Tuesday 27 April 2021
16:00 - 17:30
London

Please join us on Thursday 22 April at 16:00 GMT for a webinar on the High Court judgment in the Rihan v Ernst & Young Global Ltd & Ors.

Ben Hubble QC of 4 New Square Chambers alongside Paul Dowling and Mike Cain from Leigh Day’s International and Employment teams will discuss the implications of the High Court’s judgment in Rihan v Ernst & Young Global Ltd & Ors, following EY’s recent withdrawal of its appeal against the decision.   

This ground-breaking judgment creates a new duty of care on UK multinational companies not to embroil overseas workers in unethical conduct. In this webinar Ben Hubble and Paul Dowling, who acted for the Claimant, will discuss the background to the case, the legal issues and the implications of the judgment for UK companies providing professional services overseas. In addition Mike Cain will provide some background on other whistleblowing remedies currently available under UK employment legislation.
