Join the Norfolk Chamber for an afternoon of accessing specialist knowledge essential for any HR Professional or business owner.

This session will be covering the topic of Mental Health in the Workplace. Mental health is still one of the most misunderstood health issues by employers in the modern workplace. It often leads to hesitancy and uncertainty about how to help, and concern about managing employees suffering from such conditions. Oliver Brabbins and Robert Hickford will guide you through the considerations you must make, and the steps you can take, to best protect your business and manage the health of your employees.

Your guest speakers are:

Oliver Brabbins
Following a successful career as an HR manager in both the public and private sector, Oliver trained as a barrister before converting to a solicitor, specialising in employment law. He is the head of the employment team at Steeles Law.
Oliver excels in providing pragmatic, solution-based advice in an industrial relations context. His background provides him with a rare understanding of the role of the HR manager and his advice is designed to assist clients to achieve their objectives, rather than frustrate them in their efforts to run a business.
Particularly highly regarded for his advocacy skills, Oliver represents clients at employment tribunals across the UK and the Employment Appeal Tribunal. As well as advocacy, Oliver has a special interest and expertise in advising on large scale reorganisations and redundancies, industrial relations and the TUPE Regulations.

Rob Hickford
Referred to in the 2017 Legal 500 as a ‘Rising Star’, Robert advises businesses ranging from multi-national corporations to local SME’s on all aspects of employment law, including advising on corporate restructures, TUPE consultations, and defending employment tribunal claims.
He also assists employers with immigration matters, including the process for sponsoring migrants to work in the UK.
Recent work highlights include:

  • Advising a major food industry client on the restructure and transfer of employees across a multi-site operation with added TUPE complications.
  • Defence of a multi-respondent multi-claimant TUPE claim arising out of liquidation and insolvency.
  • Advising on obtaining and maintaining Tier 2 Visa Sponsorship status for numerous national and international organisations.
  • Defending a national organisation from allegations of discrimination and whistleblowing.

Open to all businesses.
This event is sponsored and run by Steeles Law.
