At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

The tragic events which unfolded on Wednesday, 12th August in Carmount, Aberdeenshire following the derailment of a passenger train have left many questioning how safe Scotland’s railways are. The railway infrastructure is, in normal circumstances, relied upon by thousands of people across Scotland on a daily basis. The railways in Scotland have been regarded as one of the safest across Europe with the last death prior to this event occurring in 1994.

With the likelihood of the return to office working this side of 2021 becoming an ever dwindling prospect for many workers in the UK, it is worth taking a look at the rights of employees that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Given that most people have been working from home since at least 24 March 2020, (yes, it has been that long!) there have been a lot of Zoom quizzes, TikTok dance tutorials and home baking boomerangs that have really taken the eye off the ball for many employers when it comes to the rights of their employees.

We don’t just use the phrase ‘Talk to Thompsons’ we truly believe it is good to talk.  Which is why we have launched the Talk to Thompsons podcast and thank you for joining us in our discussion today.

Our work has made us all too aware of the pervasive nature of race discrimination in the workplace. In the last few years, we’ve supported workers who have been told to “go home” because of the colour of their skin; healthcare workers who’ve been suspended from work because patients refuse to be treated by black clinicians; workers with perfect English whose confidence is chipped away as they have their pronunciation corrected on a daily basis; and those who’ve been unfairly disciplined because a reasonable explanation is less likely to be believed if it’s delivered in a foreign accent.

We are now approaching five years from when the ‘story that won’t go away for the VW Group’ first broke and with the law in Scotland finally about to change, Scottish owners of affected vehicles, past and present, will now be able to seek compensation through the Courts as part of a group action.
