almost 20 per cent more than their female colleagues.   As figures from the BBC have shown, inequality still exists right at the top. Just two of the 14 best paid people were women and Claudia Winkleman, the highest paid female, took home between £450,000 and £499,999 last year, compared ...

    His parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, argued radical treatment abroad could offer their son hope of recovery for his rare disorder. But doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital said the unproven procedure would only prolong little Charlie’s suffering. In the end, following a series of court battles, Charlie’s parents decided to stop their legal fight to over-rule medics. Many people have been ...

  • What Constitutes Work Related Stress?
    One of the first questions we would ask a member is whether or not they have been diagnosed with a recognised psychiatric disorder. A claim for damages cannot be made if someone is suffering from “stress” alone. Common psychiatric disorders include depression, PTSD or generalised anxiety disorder. A member may have been to see their GP because of work related stress but are unaware they have been...

  • Government Agency Tells Sex Abuse Victims: "No Compensation, You Consented"
    It is outrageous that children as young as 12 have been denied damages, even in cases when their abusers have been brought to justice and jailed. Under the criminal injuries compensation scheme (CICA), survivors of abuse can be eligible for payouts of up to £500,000. The Government must review the CICA guidelines as a matter of urgency so that survivors may receive the redress they rightly deserv...

    Is this normal? Yes, absolutely. We all like to think we’re indispensable and any significant period of time out of the workplace will feel weird for a while. It’s when your reasons for calling are motivated by a fear that your career will slide away while your bonding with baby that it becomes troubling – particularly if your employer is feeding your concerns.   All women in employment are entit...
