Avoid employment law pitfalls with our 2017 seminar series

21 March 2017

We have just announced the dates of our latest series of seminars and workshops, designed to help businesses navigate the labyrinth of employment law in 2017.

From demystifying the General Data Protection Regulation through to advising professionals on how to retain their key staff, these seminars aim to help refresh knowledge and keep organisations up-to-speed with current employment law requirements.

The briefings, led by our expert employment lawyers, are aimed at directors, senior executives, HR managers and in-house legal advisors.

Matthew Clayton, partner and head of our employment law team, said:

“Regardless of the size of your business, if you employ staff, then it’s vital to keep up-to-date with the latest requirements in employment law.

“These seminars provide a refresher of the latest legal developments, helping you to avoid exposing your organisation to unnecessary risks. They’re a great networking opportunity, too, so you can share ideas and experiences with other local professionals.”

Our first breakfast seminar, on data protection, will take place on 28 March at the National Star College in Ullenwood, Cheltenham.

Commenting on this topic Matthew said:

“The General Data Protection Regulation is a new EU data protection law covering the processing of data by businesses from May 2018 onwards. Whilst we will be leaving the EU at some point, the UK will still need to have equivalent laws, so it is still very relevant. Our March breakfast briefing will explore what this new law means for UK businesses and their commercial and employee data. We look forward to seeing you there!”

Tickets are £15 per person for the breakfast briefing in March. To book or learn more about the seminar series, please visit our events page, call 01242 542916 or email events@willans.co.uk
