MANAGING sickness absence and new strands of discrimination are top of the agenda at this year’s employment law seminar, hosted by Anne Corder Recruitment and Hegarty LLP Solicitors.
The annual event, which attracts around 200 of the city’s HR professionals, focuses on new legislation and its likely impact on businesses in the Greater Peterborough area.
Regular speaker Martin Bloom, employment partner at Hegarty’s, will be discussing the two new strands of discrimination introduced by the Equality Act 2010 – that of associative and perceptive discrimination. His colleague Emma Carter will be talking about the key legal and practical considerations when managing and dismissing sick and disabled employees. Completing the presentations will be partner Tim Thompson who will be looking at examples of recent case law.
Anne Corder said, “It is vital that HR professionals keep up to date with new legislation. Our seminars address those issues and help translate them into real life scenarios. We are delighted to be working with the experts at Hegarty’s to provide that kind of help to businesses in the area once more.”
The seminar is taking place at the East of England Showground in Peterborough on Tuesday, September 20th. Attendance is free and includes breakfast but places are limited. Please call 01733 319888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
