A series of free seminars is being held by a law firm in Shropshire to give business owners and HR professionals an update on the latest changes in employment law.
Legal experts at Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors will be highlighting changes in legislation and case law that have taken place since their spring seminars or which are on the horizon, including in relation to zero-hours contracts, working time, holiday entitlement and collective consultation.
The events will take place at The Wynnstay Hotel in Oswestry on September 29, Shrewsbury Town Football Club on September 30, NFU Agricultural House in Telford on October 6, and Three Counties Hotel in Hereford on October 7.
Each event will start at 12.30pm with a lunch, and 10-minute individual appointments, to follow the update presentation, can also be booked in advance with the employment team.
John Merry, head of employment law at Lanyon Bowdler, said he expected the seminars to be very popular.
“Employment law is constantly evolving, and it’s essential that business owners and those working in HR stay up to date,” he said.
“We run employment seminars twice a year, and these sessions follow on from our spring seminars which were very well attended.
“There have been a number of very important recent developments in employment law, not least in relation to what constitutes ‘working time’ for the many workers – often salesmen or carers – who don’t have a normal place of work and perform their duties at the premises or homes of customers or clients; and in relation to holiday entitlement.
“The seminars are a fantastic opportunity for employers to hear about these changes and how they might affect their business.
“Places are free to employers but are reserved on a first come, first served basis, so we recommend that people book as soon as possible.”
