Virtual Employment Law Seminar
25 March 2020
Due to recent events in relation to coronavirus, we presented our Employment Law Seminar virtually this year. You can watch the webinar recording to find out about recent and forthcoming changes to UK Employment Law. Throughout the session we aimed to make it interactive through audience participation in questions and answers and polls. In this online seminar we discussed all current and future employment law topics including:
- Current Issues – Coronavirus, IR35, Jack’s Law, Good Work Plan
- Upcoming Employment Legislation
- Interesting Cases.
IR35: Overview and HR Implications
With the changes to IR35 extending to the private sector in April 2020, we discuss the implications of these changes, as well as how to review your exposure to these changes. In addition, we discuss strategies as to how to retain the access to the skilled contractors that you have been used to engaging.

VE Day and Tips on Bank Holiday Entitlement
Only in 2020, the 75th anniversary of VE Day (Victory in Europe Day) will become a bank holiday instead of the usual early May bank holiday. This will enable as many people as possible to take time to celebrate the end of World War Two and to honour and remember the many heroes and sacrifices that were made. This means that Friday 8th May will be the early bank holiday in 2020, not Monday 4th May. Confusion is likely to arise in organisations who normally close on bank holidays but choose to remain open on the Friday, and for those who have part-time staff affected by Fridays and Mondays. Do you pay it? Should they work it? Should they get time back?
What’s New for HR in 2020
Changes are afoot in 2020! If you have heard about the Matthew Taylor Good Work Plan, you may remember that in July 2017 the government published The Independent Review of Employment Practices in the Modern Economy (The Taylor Review). It recommended better clarification around employment status and greater protection for workers. As a result, new laws which were dubbed the “largest upgrade in workers’ rights for over 20 years” were published. A number of these came into effect in April 2019, which brought in significant changes to pay slips and quadrupled the maximum penalty employers face for an aggravated or repeated breach of employment rights. In April 2020 the next, and much bigger, wave of changes will come into force. Changes will include; the content of written statements (employment contracts), when these must be issued, who they must be issued to, how to calculate holiday pay and changes to how agency workers must be treated! Join us for this webinar as we give you information about what you need to be ready for in 2020.
Interesting Cases of 2019
We reflect on some of the big employment cases in 2019. We’ll paint the scene, break down what the court ruling said and consider what we can learn from them about the way we manage our employees. We’ll also look at some cases which ended up with individuals having to pay out of their own pocket – and not just managers, but employees who went rogue too.
Handling a Sexual Harassment Complaint
In this webinar, we will consider what processes should be followed and ways of striking the sensitive balance that is required. We will also have a quick look at what has been done recently in the UK to improve protection and access to justice in sexual harassment cases in the workplace. It goes without saying that bringing up a complaint about sexual harassment to a line manager can be difficult and even distressing for the employee. But it can also be distressing for the person accused.
Grievances | Top HR Tips
In this webinar we are going to give some valuable tips and will run through a checklist of key things that every manager can get right to help ensure a grievance is handled properly. Grievances are concerns, problems or complaints that employees raise with their employers. Sometimes, and in fact ideally, these concerns are best approached informally. But sometimes they need to be handled formally and especially if they are serious. Good line management skills are essential for handling grievances correctly and for minimising the risk that the problems worsen or even result in a claim.
Protecting Your Business’s Prized Assets, its People
Protecting your business’s prized assets, its people, gives it a better chance of surviving in a fast moving global economy. The increasing pressure on business owners and management teams to deliver positive returns in an increasingly competitive global economy means that protecting your key people and shareholders has never been so profound. Watch HR Solutions webinar recording with guest presenter Toby Davidson, Managing Director of Lumin Insurance Solutions for tips and guidance on management risk protection.
