Expert employment law advice on offer for North Wales businesses

John Merry

Businesses in North Wales will get the chance to be updated on the very latest employment law changes at a seminar this month.

Employment law seminars are held regularly each spring and autumn by Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors and this event will be held at Porth Eirias, The Promenade, Colwyn Bay, on November 29 between 12.30pm and 2.30pm.

The seminar starts with networking and buffet lunch, and is free to attend, although there is a £25 charge for HR professionals.

Guests will have the chance to hear about recent and forthcoming developments in employment law, network with fellow delegates and speak to members of Lanyon Bowdler’s vastly experienced team about any points they would like to raise.

John Merry, head of the firm’s Employment Law Team, said: “These events are always popular and are extremely useful for keeping businesses up to speed with employment law, which is ever-changing.

“We will be discussing changes to requirements for written statements of terms and conditions of employment, and recent court/tribunal decisions regarding working time, rest breaks, minimum wage record-keeping requirements, restrictive covenants and discrimination and harassment claims.

“We’ll look at harassment claims in more detail, including the impact of the #metoo movement on workplace relations, and how employers can minimise the risk of facing claims, or succeed with a statutory defence if they are brought.

“Related to this, we will dispel some myths about non-disclosure agreements – which are commonly referred to as NDAs – and which have been the subject of much media publicity.

“This will include guidance on when and how they can be used effectively and legally.

“There will be the opportunity to network with fellow delegates both before and after the seminar and the chance to speak to our employment team about any specific queries or points delegates would like to discuss with us.”
