Current developments in employment law

Who should attend

This course is aimed at experienced HR professionals and in-house lawyers. It is assumed that delegates have a working knowledge of employment law.


Join our experienced employment lawyers online for this topical and practical update. Harassment at work has not only been the subject of legal reforms but has also attracted significant public focus. We will highlight the latest developments and legal position but also important practical implications, risks and appropriate steps for employers, including whether the use of non-disclosure terms remains an appropriate option.

After a long time without any significant new employment law developments (other than the various changes during the pandemic) we will update you on new family friendly rights due to be introduced shortly, which are likely to require employers to change their policies but also to rethink how they might prioritise flexible working requests, time off for caring responsibilities and future redundancy selections.

Artificial intelligence can be a useful tool, but is it going to take the “human” out of human resources? What safeguards should employers be putting in place? How is it already influencing employment litigation? We will discuss balancing efficiency and legal compliance.

We also cover the latest case law developments in terms of the significant court decisions, and we will take a look ahead at other legislative developments (including to paid holiday and to non-competes), each of which will shape working practices in the months to come.
