Editor’s note
=============
Andrew Monroe recently faced a tricky situation: an employee
refused to work with a colleague because she’d had an affair
with her husband – what course of action is appropriate for the
business? HR Zone invited Nicholas Snowden, senior solicitor at
Clarkslegal LLP and Stephanie Wootton, employment law expert at
Browne Jacobson to present their ideas on the law governing
constructive dismissal. See their answers at:
http://www.hrzone.co.uk/item/146054

Do you agree with their advice? We’d like to hear your views.

Regards,
