Description

DC Employment Solicitors is pleased to invite you to our FREE Employment Law Breakfast Briefing at 8am on Wednesday 1st May 2019 in the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton.

Worker? Employee? Or something else?

When a full-time funded Olympic cycling champion is found not to be an employee or worker, but a partner in a firm of accountants providing accountancy services to a brewery is found to be an employee of the brewery, and while a salaried partner in a firm of solicitor’s was not an employee but a PhD student is claiming she is a worker – where are the lines between employee and worker (or neither of them) drawn?

We’re very fortunate to be able to have David Reade QC, one of the country’s leading employment law silks, as guest speaker to explain all at our next breakfast seminar. These questions have become vital to businesses, to ensure they know what rights their workers have, after the ground-breaking status cases (Uber; Pimlico Plumbers, City Sprint Couriers, etc) over the past few years. David’s a very engaging speaker who has (among numerous high-profile employment cases) acted in a number of ‘status’ cases. Notably, he appeared recently for the former champion cyclist Jess Varnish against UK Sport and British Cycling. He’s described in the legal directories as being "vivacious, bold and brilliant" and "pleasingly straightforward”. If that’s not enough, he was Chambers and Partners Employment Silk of Year 2015, the Legal 500 Employment Silk of the Year 2016 and shortlisted for 2017.

There will also be an update on recent developments in employment law, including an important recent Court of Appeal decision on whether suspending an employee can give them unfair dismissal rights.

We hope that you can join us for an informative session, networking and bacon sandwiches!

Registration from 8am for 8.30am start. Finish at 9.30am.

Due to limited availability, please book early to avoid disappointment.

We look forward to seeing you.
