Employment law changes on the horizon

Headshot of Sue King

Sue King, Partner at Wrigleys Solicitors

Sue will analyse the most important employment law changes for 2019 and beyond, to help employers prioritise the key HR and employment issues. The impact of Brexit, the gig economy, a focus on sexual harassment and transgender issues in the workplace are concerns which have led to a flurry of government consultations and proposals which Sue will unpick to see how they might to impact on day-to-day life in the workplace. These issues, together with a number of proposed fundamental changes in employment law around the rights of employees and workers, mean there are changes on the horizon which employers need to plan for in their middle-to-long term strategies.

Take-home points:
  • Get the lowdown on recent changes to the law which all employers need to be aware of.
  • Be clear about the most important HR and employment issues which you should be focusing on.
  • Clarify your HR priorities and feed these into your strategic planning processes.
This session is for:
Senior staff with responsibility for HR within their organisations.
