Webinar: Employment Law Update replay | April 2021

The members of the Hugh James Employment and HR Services team, in conjunction with HR Spectrum, are delighted to invite you to view our complimentary lunchtime webinar.

The webinar will include our ever-popular Employment Law Update, covering recent case law decisions and legislative developments. We will also “horizon scan” the challenges that lie ahead for employers in 2021. The update will cover the recent Supreme Court decision in Uber v Aslam and the potential implications of that decision in terms of employment status issues for employers, and the “gig economy” more generally. We will also look at the IR35 rules as they apply to the private sector from 6 April 2021, and the obligations for businesses that arise from the changes. Finally, the update will consider the impact of Brexit on EU nationals immigration status, and what employers will need to do should they wish to continue to employ new EU workers going forwards.

The second part of the session will focus on the topic of “The Changed and Changing World of Work”. This is a broad topic, but particular emphasis will be given to both the challenges and opportunities facing employers as they map out the return to the workplace following the COVID-19 pandemic. This section of the webinar was covered in the style of an interactive case study.

We have posted the webinar recording above, for you to watch at your leisure.
