Lord Bannatyne has issued his opinion in respect the Note of The Provisional/Interim Liquidator of Equal Exchange Trading Limited  CSOH 35 which gives guidance in respect of the role of the court reporter when fixing the remuneration of a liquidator.
Shared parental leave was launched in 2015 but the uptake has been relatively low. A common question that employers asked prior to its introduction was what approach they should take to shared parental pay. In particular, employers wanted to understand whether a male employee might succeed in a sex discrimination claim if he only received statutory shared parental pay in circumstances where a female employee taking maternity leave would receive enhanced maternity pay. The Government's view was that this would not be sex discrimination.
