Many of you attended H&F Schools HR’s first annual Employment Law Conference in November 2019. The conference was a huge success and an engaging and entertaining experience thanks to the two expert barristers from a leading set of chambers in Grays Inn. We are very pleased to confirm that we will be hosting a further conference on 1 December 2020 and that Simon Harding and Fergus McCombie from “The 36 Group”, will deliver the conference again. This year the conference will take place via a Zoom webinar due to the current circumstances regarding Covid-19.
The event provides a unique opportunity to come together to hear the latest employment law news and advice from experts in the field. In addition, we know that Covid-19 has presented you with huge and ongoing challenges regarding the management of your staff. We would like to invite you to submit your questions regarding this issue in advance of the conference so that the barristers can provide their expert advice and guidance.
The feedback from last year’s conference was overwhelmingly positive:
“I came away energised and confident in handling staffing issues surrounding the most common themes. Huge thank you to the LA for organising and seeking out inspirational and engaging barristers with in-depth experience of the law and education as presenters”
“Very well presented. Facilitators were knowledgeable and engaging.”
“This conference was very timely and a reminder of all the legal implications when handling difficult situations, the importance of taking advice, following policies consistently at all times and the need to be courageous in making decisions in the best interests of the organisation”.
When will it take place?
The webinar will take place via Zoom in the morning of Tuesday 1 December from 9.30 to 12.30.
Who should attend?
School leaders who would like a better understanding of employment law and clear guidance on avoiding legal pitfalls. Feedback from delegates who attended last year indicated that governors would benefit from this conference and we are pleased to confirm that this year the webinar is open to governors.
