Cambridge Network Event: An Employment Law Seminar.  Employment status update

Tuesday 6th June - 8.30am registration with breakfast and drinks, 9am start with close at 10am

 

Taylor Vinters, Merlin Place, Milton Rd, Cambridge CB4 0DP

 

This Employment Law Seminar is being held in conjunction with Taylor Vinters. We trust that delegates will find our seminar useful and that it will help to clarify issues relating to employment status and the so called “gig economy”. We aim to make this an interactive session and delegates will have the opportunity to discuss any burning questions they may have about the changing landscape of employment status and the terms upon which they engage their staff.

 

Employment status (within the context of businesses engaging staff under more flexible and non-traditional business models) has emerged as one of the hottest HR topics over the course of the last year.  This follows a number of significant decisions (brought against businesses such as Uber and Pimlico Plumbers) and also widely-reported claims that low-paid workers, particularly, but not only, those on zero-hours contracts, are being denied employment rights and protections.

 

Our seminar aims to clarify the current position in relation to the factors that distinguish an employee from a worker or a self-employed contactor and will discuss the significance of this distinction.  We will provide clear guidance and practical tips for dealing with issues related to employment status, based on lessons that can be learned from recent case law.  We will also look at steps the Government is currently taking to address these issues.
