With a dynamic programme of presentations, industry updates and guest speakers, the high profile Annual Employment Law Conference equips delegates with the essential information, know-how and skills to deal with the demands of 21st century employment law and personnel management in the company of fellow professionals.
Since the conference’s inception in 2007 it has grown significantly both in reputation and size and is now the largest event of its kind in the North-east.
The 2019 programme will see expert speakers provide updates and insights on a range of topical issues. Keynote speaker Caspar Glyn QC, of Cloisters Chambers, is one of the top 10 highly most regarded employment silks. Described as a “scintillatingly good QC with a razor sharp brain”, an “intellectual heavyweight” and “fiendishly brilliant” – whatever your stance, there is no doubt he has been at the forefront of employment status, holiday pay, working time and minimum wage cases in recent years, carrying a busy caseload across the UK from employment tribunals to the Supreme Court.
Delegates will also get the chance to take part in a hands-on interactive session where they will receive support from a facilitator allocated to their table. The purpose of this session is to explore the practical and legal challenges that can arise as organisations try to comply with equality law in challenging times and circumstances. This interactive session will look at recent and proposed developments in case law and legislation and its impact including in relation to gender and ethnicity pay gap reporting, sexual harassment, non-disclosure agreements and family leave. Delegates will be navigated through some of the problem areas that they may encounter in the workplace when trying to be inclusive of a diverse workforce including dealing with competing characteristics and the practical issues which can arise when organisations try to engage a cultural shift.
A comprehensive delegate pack including detailed notes is also provided.
