Employment update: Tuesday 11 March 2014

Our popular annual employment update breakfast is taking place from 7.45am on Tuesday 11 March 2014, at Barnham Broom Hotel (Honingham Road, Barnham Broom, Norwich NR9 4DD).

The update will cover essential recent and forthcoming developments in employment law, including the following topics:

• TUPE – revised TUPE Regulations are in force from 31 January 2014.  We will provide an overview of the key changes and how this will impact on businesses.

• Employment tribunals – the introduction of a new power for tribunals to impose a financial penalty on employers and mandatory pre-claim conciliation via Acas, both introduced from 6 April 2014.

• Equality changes – we will look at various recent and forthcoming amendments to the Equality Act 2010, including the abolition of statutory discrimination questionnaires.

• Flexible working – the extension of the right to request flexible working to all employees, which is now due to take place in Autumn 2014.

• Redundancy – the rules relating to collective consultation have been thrown into doubt following the EAT decision in the “Woolworths” case; we will consider the latest position and other recent developments.

• Parental leave – a look ahead at the latest plans for shared parental leave to replace the existing system of maternity and paternity leave.

Plus a look at other recent noteworthy caselaw developments.

The update will be delivered by qualified and experienced lawyers who specialise exclusively in employment law, with the emphasis on the practical implications of the law for your business.  Delegates find these briefings a fantastic opportunity to keep up-to-date with the latest legal developments:

“An excellent update, a ‘must’ attend for the HR professional.  Very good value for money!” (previous delegate)
