National Living Wage Regulations

The Government has today published the Regulations required to implement the new National Living Wage rate in April.  Reading the Regulations it is clear that the same rules will apply to the new £7.20 rate as to the other rates, which begs the question...why not just call it the National Minimum Wage for those aged 25 and over?!
We'll be covering this and other subjects on our Spring employment law update which will take place on 3 March 2016 at etc venues Victoria, London and there are just a few places left.
The update will bring you right up to date with all new and forthcoming employment law and case law as well as providing an opportunity to network with other HR professionals and business leaders. The day will be led by Cas Carrington, KLC Partner, who not only teaches on the CIPD's Postgraduate Certificate in Employment Law, and Advanced Level in Employment Law but also writes and delivers the CIPD Law on tour workshops. As the course is CPD accredited you will be able to allocate the learning towards your CPD records.
The programme will include:

  • all new and imminent legislation, including the consultation and proposals on taxation of termination payments, equal pay audits, proposed changes to balloting for industrial action and union subscriptions, and the review and enquiry into employment tribunal fees.

  • a review of all important case law

  • disciplinary and grievance investigations

  • managing and fairly dismissing awkward employees

  • hearings - recurring problems and how to avoid them

  • the do's and don'ts at employment tribunal

  • a review of early conciliation - latest statistics and case law

  • short case studies to illustrate important issues.

The venue has great facilities with purpose built conference rooms all with natural light.  
The delegate fee will be £350, plus VAT which will include, continental breakfast, mid-morning and afternoon refreshments, a restaurant lunch, and of course a comprehensive reference manual containing all the information from the day as well as useful resources like key pointers, checklists, an investigation plan and guidelines. If you bring a colleague you will receive 10% off one of the bookings.
