HR legal update

HR legal update

Who should attend

This HR legal update training is aimed at HR professionals and in-house lawyers with a specialist interest in employment law.

Synopsis

Two Supreme Court cases, covering employer responsibility for employee data breaches and whistleblowing, raise really challenging issues for HR. Ethnicity pay reporting will be an even bigger challenge to employers than gender pay.

A new sexual harassment code of practice, further protections for new mums, IR35 responsibilities, restricted use of NDAs and proposed new rights for casual workers also need to be worked through. It has been a quiet time for new employment law for a while, but all seems set to change from this Autumn.
