Commercial law firm Brabners has won the ‘Employment Law Award’ at Liverpool Law Society's Legal Awards 2015.

Brabners was one of three nominated firms to reach the shortlist in the employment law category, alongside Hill Dickinson and Morecrofts.

In just over one week the polls will open for voting in what is expected to be one of the hardest fought and hardest to call elections of recent decades. Despite the huge uncertainty on the outcome there are some surprisingly common themes when it comes to what the main parties see as key employment issues, says Joseph Shelston, Employment Law Partner at commercial law firm Brabners.

Brabners has sponsored the TEAM Member of the year award at the TEAM National Networking Conference for the second year running.

TEAM is the largest network of independent recruiters in the UK with currently over 500 locations. Brabners has a well-established relationship with TEAM; in addition to being the network’s Principal Legal Advisor, the firm is regional advisor to the Midlands, North West, North East and South West England.

Employees who ignore restrictive covenants in their employment contract by moving from one company to a named competitor may find themselves out of work, according to a Manchester court.

It's often thought that a provision banning an employee from moving directly to a named competitor may be unenforceable as being in restraint of trade, and indeed that was the argument advanced by Sales Team Leader Benjamin Johnson at Manchester's High Court.

TEAM (The Employment Agents Movement) has reappointed leading law firm Brabners as Principal Legal Advisor.

TEAM is the largest network of independent recruiters in the UK with currently over 500 locations. Brabners has a well-established relationship with TEAM; in addition to being the network’s Principal Legal Advisor for a further two years, the firm is regional advisor to the Midlands, North West, North East and South West England.

North West law firm Brabners is hosting a seminar on holiday pay to guide employers 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!

Employment law specialists from the firm 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.

Brabners has combined its Employment and Pensions teams, to respond to the increasing trend of employers seeking combined employment and pensions law advice when harmonising employee benefits.

A number of changes to legislation including the introduction of the auto enrolment regime, the abolition of the default retirement age and issues relating to the flexible retirement of staff often require legal advice in both an employment and pensions context.  The firm’s employment and pensions lawyers are currently advising employers and pension scheme trustees on these key issues.

North West law firm Brabners has made up one Partner, five Senior Associates and two Associates in its annual round of promotions.

FCSA has announced the appointment of three new code reviewers: Brabners, BDO, and Saffery Champness.  All FCSA code assessors are either Chartered Accountants or Regulated Solicitors, and have demonstrable experience of specialising in the freelance sector. 
 
Brabners are nationally recognised experts in the law relating to the recruitment sector, and will work alongside BDO to provide the specialist legal element of FCSA code reviews. 
 

With less than a week to go until the start of the World Cup in Brazil, employers should be thinking how the event might impact their organisation, says Joseph Shelston, Employment Law Partner at law firm Brabners.

Although the event is taking place outside of the UK, it is still likely to cause a shift in behaviour amongst the UK workforce with an increase in requests for annual leave, sickness absence and website use during working hours.
