Description:

2014 has seen a number of new legislative changes that all employers need to know about, and some other issues that have become talking points in the press. We will cover:

  • The introduction of flexible working for all employees – are the days of the “9 to 5 Monday to Friday” workforce a thing of the past?
  • ACAS early conciliation and how it impacts on you – should you engage with the process?
  • Employer penalties in Employment Tribunals – what are the risks?
  • TUPE 2014: what you need to be aware of. What are the key issues now in relation to business acquisitions and service provision changes?
  • Zero hours contracts – behind the controversy, what are the issues and what legislative changes are likely?
  • Legislative changes on the horizon including shared parental leave.

Part 2 session 'Employment Law Update 2014 part 2: Top 20 cases' is on the 27/11/14.  Both sessions are essential for all as we look to bring the law to life in a practical and informative way, letting you know what you need to be aware of in managing your workforce. Can you afford to miss these sessions? Please book both sessions separately.
