Employment Law Update 2022
About the event
Our legal experts will explain:
- key employment law decisions from the last six months and how these might impact on your practices; and
- important legislative and Government policy developments that are relevant to HR.
In our case law update, we will consider four recent court decisions exploring:
- whether dismissal for bringing numerous vexatious and frivolous grievances can be fair;
- when an employer might be found vicariously liable for injury suffered by a contractor at its premises as a result of an employee’s practical joke;
- whether a trade union can prevent an employer from ‘firing and rehiring’ employees in order to implement changes to terms and conditions; and
- when employees can claim payment in lieu of previous years’ untaken or unpaid holiday on termination of employment.
We will also provide a roundup of a few recent Employment Tribunal decisions dealing with issues arising out of the Covid-19 pandemic, such as whether a fear of catching Covid-19 amounts to a protected philosophical belief and whether dismissing an employee who refuses to be vaccinated can be fair.
We will then share insights on key legislative and policy developments, including:
- an HR-focused update on issues arising from Covid-19;
- gender pay gap reporting;
- flexible working; and
- the Employment Bill.
The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session for you to ask questions of our expert speakers.
Who should attendThis workshop is suitable for HR professionals, senior line managers and others who manage employees with health conditions, as well as those who are involved in employee wellbeing programmes.
