#Preparing4Change
 

Gender Pay Gap
Following the introduction of the Gender Pay Gap Regulations in April 2017, Jack will give an update looking at the implications of these regulations. To whom do they apply? What needs to be reported? What is included in the calculation of pay? This is an issue which is currently topical even in Hollywood as actress Robin Wright was recently reported to have demanded the same pay as co-star Kevin Spacey in the popular "House of Cards".

General Data Protection Regulations
With under a year to go until the new data protection regulations come into force in the UK, lots of questions are arising.  Does GDPR apply to me?  Is there any change in how I can use data?  Do my policies and procedures need to be updated? What happens if I do not comply with GDPR? Ruth will give a brief outline on the impact of these regulations and discuss the key steps employers should be taking. 

Subject Access Requests
What are they? What are the processes? What information about an individual employee can and cannot be withheld? Andrew will discuss the changing law surrounding subject access requests and why employers should be careful about what they say about their employees.

The Art of the Reference
When asked about an ex-employee, what can you say? More importantly, what can't you say? Is there a duty to tell the truth? Simon will discuss the law relating to references and give some helpful guidelines for best practice for employers.

All you need to know on these key topics in under an hour.

If you go to one seminar this year, choose this one.

If you go two, come along twice.
