    Avoiding discrimination claims

    Date: 27 Nov 2014 CPD Points: 3

    Discrimination claims rank among many employers’ proverbial worst nightmares. They absorb valuable management time, damage staff morale and cost money... and that’s even if you ultimately win! Moreover, rapid growth in the use of electronic communication and social media means organisations facing litigation of this type are far more vulnerable to reputational damage. Our workshop, focusing on topical developments in equality law, will examine practical measures to minimise the risk of discrimination claims arising in the first place – and put you in the best position to mount an effective defence if the worst comes to the worst.

    Reform of the investor route

    Date: 7 Nov 2014

    Overseas investors and their families have been able to establish themselves in the UK since 1994. The essence of the investor route has survived fairly unchanged until now with the investment immigration route becoming even more popular over the last few years. In February 2014, the Migration Advisory Committee produced a report proposing reforms to the route and providing alternative ways for investment. The first significant changes are set to come into force this month.

    We need to talk about... holiday pay

    Date: 6 Nov 2014 CPD Points: 1.5

    There’s currently something of a time bomb ticking away under the issue of statutory holiday pay, with important cases pending before the courts on whether it must be calculated to include overtime and commission. While the financial implications for many businesses could turn out to be huge, the position is unlikely to be fully resolved for some time. In the meantime, our update will explain in clear terms the legal issues at stake in this and other key holiday risk areas and outline employers’ potential strategies for responding.
