NI- Understanding TUPE - A Practical Seminar

Tuesday, 24 October, 9:20 AM

Understanding TUPE – A practical Seminar

Since the ‘new’ TUPE regulations were introduced in 2006, we have seen a great deal of case law develop, particularly in the area of contracting out/in services, which in Northern Ireland is governed by our Transfer and Service Provision Change Regulations.

We have also seen differences arise between TUPE laws in GB, where further changes were introduced in 2014, and NI, where the legislation hasn’t changed since 2006.

Why is this event important for YOU?
Employers and their advisors need to know how the Regulations operate and are developing (and the differences between GB and NI), or you will face major legal problems and unanticipated liabilities and costs. More than that – you need to understand how TUPE works in practice and how to avoid the (very expensive) pitfalls.

This event combines presentation by renowned TUPE experts, Adam Brett, Partner, Jones Cassidy Brett and Roger Watts, Partner, C&J Black solicitors, and a series of group exercises, designed to reinforce your learning in a safe environment.

After attending you will:
Have a clearer understanding of TUPE laws and developments, where the opportunities lie and how to avoid dangers.

Course overview/outline programme
There are four key sections in the programme, each followed by a group exercise to reinforce learning:

  • Defining TUPE and the Framework of Protections
  • Unfair Dismissal and Other Employment Factors
  • Service Provision Changes
  • Information and Consultation

Who is it for?
This event is aimed at anyone who is, or will soon be, going through a TUPE transfer or anyone who might have to advise and employer or employees on same.

ROI- Annual Review of Employment Law 2017- Red Cow

Thursday, 2 November, 9:15 AM

Legal-Island | Irish Employment Law Hub

We are also running this event on the 15th November 2017 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and the 30th November 2017 at the Talbot Hotel.

2017 has been another busy year for HR and employment law developments. Get ready for more rules on mandatory retirement and casualization of employment. If you’re not already prepared, you must now get your organisation GDPR-proofed: the EU General Data Protection Regulation and 20m fines are on the way for data breaches from May 2018.

October 2015 saw the WRC come into operation: we have trends from 2016/17and what their areas of focus will be in 2018. We also have the latest advice on flexible working and the gig economy, and what Workplace Adjudicators expect from you at hearings.

But we don’t just cover the latest legislative and practical developments – we will also analyse Irish employment case law on issues as wide as the closed shop, part-time working, religious symbols in the workplace, right of representation, reduction/deductions from wages and much more. Nor do we stop at employment law developments alone: we also have sessions on key issues currently concerning HR and legal practitioners, such as best practice in handling bullying, framing disciplinary investigations, making reasonable accommodations in performance cases and handling employees who go off sick to avoid disciplinary action and other awkward situations – and much more besides – all in one day.
