Businesses urged to take measures to avoid Valentine’s Day harassment risk Employment law specialists are advising businesses that inappropriate Valentine’s Day messages sent between work colleagues could lead to serious complaints and employment tribunals. Lauren Pickard, senior associate at hlw Keeble Hawson, is urging employers to ensure that their staff fully understand what is acceptable behavior – and what could constitute crossing the line. She stresses that the prevailing public mood following recent high profile harassment cases further increases the risk of a risqué card or gift leading to accusations of harassment or bullying. Lauren said: “Sensitivities are high in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein headlines and publicity following the Presidents Club event in London. In light of this, there is a real danger that a message, however innocently intended, could cause the recipient to feel they are being harassed or intimidated.” Recent cases include an employment tribunal awarding an employee £10,000 after ruling that a lewd message written from a manager in a birthday card was a form of sexual harassment. A subsequent survey of 2,000 employees commissioned by the BBC found that 53 per cent of women and 20 per cent of men said they had experienced sexual harassment, ranging from inappropriate comments to actual sexual assaults, at work or a place of study. Lauren added: “Sexual harassment can include requests for sexual favours, unwelcome sexual advances and other forms of verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. “What might be considered by the sender to be harmless office banter could be construed very differently by the recipient and in the eyes of the law. It is always good practice to keep staff guidance on what is, and what is not, appropriate in the workplace, up to date and to ensure that all employees understand it.”

Over thirty representatives from Consulegis, a high-profile international network of independent law firms and professional advisers, flew in from across Europe for the event at the firm’s Sheffield offices. Keynote speaker Tamara Harvey , a leading Professor and author of EU Law at the University of Sheffield, presented on the implications of Brexit for the legal services sector along with the legal process for withdrawal.

How to make divorce easier on children

When couples separate, the first concern of the couple involved is the effect and their children. Often couples have stayed together for longer than they would have otherwise have done to minimise this. It is best, in my opinion, to concentrate on common sense and practical measures to reduce the impact. One study about the effect of separation on children concluded that a quick divorce is worse for children than an acrimonious one and that these children may be less likely to succeed in life as a result. In my experience no one finds a divorce easy – a separation is always emotionally, financially and sometimes legally difficult. No couple enters into the process because they think it is going to be easy. Even amicable separations are hard on children – but if both parents work to safeguard them, there is no reason why children of separated parents should not grow up to achieve fulfilled lives. Over years of helping couples through their separation, I can suggest ways how estranged couples can make their split easier on their children:If possible, sit down together to tell your children that there is to be a separation or divorce. Keep explanations simple; try not to blame each other.

Always put your children’s welfare, not your own, first, and avoid unnecessary squabbles. Strive to remain cordial despite the very natural feelings of hurt you may have concerning your ex.

Try to reach a quick and easy financial outcome. It is nearly always better to collaborate and to compromise than fight over the financial issues. Strive to be fair and flexible with each other about children issues, and try to avoid disruption with last minute changes of plan. Routine is always helpful for children but it doesn’t have to be a straitjacket. Explain in simple terms to the children how their lives will change, particularly major decisions such as where they will live and how often they will see each parent. Both parents need to be flexible about existing routines if children, particularly teenagers, want to alter them.

Agree some parenting ground rules with your ex and have monthly coffee meetings to discuss how things are going with the children.

Avoid getting into a blaming situation with your ex – a spirit of cooperation will go a long way. Regularly reassure your offspring that you love them – they, in turn, are entitled to continue to love both parents. Encourage them to talk about their feelings and give them time to get used to the new situation. Don’t rush them into meeting any new partner. Consider family therapy as an option, if the children are struggling or their school reports a problem with their behaviour. Family therapy will include everyone which can be hard, but it can work well in giving the children a chance to be heard. Ultimately, divorce has been easier to obtain for the last 50 years in the UK. Previously, people were often confined in loveless and abusive relationships. There is no research available as to how those relationships affected children. The number of young people undergoing higher education since the 1970s has rocketed despite divorce numbers rising more than six fold between 1955 and 1985. I strongly urge all separating couples to do everything they can to ensure their split is as non-confrontational as possible. They can work with professional advisers to resolve family disputes constructively and invest in one of the collaborative routes to divorce to reduce tension and conflict.

