Norfolk Chamber HR Forums are designed to inform and keep your business up-to-date with all the changes to employment law. 

Our expert sponsors will provide you with an afternoon of in-depth knowledge essential to any business. Our upcoming HR Forum, sponsored and delivered by Howes Percival, will focus on pay discrimination in the work place. 

Employers will soon be required to publish a report setting out the gender pay gap within their organisation. A concern for employers is the risk that this will lead to an increase in employees pursuing claims for sex discrimination and equal pay.

This HR Forum will help you understand the law surrounding equal pay issues and the reporting requirements, including defences to equal pay claims, dealing with back pay and pay protection and handling an equal pay grievance. In addition, Howes Percival will review forthcoming legal reforms and recent case law decisions and identify how these developments will impact on local businesses. 

Sponsored and delivered by Howes Percival.
