The Fieldfisher Employment, Pensions, Immigration and Compliance team is delighted to invite you to our flagship event of the year, Leading the Way – 2018 & Beyond, to be held at our London office. This is an exciting event for HRDs and General Counsel.

We will explore hot topics including Brexit, the future of work, GDPR, and the impact of the abolition of Tribunal fees.

Following a short introduction we will host a series of interactive workshops, where we hope to have a lively facilitated discussion on how these issues may affect your business. The morning will also provide an opportunity to network with your peers and discuss how companies are preparing for and responding to the challenges created by these issues. You will have the option to attend two workshops during the course of the event. The topics covered in the workshops will be:

  • Brexit Decoded– we will discuss recruitment, relocation, immigration and the retention of EU national staff, EU nationals' rights, as well as pension issues for individuals leaving the UK.
  • The Future of work – Status, IR35, the Taylor Report- learn more about the Taylor Report, government consultation documents, and guidance from the Courts. 
  • GDPR– what practical steps should HR and Pension Trustees take to be ready for May 2018? 
  • Litigation- the future without Tribunal fees, the increase of subject access requests and how this impacts disclosure, and how Employment, Pensions and Immigration law collides in the Employment Tribunal.
