Latest developments in employment law for strategic HR leads

This online event on Monday 9 November provides an intensive update on the latest developments in employment law for strategic HR leads.
The sessions of the event will run from 2.00pm - 3.30pm, including short breaks, continuing with a further, more discursive session from 3.45 pm - 4.45 pm on the legal and operational challenges posed by Covid-19. 

Senior colleagues from Eversheds Sutherland will give a comprehensive update on a number of employment law developments, followed by Q&As on their presentations. The presentations will be followed by an interactive Q&A forum on the impact of Covid-19 on HEIs. For those who prefer to submit questions in advance, there will be an opportunity to do this, as well as raise questions verbally or in writing on the day. 

This event assumes an expert working knowledge of employment law and practice and is designed to bring senior HR colleagues in member HEIs up to date on recent and anticipated employment law developments and consider their impact on HEIs in a highly challenging workforce context.
As we will be encouraging questions and discussion we are asking participants to observe the Chatham House Rule, and so we won’t be recording the event. 

Speakers will include

Di Gilhooley, Partner and Global Head of Employment, Labour and Pensions, Eversheds Sutherland 
David O’Hara, Principal Associate, Eversheds Sutherland 
Nicola Bennison, Partner, Eversheds Sutherland 


The headline areas currently scheduled to be covered include:
  • The Employment Bill
  • Statutory bereavement leave and pay
  • Managing harassment complaints
  • The use of confidentiality clauses
  • The key legal/operational challenges presented by Covid-19
