HR legal update

HR legal update

Who should attend

This HR legal update training is aimed at HR professionals and in-house lawyers responsible for employment policy and organisational strategy.

Synopsis

We have not had a strong majority Government since 2005. Now, employment reforms and new legislation will be brought into force. The Queen’s Speech reflected the new Government’s predictable manifesto commitments to raise minimum wages, protect gig workers, extend family-friendly and flexible working and introduce a new immigration system.

This update covers IR35, Good Work Plan measures, pre-election consultations and key case-law developments. We also consider the scope for divergence from EU employment regulation.
