The Supreme Court has decided that the Employment Tribunal fees regime is unlawful and fees will no longer be payable for bringing any employment tribunal claims. This is likely to have an impact on the tech industry and gig economy platforms, where an increase in the number of challenges to employment status, and related rights such as holiday and sick pay, should be expected now that there is one less hurdle in the way of seeking to pursue such a claim. It will be particularly important for these tech companies to review their business practices, including how individuals are engaged, to seek to stay on the right side of law and to minimise the risk of potentially expensive legal challenges

PSD2 presents a huge opportunity for new payment providers and intermediaries by opening up the market to competition and many firms will be investing in their business models to take advantage. Whilst the UK remains part of the EU, it is required to implement PSD2 on 13 January 2018 and it is preparing to do so. Beyond Brexit, these firms can take comfort that the UK is already a frontrunner and supporter for many of the policy objectives behind PSD2, such as the Competition and Market Authority's Open Banking Initiative that will allow third party access to banking data. As such, a reversal of PSD2 looks unlikely.
