Herefordshire businesses offered employment law advice

Businesses in Herefordshire will be updated on the latest changes in employment law at an event being held this spring.

Employment law seminars are hosted by law firm Lanyon Bowdler every spring and autumn to ensure that people running businesses and those involved in the management and welfare of employees are kept fully up to date with the latest legislation, published guidance and developments in case law.

The Hereford seminar will be held at The Three Counties Hotel, Hereford, on Wednesday 18 March, 12.30-2.30pm. It is free to attend, but there is a small charge for HR professionals, and people are being asked to book a place well in advance.

Will Morse, a partner in Lanyon Bowdler’s employment team operating from its Hereford and Bromyard offices, said: “These are always popular events when we can update people on recent changes and what they mean for them and their business.

“We will be providing key pointers for employers in relation to managing sickness absence and highlighting important principles arising from reported cases decided since our autumn updates.

“This includes, in relation to disciplinary matters, a reminder of the answer to the often-asked question of ‘do we always need to hold a separate investigation meeting?’

“We will also be looking at the extension to the off-payroll working rules and the introduction of parental bereavement leave and pay, which are expected in April this year.”

There will be an opportunity to network with fellow delegates both before and after the seminars and the chance to speak to Lanyon Bowdler’s employment team on any specific points delegates would like to raise.