News on the Block Q&A - Sub-letting with power of attorney


We wonder if you could advise us on the following. We have a situation of a lessee who is now permanently in a care home with the power of attorney vested in three people, his son, his daughter and a lifelong friend. The son and daughter both live in the USA and intend to rent out the flat. The lease is ambiguous with regard to sub-letting stating only: ... “Not to assign underlet or part with the possession of part only of the said flat”. Regardless of this, a number of flats are already sub-let. We are wondering if the POA gives them the right to sub-let the flat. Any advice on the matter would be much appreciated. ANSWER Many thanks for your question. In replying, I have taken advice from a colleague in the probate team of my firm. By way of background, if the donor has granted a Lasting Power of Attorney in respect of their property and financial affairs, which has been duly registered at the Office of the Public Guardian, their attorney will be authorised to make any decisions in respect of the property or finances that the donor would otherwise be able to make herself. This is subject to any contrary instructions or preferences in the document. Depending on how the attorneys are appointed to act within the document, all three will need to be party to the agreement to sublet (if it is a joint appointment) or, alternatively, only one or two of them need to be party (if it is a joint and several appointment). If the donor retains the capacity to make decisions regarding her own affairs, but is physically unable to deal with them, the attorneys are able to proceed with the agreement to sublet - provided that they do so with her full knowledge and consent. If the donor has granted an Enduring Power of Attorney, her attorney should only be able to enter into the agreement to sublet on her behalf if the document has been registered at the Office of the Public Guardian. Although an Enduring Power of Attorney can be used by the attorneys without any formal Court registration in some circumstances, if they have reason to believe that the donor has become - or is becoming - incapable of managing her own property or financial decisions, they should ensure that the document is fully registered before making any further arrangements in respect of the property.

In all cases, the attorneys are obliged to act in the donor’s best interests. Accordingly, any sublet of the flat can only go ahead if it is in her interest for it to do so.

In dealing then with the clause itself, I am not sure I agree that the lease is ambiguous with regards to subletting. The clause you have cited restricts subletting of part of the flat. If it is the intention to sublet the whole flat (which I assume it is) then, from the information you provided, there does not appear to be a restriction against this.

Data security on menu of March 23 GDPR workshop in Leeds

The challenge of complying with tough new data protection laws is the focus of a business breakfast held at the Leeds office of hlw Keeble Hawson on Friday, March 23.

The event aims to help companies get to grips with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) – the biggest overhaul of data legislation in a generation.

Under the terms of GDPR, which comes into force across the EU on May 25 2018, companies can incur fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual turnover, whichever is greater, for non compliance with the rules.

Presenter Sarah Power, associate solicitor in hlw Keeble Hawson’s litigation and dispute resolution team, said: “GDPR has the potential to impact on almost every type and size of business. It will radically alter the way personal data is stored and used, which for some organisations will mean a major overhaul of their data security policies.” Dominic Ryles, Business Development Manager at Exertis UK, who is co-presenting the session, added: “The clock is ticking and there are still some businesses who either aren’t aware of their obligations under the new legislation or don’t know how to address them.

“The workshop will give an overview of the implications and provide key insights on how to stay on the right side of the law.”

The session, the fourth in a series across recent weeks, will also include a Q and A with the panel of experts.

How To Provide Accommodation For A Disabled Family Member

By Michele Wightman, Partner and Head of the Private Client Department at hlw Keeble Hawson If you have disabled family members who rely on you for care or support, you might want to make provisions for them to be able to buy a new home after you’ve gone.

You can do this through Disabled and Vulnerable Beneficiary Trusts - which involve making special grants or trusts in your will – and which are designed to allow them to buy suitable accommodation in the event of your death.

The tips below provide all the essential information on the issues and caveats you must keep in mind while drafting the will to include disabled beneficiaries:

Definition of disability: For the purposes of trusts and wills, ‘disabled’ includes all physical disabilities, emotional and mental problems, those who require support in their day to day life and sufferers from some forms of long term brain or physical injuries. Please note that the trusts work for beneficiaries suffering some other vulnerability as well.

Benefits and welfare: If your disabled beneficiary receives any state welfare payments, the amount of money given may affect the amount of benefits they are entitled to via means testing.

Trusts: If a trust fund is set up to provide long term support, this will ensure that the assets are used to truly benefit the disabled or vulnerable person while ensuring that they do not lose their rights to means tested benefits. Forward planning: Informal agreements, such as with your family members and close friends, can be used to provide for disabled beneficiaries, but these can fall apart due to factors such as death, divorce or the financial troubles of the appointed guardian. This means it is best to plan in advance and ensure that a formal trust, agreement or specialist section in your will is created, making any agreements legally watertight.

hlw Keeble Hawson acts in sale of Sheffield heating solutions manufacturer Law firm hlw Keeble Hawson has acted for Sheffield-headquartered Independent Forgings & Alloys (IFA), one of the UK’s leading independent aerospace and industrial forgers, on its receipt of £8.5 million in capital investment from BGF to support its growth plans.

The funding will help fuel a number of investment initiatives designed to enhance IFA’s manufacturing and testing capabilities, delivering new commercial opportunities.

