Last Thursday I was fortunate to be invited to a taster session of the Employment Law Club.
After an initial meet and greet and delicious lunch we had a review of the latest Employment Case Law which highlighted a wide range of employment topics such as holiday entitlement under the Working Time Directive, types and changes to the employment contract, TUPE and discrimination in the workplace.
It was interesting to examine and discuss case law to see common mistakes made by employers and which policies and practices could have prevented litigation. We looked at how organisations around the table have tackled similar or related issues and gained a legal and experienced HR professional insight. We also briefly looked at forthcoming changes in employment legislation.
All in all, I learnt a lot, will incorporate some brilliant ideas into our processes and practices and met some vibrant and interesting people with a wealth of experience and a genuine desire to learn and share.
