Haribolicious ,

Excellent!

So refreshing to find a succinct employment law podcast that is still very informative and interesting. Daniel keeps to the point and covers the topic in a short and sweet way! Some podcasts in this area can be very dry & long but not this. Keep them coming please 🙏

Marta Yatsenko ,

Explains how employment law works

Excellent podcast, I am listening to it while driving. Fantastic source of knowledge. I topped it up with Employment Law Handbook and extra other shorter publications from employment law library. It would be excellent to hear more about employment cases related to recrutiment process. Where during recrutiment process employers need to be particularly careful? Is asking for the copy of passport before interview legal? I came across a couple of similar request during last year and I do not know the answer.

My go to guy on Employment Law

Daniel is my go to guy on Employment Law matters via on this podcast, his newsletter and his YouTube channel. He gives you everything you need to know on a topic ie legal principles, case law and interpreting and general advice on practical application. 5 Star from me. Keep up the fantastic work Daniel! You are literally a life saver for some Employees who have no Lawyer to give basic advice.
