Session Content

This masterclass will take a look at some of the key areas that will affect employers in the final days of the run up to Brexit and beyond, including whether there will be any immediate changes to employment law, what changes might happen during the transition period and beyond, and how employers should prepare for the next few years.

We will also take a broader look at the employment law horizon, including the Good Work review, and the key employment law cases for employers to be aware of as the year progresses.

• Employment law changes as a result of Brexit.

• The Good Work Review and how it will affect UK employment law

• The key cases you should be aware of as an employer

A seminar formatted presentation, including opportunities for interactive discussion and question and answers. The first half of the session will look at Brexit and the implications and the second half of the session will look at the Good Work review and notable case law.

What are the benefits to my business?

Keeping up to date with changes in employment law is crucial for any business, large or small. Changes that might follow Brexit will need to be implemented at appropriate times, and case law constantly develops existing principles of employment law. Most recently, case law on the employment status of individuals has developed at a very quick pace. By attending this masterclass you will be kept up to date with the developments that will affect your business, and have the opportunity to raise questions on key topics.

• Owner / managers of businesses
