Employment Law Update
Greystone Legal are hosting a free employment seminar at The Work Place on Friday 27 October from 8 to 9.30am. This is the first of a number of employment law updates which will be provided, and on this occasion there will be important information about recent changes in holiday pay requirements.
Greystone will also provide the low down on employment references: when are employers obliged to provide references for employees, what should they contain and to what extent can an employer be liable for references which they have provided. Attendees will also receive an update on the abolishment of employment tribunal fees, which were brought in three years ago but quashed by the Supreme Court recently – a move which is expected to see a hike in tribunal claims.
