We will cover:
• Gender Pay & Modern Slavery Act reporting – what your business should be doing now and why;
• Social Media - how to deal with reputational risks and misconduct e.g. Brexit bullying and how far your business can lawfully go in monitoring staff and their communications; and
• Shared Parental Leave & Pay – how to manage the challenges of the new flexible regime in a way that addresses the needs of both the parent and your business.
