Annual Review of Employment Law 2019 - Titanic Belfast

Annual Review of Employment Law 2019 - Titanic Belfast

This conference will be repeated on Tuesday 19th November 2019 at Crowne Plaza Hotel, Shaw's Bridge, Belfast.

Have you ever wondered what Legal Island's Annual Review of Employment Law conference is all about? Here's a little taster in just 2 minutes and 40 seconds:

It’s 21 years since Legal Island was formed to help HR and employment law practitioners stay informed with new employment law changes affecting the workplace. 2019 has proved no different to any other year and Legal Island will provide you with all the changes you need to know about in 2019/2020, such as:

  • Back pay for mis-calculated holiday pay may go back to 1998 at an estimated cost of £400m to NI employers
  • New landmark case law in areas as diverse as restrictive covenants and vicarious liability for employee actions
  • A massive growth in Diversity & Inclusion in the workplace as a retention tool
  • 'Vento' injury to feelings compensation bands increase, along with an explosion of sex discrimination claims linked to #MeToo, Non-Disclosure Agreements and NI largest Equal Pay award
  • Artificial Intelligence becomes a mainstream tool for many HR departments

Let us save you and your organisation time, money and stress by providing you with detailed updates on the Northern Ireland, GB and European employment law developments you need to know. Get up-to-date with all of the new employment legislation affecting Northern Ireland workplaces in 2019/2020 by attending the Annual Review of Employment Law conference later this year.

How we can help you
Our experts give you the latest information, practical tips and effective solutions to make your life easier and prepare your organisation for the year ahead. After attending you will better be able to:

  • Minimise your organisation’s risk of litigation.
  • Understand how the relevant new cases from the UK and Europe impact on your workplace.
  • Prepare for the year ahead.
  • Update your policies with the useful templates and precedent wording for key areas in your organisation – sent to you by email after the event.
