HJ Talks HR: Employment Video Series

Our Employment & HR Services team has recorded a series of videos offering guidance to organisations on key HR issues. The HJ Talks HR series covers topics including, complex gender identities, employee engagement and wellbeing, menopause and occupational health.

Complex gender identities

Join Emily Thomas, Kate Walsh and Leah Ellison as they unravel the Taylor v Jaguar Land Rover Ltd judgment in the first video of our HJ Talks HR series. Emily and Kate will offer guidance on what organisations should be doing to ensure they offer sufficient support to individuals who identify as gender fluid or non-binary as well as analysing how relevant sections of the Equality Act should be interpreted going forward. Please note that the Claimant is referred to as she/her during this video as those were the pronouns the Claimant requested to be used at the time of the tribunal hearing.

Employee engagement & wellbeing in a virtual world

Kate Walsh and Emily Thomas will explore how managers can effectively engage with their teams in a virtual world. We will discuss the various issues and pressures attached to remote working and how managers can sensitively handle performance management issues, should they arise.

This HJ Talks HR video will also explore the different tools and initiatives used by organisations to offer support to colleagues who may be feeling isolated or are struggling with remote working.


Join Rhiannon Dale and Eleanor Bamber as they take a closer look at the case law surrounding the menopause and its interaction with the Equality Act 2010. Rhiannon and Eleanor will discuss key takeaway points for workplaces when supporting staff undergoing the menopause transition in this HJ Talks HR video.
