Our Employment Law update held on 2nd November saw a large audience of HR professionals dial in to access the latest updates on key legal developments. In collaboration with international law firm Eversheds Sutherland, our online event was designed to keep our HR audiences informed and up-to-date in the ever-changing legal landscape. The event was led by two experts in employment law, Priyesh Dave and Ellie Brown, who shared their insight and expertise on pertinent topics in the HR space.
Ellie Brown, has been a Principal Associate in the Employment Labour and Pensions Group since 2012, and is highly experienced in advising clients on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law matters. This includes advising on employee disputes, redundancies, restructurings, and much more. Her in-depth knowledge of the complexities of employment law made her an ideal speaker for this event.
Priyesh Dave, on the other hand, has been a Senior Associate in the Employment, Labour and Pensions group since 2015, and has extensive experience advising clients on all aspects of employment law. His expertise spans from advising on the full life cycle of employment relationships, including interviewing, right-to-work checks, drafting templates and bespoke service agreements, to providing advice regarding disciplinaries, grievances, and executive severances.
The session focused on the following pertinent topics within the HR space:
- Family Friendly Changes – Navigating adjustments to carer’s leave, neonatal leave and pay, strengthened protection from redundancy and flexible working
- Harassment at Work – Exploring the significant workplace issue of sexual harassment and the government’s steps towards legal change
- Artificial Intelligence and HR – Focusing on the increasing use of AI within HR and the key employment law risk areas concerned with this. New regulations and policies are on the horizon.
