On 5th February we ran another highly informative seminar in conjunction with DMH Stallard, ”Keeping on the right side of employment law”. Despite the best efforts of the tube strikers to hinder attendance a good group fought through London’s travel woes for what was described as an ‘excellent seminar with strong learnings to take away’. Blair Adams, our speaker, described in detail situations and applications of challenging employment law from a range of recent legislative changes.
ISE Partners recognise the importance of access to this information for our client partners and will continue to host such informative events as this one. In just the second half of 2013 various laws have taken effect from; Whistleblowing, Unfair dismissals because of political opinions, third party harassment to name just a few.

Part 1 – key developments from 2013
Part 2 – what to expect in 2014
mandatory ACAS conciliation
new Maternity/Paternity rights from April 2014
new TUPE regulations
