As marriage rates collapse among middle classes, it has never been more important for cohabiting couples to protect their rights
2 Oct 2015
According to a recent study by the Marriage Foundation, the middle classes are turning their backs on marriage.
While the vast majority (84%) of middle earning families with young children were still marrying in 1994, only 59% were married in 2012. That’s a drop of 25% over 18 years. In the 1990’s, this trend away from marriage was, on the whole, confined to low-income groups. However, if the research is correct, this now seems to be spreading.
Of course, today the UK benefits from a variety of diverse family structures, and, for many, the idea of marriage has become both outdated and unnecessary. However, according to the Marriage Foundation: “When a social-economic group turns away from marriage, we see a corresponding hike in the rates of family breakdown” and that is worrying.
Changes to ADR Regulations in Business to Consumer Contracts – Are you Compliant?
1 Oct 2015
On 1 October 2015, new regulations came into force that that will affect all businesses in the UK which sell goods, services or digital content to consumers.
Under the regulations, any business trading with consumers will have to provide specific details on how to resolve disputes through the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Your business must provide details of the name and website address of an approved ADR provider which is capable of facilitating resolution in the event of a dispute and whether or not you intend to use that provider. This information should be provided at the outset of a transaction in your business’ standard terms and conditions, on your business’ website and whenever your business’ internal complaints procedures have been exhausted.
Employment tribunal system needs radical reform
28 Sep 2015
According to the Law Society of England and Wales, unlawful employment practices will continue to go unpunished unless the current tribunal system is radically overhauled.
Publishing proposals that it believes will ensure the employment tribunal structure is fair to all involved, the Society argues that, due to the complexity and cost of the current system, employees and employers are discouraged from bringing and defending claims.
In its proposals, the Law Society has suggested that a ‘single jurisdiction’ consisting of four levels would help to create a more fair and efficient system. These levels would be determined flexibly, depending on their intricacy and the financial stakes involved.
