The Government recently announced plans for sweeping changes to employment law in a bid to reduce regulation and stimulate growth. But what do the changes mean in practice for employers?
The proposals and their implications will be explored in a series of three employment law workshops presented by leading south east law firm, Furley Page.
The workshops, run in partnership with Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce, will be held in February and March and are open to Chamber members and non-members whatever the size of their workforce.
Leading the interactive workshops will be Andrew Masters, Partner and Head of Employment at Furley Page. “These workshops are essential to help employers and HR professionals keep up to date with the ever-changing complexities of employment law,” says Andrew.
“As well as practical guidance, there will be question and answer sessions so there’s plenty of opportunity for delegates to raise issues of concern.”
Andrew will be joined by Amanda Okill, a Senior Solicitor who specialises in employment law.
The workshops are to be held at a new venue for 2012, the Mercure Hotel, Hollingbourne, Maidstone (previously the Ramada/Great Danes), starting at 8am and finishing at noon. They are:
Employment Law Update for 2012 (Thursday 23 February) – to include proposed and recent changes to employment law, latest reforms and implementation of European Directives as well as updates to pension auto-enrolment plans.
Investigating Discipline and Grievances in the Workplace (Thursday 8 March) – providing everything from practical guidance on how to prevent unnecessary and costly disputes, to latest changes in unfair dismissal law.
Managing Sickness Absence (Thursday 22 March) – including the increasing importance of disability discrimination law and how best to avoid potential claims.
Workshops cost £35 to Kent Invicta Chamber members and £45 to non-members.
