Following the decision by the UK to Brexit from the EU, James Humphery and Kathryn Casey-Evans from Trethowan's Solicitors will take those attending through the potential outcomes as these are likely to effect employers/employees, and what HR can do to build business resilience legally into the workforce.
Employment law cases currently going through the Courts will be covered, together with their impact and outcomes. These include:
- Brexit, including importing workers from the EU
- Gender Pay
- Religious discrimination and clothing
- Employment and the Workplace in 2020
In addition, James and Kathryn will provide a casework scenario for participants to discuss in groups and identify how they would take it forward.