Operating from a 250,000 square foot facility in Sheffield, IFA manufactures high-integrity, open-die forged components for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and tier-one suppliers within the aerospace, nuclear, power generation, marine and oil and gas sectors. Using materials such as nickel alloy, titanium, stainless steel and carbon alloys, the company primarily forges rings and bars for use in a range of end applications, including aircraft aerostructures and engines, industrial gas turbines, offshore oil rigs, civil nuclear reactors, formula one motor racing and space satellites. CEO Andy McGuinness was part of the original team that acquired IFA in 2001 from Doncasters Group. Since then, the business has become firmly established as a major independent supplier in the global forging industry through continued investment in innovation, research and development, and people. McGuinness said: “Forging has a long history in Sheffield but rather than being in decline, the uses and applications of our open-die products continue to grow. The market offers attractive opportunities and, because of our focus on quality and innovation, we are well placed to capitalise on these opportunities.” “Since 2001, the business has grown steadily and remains in a strong position financially. Bringing on board BGF as a minority partner will allow us to accelerate the growth plans we have in place whilst maintaining control of company.” The investment was led for BGF by Barry Jackson and Rob Johnson. Jackson added: “IFA is a well-invested business with strong leadership, a skilled workforce and a clear strategy for growth. Having developed deep relationships with OEMs and tier-one suppliers, the business has an opportunity to continue to build scale, capabilities and capacity, and we are pleased to be supporting their plans to do so.” Michael Hall, a senior associate in hlw Keeble Hawson’s corporate team, said: “IFA has built an enviable reputation as a leading independent forger and BGF’s investment will be instrumental in enabling the business to harness the market’s wealth of potential. We wish Andy and the team continued success.” BGF’s legal adviser was CMS CMNO. Duff & Phelps acted as corporate finance adviser to IFA. Now exporting to more than 15 countries across Europe, Asia and North America, IFA generated sales of more than £20 million in its current financial year and employs more than 150 people.

Law firm offers support to skin condition charity

The Doncaster office of aw firm hlw Keeble Hawson has voted to adopt DEBRA, the national charity supporting those directly affected by, and working with, a potentially-fatal skin condition. It’s Epidermolysis Bullosa, a condition that causes constant pain due to unstoppable internal and external blistering.

It also provides much needed care and support to the EB Community including part funding specialist nursing support. hlw Keeble Hawson’s fundraising programme includes trainee solicitor Kate Large, tackling the Hull Inflatable 5k Obstacle Run at Beverley Racecourse in April along with a gruelling Tough Mudder challenge, raffles at events – and a monthly dress-down Friday. Sarah Burton, partner at hlw Keeble Hawson, said: “Our firm has a long-standing ethos of supporting wide-ranging organisations and our team voted to help this inspirational charity which supports people suffering from EB all over the UK and funds pioneering research worldwide.” DEBRA Business Development Manager, Jenny Jackson, said : “ We appreciate hlw Keeble Hawson’s creativity and commitment. Only with the generous support of businesses, employees and members of the public can we continue to help the EB Community. hlw Keeble Hawson’s support makes a real difference to people suffering from EB.” Money raised through hlw Keeble Hawson’s fundraising programme could help fund research into symptom alleviation and effective treatments for the condition, including clinical trials to investigate whether a drug called Rigosertib could be used to reduce or destroy cancer tumours caused by EB which have not responded to conventional treatments. Fundraising also supports projects which could make a real difference to the quality of life for people suffering from EB, including part funding specialist EB nursing care, purchasing specialist equipment or enabling people suffering from EB to enjoy a break away in one of DEBRA’s specially adapted holiday homes. hlw Keeble Hawson, which also has offices in Sheffield and Leeds, boosted local charities by almost £11,000 in fundraising and donations during 2017.

In sickness and in health …how chronic illness impacts on divorce and separation Chronic illness is a very common component in divorce – and can have a far reaching impact on issues relating to finance and children. Long terms conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, lupus, Motor Neurone Disease not only affect people physically but often mentally and can create tensions and difficulties. Those living with these illnesses may sometimes find their partner unsympathetic, unsupportive and impatient with the effects of their condition. In our experience, partners can also resent how long term health issues absorb their loved ones. If the relationship ends, and there are court proceedings about finances or children, how does the court deal with someone living with chronic illness? Those with long term health conditions are entitled to ask the court to consider their ability to work – it is part of the criteria that the court has to consider. Such a person may fare better than an able bodied person in terms of capital split as they do not have the ability to work and acquire pension rights. People with a limited life span may find that that this unpalatable issue is raised. There is no point splitting a pension if the other person is not going to live to enjoy it. When pensions are split, and the recipient of the split dies, pensions are lost to the family. In some cases, dependent children lose out on the financial support. However the terminally ill are still entitled to their fair split of the family assets to leave to children or family if they wish. I had one client who was in a home with very debilitating MS but met a new partner and had a very happy life with him once the assets were split – albeit for a fairly short time. Everyone is entitled to be happy if the court can manage it – even if the time is limited for them to enjoy life. Someone with serious long term issues is also entitled to ask the court to consider the care needs they will have once the marriage has ended. This can involve an occupational health report being compiled. If a house has been adapted for the person with the health issue, the court may feel it is important for them to keep it. However the needs of any children also have to be considered. These situations are very hard and need careful and thoughtful handling by the court – and by the solicitor representing each partner. They require difficult conversations in which unhappy outcomes need to be considered carefully so the importance of having the right representation cannot be understated.
