Think holiday pay calculation is a widely accepted and uncontroversial practice?

Following recent decisions in Europe and in the UK courts; think again.

There is now the potential for employers to have to recalculate holiday pay – both going forwards and, in some cases, historically to deal with back pay claims for underpaid holiday pay for a large number of their employees.

For employers large and small, this has the potential to become the biggest liability since equal pay.  If your organisation operates an overtime, commission, allowance, call-out, stand-by, acting-up or bonus payment structure, you need to take advice now.

Join speakers Joseph Shelston and Kate Venables, who will guide you through the impact of recent European and UK case law in this area including the scenario of potential back pay claims from employees – going back 6 years and beyond!

Our seminar will consider the many unanswered questions in this unsettled area of law and offer both a comprehensive review of the position to date along with strategic guidance for employers, business owners and HR professionals tasked with handling this difficult issue.

Date:   Tuesday 23 September 2014
Time:   8.30am – 10.00am

Cost: £125 plus VAT per delegate for attendance at the seminar including a comprehensive guidance document to take away.

According to global research by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, the world's largest anti-fraud organisation, whistleblowing is by far the most common way in which frauds and malpractice are uncovered.
However, recent legislative changes mean that organisations could now be liable for compensating any employees hounded by others in the organisation as a result of whistleblowing, and may face potential employment claims under the Public Interest Disclosure Act (PIDA).

Therefore, organisations must understand how they can best provide appropriate channels for employees to speak up and raise concerns about actions that could protect your business from damage to reputation, negative publicity, regulatory investigation, fines and compensation. 

Grant Thornton will discuss work they have done with a number of organisations to help them implement speak-up procedures and to carry out forensic investigations when an allegation of wrongdoing has been made.

Head of Employment & Pensions, Nick Campbell and Senior Associate, Paul Ryman will be delivering a session on whistleblowing from an Employment Law perspective including the changes to Legislation introduced in June 2013 and practical tips on how you can reduce the risk that whistleblowing could pose to your business.

Most employers see TUPE as a huge legal headache, and it often can be. We are inviting you to join us for a training session that will help cure that headache by helping you get to grips with the practical (not academic legal) issues that arise from TUPE transfers.

The public training session we are running will be case study based, involving a complex outsourcing situation, and will look at the challenging but relevant everyday situations that typically arise on TUPE transfers. How do you decide which staff transfer? What about temps, independent contractors, employees on secondment and those on long leave? What about employees who divide up their time between lots of different parts of a business? When employees transfer what risks pass over to you? What if you want to restructure a business after a TUPE transfer, and how can you harmonise terms and conditions of employment? What happens to pension liabilities, and what if you are involved in public sector transfers which carry particular difficulties?

If you are an employer, manager, HR professional or member of an organisation who has particular responsibility for managing the employee issues that arise on a TUPE transfer, if you are involved in pitching for and winning new contracts, then this will be an essential course for you.

As always with Brabners training sessions, interactive and engaging case studies will be used which encourage group discussion and the sharing of know-how between delegates, and which enhance the overall learning experience.

If you are unable to make the public training session then feel free to book on to webinar that we will be running the following day covering the same topic and issues around TUPE.

You can attend either session for the competitive price of £50 plus VAT per person. We’re sure you will find the sessions great value for money and we look forward to seeing you there. Bookings will be confirmed once payment has been received.

Please be quick to book your place as space on the session is limited. To go ahead and reserve your place please complete the booking form.

The course will be delivered by four specialist employment lawyers and trainers, Marcus Difelice, Stephen Brodie, Chris Pavlou and Philip Woolham.
