Employment law is ever evolving and 2020 looks set to bring with it a number of changes. At this year’s briefing session, the employment team from George Green LLP will bring you up to speed on recent developments and will also highlight forthcoming changes in employment law. There will also be an overview of the forthcoming changes to tax legislation regulating off-payroll working (commonly known as IR35).
This session is aimed at HR managers and directors or business owners that are involved in people management.
A range of issues will be covered, for example:
  • changes due to be taking effect from April 2020 as a result of the Good Work Plan, which includes improved written statements of terms and a change to the holiday pay reference period;
  • an update on recent notable employment law cases, in particular, the case of Royal Mail Group v Jhuti which raised a key question about whether the reason for dismissal can be different to that given to the employee by the decision maker;
  • forthcoming changes to the tax treatment of termination payments;
  • an update on the latest cases relating to employment status; 
  • potential changes to family friendly rights, including government consultations on neonatal care leave and pay, parental leave and the transparency of flexible working and family-friendly policies;
  • an update on the latest position regarding holiday pay; and
  • an overview of the upcoming IR35 changes.
