In recent times we’ve seen many proposed changes and reforms to employment law. When the Government publishes the results of its most recent consultations on NDAs, ethnicity pay gap reporting, and redundancy during pregnancy and maternity, and issues the Statutory Code of Practice on Sexual Harassment, HR will have a very busy time of it.
There’s also important amendments to employment status looming, including changes to the period of time that will break continuity, affecting all organisations that employ casual and temporary staff.
Run by leading employment law experts, Cas Carrington and John Fenton, our Law On Tour workshops offer unmissable guidance and insights to put legislative updates and complexities in context… and avoid costly slip-ups for your organisation.
