Sex, Slaves and Social Media: DBF’s Annual Employment Law Conference Confirmed.

On Thursday 12th May, Manchester law firm Davis Blank Furniss is staging its free Annual Employment Law Conference.

This year’s conference is entitled Sex, Slaves and Social Media and will focus on the recent cases and new legislation that matter to organisations of all sizes in the North West.

Led by Shiva Shadi – head of Employment – and Anna Bunting, partner – the morning event will look ahead to the changes that businesses should be aware of – including:

Holiday Pay: Should organisations now be paying holiday pay on commission, bonuses and overtime or wait to see what happens?  The team will also cover other the most asked holiday queries.

Modern Slavery Act: It will affect all companies regardless of whether they have a £36M turnover so attendees will learn the steps that they should be taking right now. Modern slavery statements will also be discussed

The Ramphal Case: This high profile case held that HR departments are not allowed to give advice to line managers in disciplinary and grievances processes but tips will be shared to show how to get round the ruling.

Gender Pay Reporting: DBF will provide an overview of this new obligation and the consequences of failing to comply.

The National Living Wage: The new penalties for breaching it.

Social Media in the Workplace: Topics covered will include email and internet misuse

Shiva Shadi commented:Employment Law is a complex minefield that needs to be navigated properly. There has been lots of significant tribunal decisions as well as key legislation that have come into force over recent months. It is therefore imperative that employers know the facts about each one so they ensure they are compliant and don’t make costly mistakes.”
