Upcoming events, webinars and training

  • Carrie - 'Hidden In Plain Sight' - Women as natural communicators

    Our gender network is named after Carrie Morrison, the first woman to be admitted as a solicitor in December 1922. The aim of Carrie is to bring together in-house lawyers in an interactive, stimulating environment, to provide practical guidance from accomplished speakers and to enable networking and sharing of experiences.
  • COVID-related case law update

    During the COVID-19 pandemic employers have found themselves having to negotiate uncharted waters, with new and seemingly constantly evolving employment and health and safety challenges to meet.
  • 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.
  • Employment and immigration - virtual round table

    We are delighted to invite you to a virtual round table event, focusing on three key immigration and employment issues at the top of employers' lists.
  • 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.
  • Eversheds Sutherland Pensions Conference

    Our annual pensions conference for 2021 is taking place virtually as an online interactive panel session, featuring:
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • In-house Counsel Legal Updates

    We are delighted to invite you to our autumn webinar series of In-house Counsel legal updates. We will again be running 20 minute updates with Q&A on a range of topics. We understand what it takes to be in-house. We know the pressures you are under and the issues you have to tackle on a daily basis. These free events are about giving you the knowledge, news and networking opportunities to help you in your roles. They have proved very popular in the past, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
  • 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.
  • Labor and employee relations - the law and best practice for maintaining constructive relations

    Many senior managers lack experience of working with unions and employee representatives. This course is designed to address this need in a virtual format, providing a chance to learn from specialist labour lawyers with extensive practical experience of dealing with industrial relations issues both in the public and private sector.
  • Pensions education sector annual conference 2021

    Following the success of our virtual 2020 pensions education sector conference, we welcome you to join us for our 2021 pensions education conference. As last year, this year's conference will be held virtually. Featuring a range of speakers from Eversheds Sutherland, Barnett Waddingham and the Universities and Colleges Employers Association, the conference will provide you with the knowledge to better understand pension issues in the sector.
  • 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.
  • 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.
