Upcoming events, webinars and training

  • 15th Annual Labour Relations Conference - beyond Brexit together apart?

    When a group of people act together the more powerful have to listen. The TUC is right about this*. They are also right that some of the UK’s leading companies have vital union relationships, that the union movement is getting smaller and that members and activists are getting older. But isn’t an internal WhatsApp group a form of ‘union’? What about an online petition, a Facebook page or a letter to The Times with multiple signatures?
  • 9th Annual Comparative International Employment Law Seminar

    The past 12 months have seen seismic change in workplace equality driven by a combination of scandal, legislative initiatives and shifts in attitude towards, heightened awareness and historic behavioural norms.
  • Adjustments - What is reasonable?

    When a disabled job applicant or employee is ‘substantially’ disadvantaged, the employer has a duty to make reasonable adjustments. The difficulty is that what is ‘reasonable’ depends upon the circumstances of each case, and upon the size and resources of the employer. In addition, line-managers are frequently asked to consider a range of individual requests for flexibility which may appear to amount to ‘special treatment’.
  • Advanced employee investigation interview skills and tactics

    In recognition of the rising expectations judges have of an employer's investigation process and documentation, and the ever increasing complexity of some employee investigations, more and more organisations are recognising that the conduct of investigations is a specialist role, and developing in-house teams of dedicated management investigators.
  • Austrian employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    Although there are similarities, it is dangerous to consider the German and Austrian employment law systems to be one and the same. Austrian law is distinct in many ways, most importantly in relation to probationary periods, the termination of employment contracts and severance. There are also sufficient differences in contract law to make the use of one model employment contract, for German and Austrian employees, a potentially expensive error for employers.
  • Belgian employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    An employer found guilty of discrimination by a Belgian court can face a sentence of up to one year in prison. There is no concept of redundancy in Belgium and no concept of unfair dismissal either.
  • Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management

    This Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management training course is relevant to HR and recruitment professionals from Tier 2 and 5 sponsors (including potential sponsors) who use the sponsor management system or have responsibility for a sponsor licence. Knowledge of the points-based system is assumed.
  • Central and Eastern European HR: employment law in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia and Slovakia

    The Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries have distinctive employment law frameworks which an increasing number of HR practitioners and inhouse lawyers must come to terms with.
  • Contracts - common pitfalls and how to avoid them

    Contracts go wrong all the time. Parties will fight for their rights and the fall-out can be costly and a drain on management time. Getting your contracts right from the beginning may help stop disputes arising in the first place. You will also be better placed to keep contractual relationships on track if difficult issues arise or the other party wishes to re-negotiate.
  • Crisis, HR and PR

    High profile cases of sexual harassment have taught us nothing new about the law. Reputable organisations, with sophisticated HR awareness, were embarrassed by behaviours that were obviously wrong and then humiliated as the story unfolded. In each case there were rumours … and yet!
