Who said lawyers can't be funny? If you haven't seen the lawyer who's not a cat, it'll cheer you up. If you have, it's worth another look on a bleak February day. 

This week's other top 'I'm not a cat' stories:

  • In Case Reviews this week, Jason Elliott BL discusses an EAT decision that found that diversity and equality training held only two years previously was stale and could not help an employer mount a 'reasonable steps' defence in a racial harassment case.

  • We have a free webinar with Kevin Empey of WorkMatters on the 18th February
