Taylor Vinters reveals latest updates at cutting edge employment law conference

The effects of social media and technology on employment were two key themes at leading next generation law firm Taylor Vinters’ Employment Law Update, held in Cambridge last week.

Around 80 HR experts  attended the day-long event, which featured a keynote speech from Cambridge Judge Business School Dr Philip Stiles on ‘Revitalisation: managing succession and culture’.

Lawyers Roger James and Kim Wedral-Rooke from Taylor Vinters’ employment law team considered social recruitment trends and issues surrounding privacy, diversity, data protection and accuracy. Their colleague Jo Edgely discussed issues arising during employment, such as TUPE changes, shared parental leave, discrimination and occupational health reform.

Taylor Vinters lawyers Christine Berry and Dominic Holmes looked at employment tribunals, terminating the contract, retirement, ACAS early conciliation and how to deal with “bad leavers”. Christine Berry said: “Non-solicitation has really come into its own due to technology. Tech trails left behind on a number of recent cases have clearly shown that solicitation has taken place, whether it is by LinkedIn, mobile phone calls, texts and emails.”
