If you are a business owner, manager or HR professional, our upcoming Autumn Employment Seminar is for you.
As well as updating you on recent developments in the world of Employment Law, our interactive seminar will cover:
1. Spotting discrimination in the workplace
Brendan Donohue, Partner
Would you be able to identify discrimination in the workplace? Many employers think they can, but it isn’t always obvious. Ignorance is not a defence! Brendan will look at when allegations of discrimination commonly arise, and what you need to know and do in order to identify and deal appropriately.
We will also update you on Gender Pay Gap Reporting requirements. What do they mean for you (even if your business is not immediately caught by the regulations)? What is ‘pay’? What information will you have to publish? How can you limit the potential fall-out of publishing a report?
2. Use and abuse of personal data:
John Gomersall, Associate Solicitor & Data Protection Officer
Our very own Data Protection Officer gives the low-down on the vitally important area of data security. Answering questions such as:
- How should you store and use information about staff?
- To what extent can you make use of data for electronic marketing to potential and existing clients?
- Will Brexit affect the law?
John will also help you gear up for the new General Data Protection Regulations, including how to avoid breaching them and preventing your business being faced with costly fines! We will outline our own approach and share our thoughts on what businesses should be considering ahead of this piece of European legislation coming into force.
3. 'It's not me, it's you': Ending the relationship
Julia Beasley, Partner and Head of Employment
You’ve lost faith in an employee who is under performing and isn’t likely to improve. Can you do anything about it? Is it possible to have a frank conversation without getting stuck in a legal muddle and making things worse?
Our advice is yes! Julia’s talk will equip you to confidently broach this difficult subject safely; covering how to stay ‘off the record’; the differences between ‘without prejudice’ and ‘protected’ conversations; and what you can say – as well as what should never be mentioned.
4. Winning in the Employment Tribunal
Guest Speaker: Spencer Keen, Old Square Chambers
What goes on inside the Judge’s head? How are decisions reached? Can you improve the odds if you end up having to defend a case in the Employment Tribunal? Our guest speaker, renowned barrister Spencer Keen, will give you an insider’s guide based on his extensive experience.
He will share the secrets of how to avoid typical errors that employers make.
By gaining a better understanding of Tribunal procedure and decisions, you will be able to identify the areas in your HR practice that might need improvement.
