Employment Law Update - Autumn 2022
Join us to hear from our legal experts about key employment law decisions from the last six months and how these might impact on your practices, as well as important forthcoming legislative and Government policy developments that are relevant to HR. We’re running a series of regional face-to-face events, as well as a webinar for those who would prefer to attend remotely.
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 recent court decisions exploring issues, including:
- whether a trade union can prevent an employer from ‘firing and rehiring’ employees in order to implement changes to terms and conditions;
- when an employee’s conduct while ‘blowing the whistle’ can be distinguished from the protected disclosures themselves as a reason for dismissal; and
- whether dismissal of a disabled employee following a period of sickness absence amounted to discrimination.
The face-to-face sessions will include an interactive case study considering how to support trans employees at work and how to address potential workplace conflicts that might arise between employees with different protected characteristics. (Note that this case study will not be included in the online webinar session.)
We will then share insights on key legislative and policy developments, including:
- what plans the new Prime Minister might have in store;
- will the Employment Bill make a comeback;
- recruiting from overseas;
- pay settlements and industrial action;
- neonatal care leave;
- proposed reforms to data protection law.
The events will conclude with a Q&A session for you to ask questions of our expert speakers.
Who should attendThese events are suitable for HR professionals and senior line managers.
