Announcing 2015 employment law seminar dates and topics

05 February 2015

We have a new series of employment law breakfast briefings which will help employers keep up-to-speed on developments in this rapidly changing environment.

Building on the success of previous years’ talks, the hour-long employment law ‘to go’ breakfast seminars provide short and snappy overviews of current issues and changes in employment law, for professionals with responsibility for HR.

Presented by our employment partner Matthew Clayton, these briefings will be of interest to CEOs and directors, HR managers and advisors, and in-house legal advisors.

Matthew leads the 4-person employment team at Willans and has 18 years’ experience in handling a full range of employment law issues for multi-national companies, owner-managed businesses and not-for-profit organisations. He is recommended by independent national legal directories, one of which says “he is responsive, commercial, understands where employers are coming from and gets right to the point, with meaningful and practical advice.”

The majority of the talks will be held at National Star college in Ullenwood, Cheltenham, from 7.30am until 9am and breakfast is provided. The new topics and dates are:

  • 17 March 2015: Social media and HR – the legal issues
  • 14 May 2015: Disciplinary processes – FAQs
  • 22 September 2015:  ‘Ask the expert’ – put your questions to the speakers
  • 19 (Gloucester venue) and 26 November 2015: Employment law changes this year and next

Matthew Clayton said:

“We’ve handpicked the seminars based on hot topics and areas of confusion in the law as well as feedback received from previous briefings. Not only do these seminars help by refreshing knowledge and keeping up-to-speed with employment law changes, they also provide businesses with an excellent networking opportunity to share ideas and experiences with professional colleagues.

“We hope you can join us for these early morning sessions which are run out of hours to avoid interfering with delegates’ busy working days.”
