Annual Update Seminars

Everything you need to know to prepare your business for the year ahead.

These seminars take place at the beginning of the year and are designed to get your business ready for the year ahead.

We start by reviewing the latest developments in employment law and the key legal cases that have affected UK employers. We’ll then look at what you need to do to prepare for the year ahead.

Recent topics include:

  • GDPR
  • Holiday pay
  • How Brexit will affect immigration and employment
  • Changes to how termination payments are taxed
  • Self-employment, contractors, and the gig economy
  • Gender pay gap reporting.
