Everything you wanted to know about UK Employment Law and were afraid to ask
If you are a US-based HR professional or in-house lawyer responsible for handling employment issues that arise in your company's UK operations, or a UK-based HR professional needing a refresher, this workshop is for you! Henry Clinton-Davis, Head of the UK/EU Employment Law team at international law firm Arnold & Porter (UK) LLP, will be covering a wide range of employment law issues you are likely to encounter in practice and which your employer will expect you to know about. The aim is not to make you an expert, but to give you an essential overview so that you can spot and pre-empt problems and avoid the traps many companies encounter when doing business in the UK.
Henry has been advising US and UK companies on European employment issues for much of his career. If you have colleagues within your own company or in other companies who you think may find the seminar of interest, please pass this invitation to them. RSVP below to ensure you can connect from the comfort of your own desk!
