Upcoming events, webinars and training

  • Belgian employment law training

    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.
  • Central and Eastern European employment law short courses - (Poland, Czech Republic & Slovakia, Russia, Hungary, Romania)

    These 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. You can choose during the booking process to attend the jurisdictions that are relevant to you and your organisation.
  • Dutch employment law training

    Employee rights are well protected under Dutch law, especially in dismissal cases, but employers are able to swiftly adjust staff levels in their company due to changes in, for example a fluctuation in workload. A wide variety of options are available for employers to hire people in a flexible manner provided that the rules are used properly.
  • European HR - managing multi-jurisdictional projects

    Managing teams of people is challenging at the best of times. Working across European borders in multiple jurisdictions is even more difficult due to cultural and legal differences. Heavily regulated employment law regimes that differ significantly in their approach can also pose additional challenges, particularly in light of the COVID-19 crisis and the severe impact it is having on economies across the globe.
  • French employment law training

    Based on the Napoleonic code and amended by statute ever since, French employment law is markedly different from the UK’s.
  • German employment law training

    Germany is a major trading partner for many countries throughout the world, not to mention the most important single market in the European Union.
  • Germany - working with the works council

    It is a widespread belief among HR experts of multinational companies that it is extremely difficult to operate in Germany; some foreign companies may even refrain from setting-up a well-staffed business presence on the German market because they believe that endless negotiations with employee representatives are unavoidable.
  • Immigration UK - Business travellers: masterclass for HR practitioners

    This course addresses the issue of business travel post-Brexit and how the end of the post-Brexit transition period has changed this.
  • Immigration UK - Right-to-work in 2022

    The adjustments made by organisations to immigration compliance processes following the end of the Brexit transition period and adjusted right-to-work requirements in 2021 continue to require careful consideration and review.
  • Immigration UK - Sponsor licencing modules

    Free movement of EEA and Swiss citizens ended on 31 December 2020. In anticipation of this, a new Statement of Changes to the Immigration Rules took effect from 1 December. These are fundamental changes of which HR teams need to be aware since they impact on immigration compliance processes.
  • Introduction to US employment law

    The United States is a complex marketplace and employment rules vary significantly across the states. Our training course is led by a US lawyer with over 30 years’ experience advising companies ranging from large multinationals to small start-up enterprises.
  • Ireland & Northern Ireland employment law - key differences with Great Britain

    The Irish and UK legal systems have many similarities. However in an employment law context those similarities can be deceptive. In addition, the fact that employment law in Northern Ireland is a devolved matter means that there are, in reality, three different employment law jurisdictions across the UK and Ireland, namely Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Ireland.
  • Nordic (Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden) employment law training

    This Nordic employment training course covers, in turn, an introduction to the employment law systems of Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway. We will also share the experience we have gained in assisting clients with their operations in the Nordic region, and provide comparisons and contrasts with the UK.
  • PMI Award in Pension Trusteeship training course

    The Pensions Management Institute’s Award in Pension Trusteeship (PMI APT), also known as Unit 1 of the Level 3 Certificate in Pension Trusteeship, is a longstanding industry qualification. Anyone wanting to become accredited as a professional trustee via either the PMI or the Association of Professional Pension Trustees route must now pass the PMI APT exam. Accreditation is fast becoming the norm.
  • Spanish employment law training

    Spanish and UK labour systems differ greatly. Spanish employment law is mainly based on the regulations contained in the Collective Bargaining Agreement in force in the market sector. Sometimes a specific CBA can be negotiated for one company with the trade unions and employee representatives.
  • Swiss employment law training

    Switzerland is chosen by many multinational companies as a base for their European or global cross-border business activities, largely because of its advantageous investment climate. Swiss employment law is known as being more liberal than other adjacent jurisdictions. While the fundamental principle of contractual freedom is predominant, it is still important to understand the statutory minimal standard and the social protection mechanisms provided by Swiss law.
  • TUPE across Europe: staff transfers in multiple jurisdictions

    Under the European Acquired Rights Directive, employees sometimes transfer automatically from one employer to another on their existing terms and with continuous service. It is tempting to think that the rules that apply will be the same across Europe but because Member States implement their legislation differently, this is far from true. This assumption can have costly consequences for businesses.
  • UK employment law training

    The United Kingdom (UK) comprises the whole of the island of Great Britain (GB) - containing England, Wales and Scotland - plus Northern Ireland. However, technically, “UK employment law” is a misnomer.
  • Webinar - Company law refresher for education institutions

    We will provide a refresher on the administration of companies from a company law perspective.
