Retail Line – February 2015

Welcome to the February edition of Retail Line.

As we go to press the Groceries Code Adjudicator has announced her first investigation into a possible breach of the Groceries Supply Code of Practice. This is a significant step that will be watched closely by everyone involved in the groceries supply chain and we will report on developments in future editions of Retail Line.

In this edition of Retail Line our experts look at some of the employment issues that retail employers will be considering; we also advise on the options available to businesses if they have suffered damage as a result of retail crime, and how they can review their risk assessments to avoid becoming victims.
