Brexit: Im­pli­ca­tions for em­ploy­ment law

Martin Bloom, He­garty LLP Solic­i­tors

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Business -

FOL­LOW­ING the UK’s de­ci­sion to leave the EU, there has been much spec­u­la­tion as to the ef­fect on UK law, par­tic­u­larly in the area of em­ploy­ment law - which has a large amount of un­der­pin­ning in EU law.

I will be dis­cussing this sub­ject next month, at the an­nual Anne Corder Re­cruit­ment and He­garty Solic­i­tors Em­ploy­ment Law Sem­i­nar on Tues­day, Septem­ber 27.

The break­fast sem­i­nar at­tracts HR pro­fes­sion­als, man­agers and lo­cal busi­ness own­ers from across the re­gion who will again have the op­por­tu­nity to hear the lat­est up­dates in em­ploy­ment law from ex­perts here at He­garty Solic­i­tors.

We will be dis­cussing which as­pects of em­ploy­ment law are most likely to be af­fected when the UK leaves the EU.

Cer­tain ar­eas of UK em­ploy­ment law such as equal pay rights were al­ready part of UK law be­fore the EU leg­is­lated in this area and laws such as the Na­tional Min­i­mum Wage are al­ready reg­u­lated by UK and not EU leg­is­la­tion, so we are un­likely to see much change here.

How­ever, ar­eas of em­ploy­ment law that have proved un­pop­u­lar with UK businesses such as Agency Worker Reg­u­la­tions and Work­ing Time Reg­u­la­tions could be sub­ject to change.

Although con­firmed changes may not be­come ap­par­ent for some time, it is im­por­tant for em­ploy­ers to be pre­pared for pos­si­ble out­comes of the UK’s de­ci­sion to leave the EU.

I aim, at the sem­i­nar, to high­light ar­eas of law em­ploy­ers should be aware of, in or­der to pre­pare for, and an­tic­i­pate pos­si­ble changes, once the UK leaves the EU.

We will also dis­cuss case law, and the most im­por­tant em­ploy­ment cases heard in the last 12 months that may have im­pli­ca­tions for em­ploy­ers.

Tim Thomp­son, Part­ner at He­garty Solic­i­tors will also give a best prac­tice over­view of deal­ing with sub­ject ac­cess re­quests at the sem­i­nar.

The Anne Corder Re­cruit­ment and He­garty Solic­i­tors an­nual em­ploy­ment law sem­i­nar is at­tended by over 200 pro­fes­sion­als from across the re­gion and is in its 19th year.

The sem­i­nar is anideal op­por­tu­nity to meet other pro­fes­sion­als and en­sure you are up to date with the lat­est em­ploy­ment law and HR news.
