Quick & Practical Legal Updates: The People Edition
1. Bullying at work V constructive feedback
Following Raab’s resignation, how companies deal with staff behaviour is, not surprisingly, in the spotlight – see our blog about when a tough management style can become bullying.

Quiet firing (or nudging an employee to resign) may seem an easy solution for getting rid of ‘problem’ staff, but it can cause bigger problems. Find out how to handle this properly and do the right thing here.
3. EMI Options – what’s new this year
There have been some recent changes to EMI share options schemes and how they work – from HMRC announcing a firmer view on the use of discretion, to a longer deadline for registering options. Make sure you don’t fall foul of the rules and lose the benefits of your scheme and/ or hit a problem during due diligence. For more details click here.
4. Lay-offs – being human and doing not right
Making redundancies is not something anyone wants to do. But if you have to do so make sure you get it right, because otherwise it can be more expensive and take longer than budgeted. That includes being human about it, as well as following the correct legal process. See our tips here.

Kristo Kaarman, boss of payments firm Wise, is taking a sabbatical to spend more time with his family – a refreshing change and positive move to fixing work-life balance in the tech world. But is it easier to do it if you’re the boss? Or is he making important changes from the top down, leading by example and making sure others can do the same? Find out more here.
