Our topical review of developments will examine recent and forthcoming changes in employment and immigration law.
It’s hardly surprising immigration continues to be an area of crucial concern for employers – largely although not exclusively because of the changes and uncertainties created by Brexit. We will update you on the Government’s current policy positions on the UK immigration system post-Brexit, as well as our observations on how the EU Settlement Scheme is working and its implications for employers. We will also provide an overview of the latest rules and policy updates in other areas, together with guidance to help you protect your business effectively.
Separately, we will examine changes in employment law. Important cases in the past few months have included decisions on sex discrimination and pay for shared parental leave, perceived disability discrimination, requirements to record working time, and the wording of restrictive covenants. As for planned reforms, various changes are due to take place in April 2020 as part of the Government’s Good Work Plan. We are awaiting the detail on plans for extra redundancy protection for women who are pregnant or on maternity leave, and limits on use of confidentiality clauses. We will also update you on the raft of consultation documents issued in July. Not forgetting the implications of (delayed) Brexit and the change of Government. As usual, we will cover all significant cases and other developments that happen before the session.
