HR and workplace issues are increasing in prominence and complexity – from new approaches to talent management, mental health, terminations, workplace investigations, bullying, harassment, and other forms of inappropriate workplace conduct.
Adopting and integrating strong policies and practices around health and wellbeing - both physical and psychological – is also becoming an increasingly important mandate for employers to ensure a healthy, engaged and productive workforce.
Additionally, employers and HR professionals are dealing with new accessorial liabilities, the advent of adverse actions, and ensuring a more systematic approach to compliance. Then, there are potential changes to expect, post-election.
The HR Law Masterclass conference is literally a masterclass in all the key aspects of employment law: hear from and engage with 12 lawyers in your city. Over 3,000 delegates have benefited by attending this series since 2014.
