  • 15th Annual Labour Relations Conference - beyond Brexit together apart?

    When a group of people act together the more powerful have to listen. The TUC is right about this*. They are also right that some of the UK’s leading companies have vital union relationships, that the union movement is getting smaller and that members and activists are getting older. But isn’t an internal WhatsApp group a form of ‘union’? What about an online petition, a Facebook page or a letter to The Times with multiple signatures?
  • 9th Annual Comparative International Employment Law Seminar

    The past 12 months have seen seismic change in workplace equality driven by a combination of scandal, legislative initiatives and shifts in attitude towards, heightened awareness and historic behavioural norms.
  • Adjustments - What is reasonable?

    When a disabled job applicant or employee is ‘substantially’ disadvantaged, the employer has a duty to make reasonable adjustments. The difficulty is that what is ‘reasonable’ depends upon the circumstances of each case, and upon the size and resources of the employer. In addition, line-managers are frequently asked to consider a range of individual requests for flexibility which may appear to amount to ‘special treatment’.
  • Advanced employee investigation interview skills and tactics

    In recognition of the rising expectations judges have of an employer's investigation process and documentation, and the ever increasing complexity of some employee investigations, more and more organisations are recognising that the conduct of investigations is a specialist role, and developing in-house teams of dedicated management investigators.
  • Austrian employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    Although there are similarities, it is dangerous to consider the German and Austrian employment law systems to be one and the same. Austrian law is distinct in many ways, most importantly in relation to probationary periods, the termination of employment contracts and severance. There are also sufficient differences in contract law to make the use of one model employment contract, for German and Austrian employees, a potentially expensive error for employers.
  • Belgian employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    An employer found guilty of discrimination by a Belgian court can face a sentence of up to one year in prison. There is no concept of redundancy in Belgium and no concept of unfair dismissal either.
  • Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management

    This Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management training course is relevant to HR and recruitment professionals from Tier 2 and 5 sponsors (including potential sponsors) who use the sponsor management system or have responsibility for a sponsor licence. Knowledge of the points-based system is assumed.
  • Central and Eastern European HR: employment law in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia and Slovakia

    The Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries have distinctive employment law frameworks which an increasing number of HR practitioners and inhouse lawyers must come to terms with.
  • Contracts - common pitfalls and how to avoid them

    Contracts go wrong all the time. Parties will fight for their rights and the fall-out can be costly and a drain on management time. Getting your contracts right from the beginning may help stop disputes arising in the first place. You will also be better placed to keep contractual relationships on track if difficult issues arise or the other party wishes to re-negotiate.
  • Crisis, HR and PR

    High profile cases of sexual harassment have taught us nothing new about the law. Reputable organisations, with sophisticated HR awareness, were embarrassed by behaviours that were obviously wrong and then humiliated as the story unfolded. In each case there were rumours … and yet!
  • Delivering successful campus development projects - effectively risk managing the pitfalls

    In an increasingly global market quality and innovation in campus facilities can be a key differential for any institution. It attracts talent and promotes the brand. But developing state of the art buildings to live and learn on campus is a complex business. Every development is unique and has its own issues to protect but successfully delivering on time and on budget requires careful structured planning to eliminate and mitigate potential risk.
  • Disclosure and barring update - Safeguarding: changes, misconceptions and duties

    The Disclosure and Barring Service’s remit and processes have changed recently, widening access and using new technology to help employers make safer employment decisions. But DBS compliance assessments show that some Registered Bodies continue to make basic errors, such as failing to follow identity checking guidance or applying for inappropriate and unlawful barring list checks.
  • Driving for work - Records, police investigation and law

    There are over 500 ‘driving for work deaths’ a year and many more serious injuries. Most organisations have a driving for work policy which is often aspirational in part. If so, a Police/Regulatory investigation will highlight gaps between what you have said and what you have done. This briefing will update you on the risks and help you encourage safer driving across your organisation.
  • Employee investigations

    Employment tribunals expect employers to show that they have undertaken a fair and thorough investigation of complaints. This investigation can be time-consuming and complicated. However, if carried out early and correctly, an investigation should contain a problem and minimise distraction from the business.
  • Essential employment law for HR professionals

    HR professionals and managers need to understand the legal framework that underpins the employment relationship.
  • Essential immigration law for employers

    Increasing compliance activity, the Government’s commitment to a net migration target and Brexit make it crucial that employers have a clear understanding of right to work issues. This course covers the UK immigration system, in the context of the employment life cycle, the areas of law that apply and competing risks and penalties.
  • European HR: cross-border employment law

    Managing teams of people is challenging at the best of times. Working across European borders is even more difficult due to cultural and legal differences.
  • Fire safety post Grenfell - managing the regulatory, legal and reputational issues

    The recent high profile case of Grenfell Tower, as well as the earlier fire at Lakanal House, highlight that it is vital that fire safety risks are managed in residential and multi-occupancy buildings.
  • French employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    Based on the Napoleonic code and amended by statute ever since, French employment law is markedly different from the UK’s.
  • German employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    Germany is a major trading partner for many countries throughout the world, not to mention the most important single market in the European Union.
  • Health and Safety Summer School - Reputation and responsibility

    In 2009, six people died when a high-rise fire enveloped Lakanal House. Last year, the London Fire Brigade told the Court, “Bringing this prosecution against Southwark Council has been about ensuring that lessons are learned”. If only they had been. Health and safety professionals cannot forget the basics. They must still ensure managers know, understand and fulfil their responsibilities even when they may not want to listen, and that warnings from near misses and incidents are heeded.
  • HR summer school: Future-ready HR

    Given the demographic, technological and political shocks employers are likely to face in the next decade, what should HR stop doing or continue to do, and what are the new areas of focus? This Summer School provides different insights and ideas about the new opportunities HR professionals have to shape their organisations and their employees’ experience.
  • Immigration courses - Preparing for HEAT Inspections

    UKVI’s Higher Education Assurance Team (HEAT) are currently undertaking a programme to audit all universities over the next 12-18 months. As UKVI can take action, up to and including revocation of a sponsor’s licence, it is extremely important that universities are fully prepared for a HEAT inspection. Eversheds Sutherland’s Education Immigration team regularly helps universities prepare for a HEAT inspection by rigorously testing their processes and procedures to determine their effectiveness
  • Immigration law: tier 4 sponsor obligations - update for education institutions

    Education providers who sponsor, or intend to sponsor international students should attend this course. Tier 4 has been subject to increased scrutiny recently, in terms of changes to the sponsor guidance and UK Visas and Immigration inspections. Specialist lawyers will update you on recent guidance and practical areas to focus on to ensure compliance. They will share their experiences of assisting sponsors through UKVI inspections and how to prepare for an inspection.
  • Inquests and court appearances - Safety incident response

    When something goes wrong, the way an organisation responds, from the moment after the incident, all the way through the court process, is watched, recorded, analysed and judged
