Brexit: What are the implications for UK employment law?

Employment Law SeminarFollowing 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.

 

Martin Bloom, Partner and Head of the Employment Department at Hegarty Solicitors will be discussing this subject at the annual Anne Corder Recruitment and Hegarty Solicitors Employment Law Seminar on 27th September at the Holiday Inn, Peterborough.

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

Martin Bloom will be discussing which aspects of employment law are most likely to be affected when the UK leaves the EU. Martin commented “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. At the employment law seminar I aim 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.”

At the annual employment law seminar Martin 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.
