    Shared Parental Leave

    Date: 19 Sep 2014 Location: Lewis Silkin, 5 Chancery Lane, Clifford's Inn, London
    Start: 9:30am Cost: £150 + VAT
    Finish: 12:30pm Availability: Currently sold out
    CPD Points: 3

    Long in the pipeline, a new, flexible scheme for parental leave and pay will finally come into effect in April 2015. Mothers and their partners will be able to share a year’s leave and 37 weeks’ statutory pay, but the rules are riddled with complexity. Our workshop will explain the way the system is designed to work and how employers will need to change their policies and procedures. We’ll cover in practical terms how to iron out the problem areas and explore how far employers may be at risk in continuing to pay enhanced maternity pay while not enhancing pay for shared parental leave.

    Third party rights affecting development schemes

    Date: 24 Sep 2014 Location: Lewis Silkin LLP
    Start: 4:30pm Cost: Free
    Finish: 6:00pm
    CPD Points: 1

    During this Development Officers' Forum, we will be discussing the third party rights that affect development schemes – how to spot them, what the issue is and how to effectively resolve them. This would include rights of light, restrictive covenants and rights obtained by prescription. We hope to make this session as interactive as possible and to provoke discussion of your experiences and debate amongst attendees.

    Obesity - the next frontier in discrimination law?

    Date: 25 Sep 2014 Location: Lewis Silkin LLP, 5 Chancery Lane, Clifford's Inn, London
    Start: 4:00pm Cost: Free
    Finish: 6:00pm

    In light of the much publicised Danish case, currently being heard in the European Court of Justice, in which a childminder is alleging discrimination on grounds of his obesity, we will be hosting a panel discussion, focussing on this issue, on Thursday 25 September 2014. With 64% of adults in the UK classified as obese or overweight, this case could have a massive impact on employers, if obesity is to be regarded as a protected characteristic going forward.
