Current developments in employment law

Who should attend

This course is aimed at experienced HR professionals and in-house lawyers. It is assumed that delegates have a working knowledge of employment law.

Synopsis

Join our experienced employment lawyers online for an update on mental health at work, including practical strategies for supporting employees. Stress, depression or anxiety accounted for around a half of all cases of self-reported work-related ill health in 2021/22 and has been increasing in recent years – a trend which may continue given current cost of living pressures.

Economic conditions and a focus on senior performance are leading to increased senior and Board level moves. Particular risk for executive departures lies in underestimating financial exposure and inadequate consideration of timing issues. In this session we will consider some of the primary tripping hazards for employers.

As immigration policy continues to evolve, we review the latest Government announcements, provide an update on work routes, including the skilled worker route, and consider recent changes to right to work checks.

We also cover the latest employment law developments in terms of the legislative changes proposed and significant court decisions, each of which will shape working practices in the months to come.
