Employment law update

The legal landscape and how it affects your business, or workplace, is constantly evolving.

This event will bring you up to date on recent changes in legislation and highlight what’s planned for the future; a key consideration for business planning.

Our experienced trainers will explain the changes in a practical and straightforward way which will help you understand the legal changes and, importantly, the impact for your organisation.

Business need
Employment law can be a complex area of legislation and is regularly changing and modified. Legislation can be introduced, amended or repealed and when consultations and case law are added, it can be a challenge for those running a business or involved in managing employees.

Keeping abreast of issues helps you steer your business away from litigation and potential financial penalties. By gaining an understanding of the ever changing legal requirements, you can develop strategies that will improve employee engagement, reduce risk and increase organisational resilience.

This event, which is updated regularly, gives you a solid grounding on recent changes to legislation and provides insight into upcoming changes in the law that will enable your business to stay informed, legally compliant and well prepared.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.

Suitable for delegates from all sectors of industry including:
• HR specialists
• Employment relations specialists
• Employee representatives
• MDs/CEOs
• Owners of small and medium sized businesses
