Our latest legal update considers the amendments recently proposed by the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”) to its Conduct Rules, to include non-financial misconduct such as bullying and harassment.

We look at issues including:

  • When behaviour will be considered work-related as opposed to something that is part of an employee’s personal or private life.
  • When behaviour will be considered serious enough to amount to a breach of rules.
  • The significance of intention rather than effect.
  • Related proposed changes to the Fit and Proper test.
