Lawyer Monthly November 2019 Edition
Edited by Jaya Harrar
From the Editor...
Welcome to the November 2019 Edition of Lawyer Monthly!
Last month we saw the unfortunate collapse of the much-loved Thomas Cook. Thousands of people who had devoted their professional career to the travel company lost their jobs, throwing them into a situation they did not predict: unemployment.
With the high street struggling and slowly falling apart due to the rise of e-commerce, we decided to address what rights employees have when the company they work for collapses and heads for insolvency.
We are much aware of all things Brexit here at Lawyer Monthly’s HQ, but we know how you have probably read enough about it; instead, we decided to touch on blockchain and GDPR, as well as the changing regulatory landscape surrounding cryptocurrencies.
Aside from this, we speak about sexual harrassment in the workplace during the #metoo era, and what companies should be aware of when applying for a US work visa for international employees. We hope you enjoy all the content in this month’s edition!Jaya Harrar - Lawyer Monthly Editor
