Event description

Description

It has been a tumultuous few months in the land of employment law, with a number of high-profile blunders and significant decisions made that will impact the way all businesses operate.

Our next seminar will aim to prepare you for what’s on the horizon, including a substantial increase in the risk of tribunal claims following the decision made by the Supreme Court that the current fee structure is unlawful.

While the introduction of fees in 2013 had the immediate effect of reducing claims significantly, we now expect a bounce in claims, potentially even extending to ‘out of time’ claims brought by employees who have been unable to do so because of inadequate funds.

The team will also cover the very recent and very high-profile scandal concerning discrepancies between male and female salaries published in the BBC’s annual report, and what employers can learn from this in terms of reputation management as the Gender Pay Regulations oblige more employers to lay bare details of their pay and bonuses over the coming months. The team will also clear up some of the confusion around whether differences in pay amount to sex discrimination.

We will also be assessing the impact of the government’s Taylor Review, or “Good Work” report, on Britain’s modern day gig economy. Set up by the government nine months ago, the review aims to make work fairer and of a higher quality, changing the balance of power between businesses and workers. The team will then consider the nuts and bolts of one of their recent cases involving constructive dismissal and age discrimination in their HR Hotspot.

About the Series

We understand that employment law is a rapidly-changing area and it can, therefore, be difficult to keep up with all the new legislation affecting you and your employees.

Our employment law update seminars are aimed at HR professionals, business owners and anyone responsible for on-the-ground management. Delivered by our expert employment law team, our quarterly breakfast seminars are free to attend and offer you the opportunity to get clear, practical advice on all the latest changes and network with likeminded professionals.
