Business leaders and HR professionals can gain insights into the latest changes in employment law when a series of breakfast workshops return in May.
Law firm Furley Page, which has offices in Chatham, Canterbury and Whitstable, will host the workshops in partnership with Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce.
The sessions are open to chamber members and non-members alike, whatever the size of their workforce.
The first, which will deliver an employment law update for 2019, will take place on Thursday, May 2 at the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel.
It will provide the latest updates on a range of employment law topics, the likely impact on businesses, practical guidance on how to prepare for forthcoming changes, key dates for employment law reform and the potential effects on HR policies.
A further workshop on investigating discipline and grievances in the workplace will follow on Thursday, May 16.
Andrew Masters, partner and head of employment, at Furley Page, said: "Employment is a complex and ever-changing area of the law, so it is very important that employers and HR professionals keep up to date with the latest developments.
“As well as practical guidance, there will be question and answer sessions so there's plenty of opportunity for delegates to raise specific areas of concern. These annual workshops are very well attended, and delegates are urged to book now to secure their place.”
The event runs from 8am to noon.
Kent Invicta Chamber members receive a discounted rate of £75, while the costs for non-members are £95.
