Case Law & Canapés: Join us for our Annual Employment Law Update


Date: 11 July 2018
Time: 16:30 - 19:30    Venue: Bird & Bird, 12 New Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1JP


The pace of change in employment law has been as fast as ever in 2018. GDPR and the continued rise in Employment Tribunal claims following the abolition of fees have raised the stakes for employers and their HR teams. Developments in case law on restrictive covenants and the new Trade Secrets Directive are also adding to the workload of HR and legal teams.   

Join our London Employment Team for an overview of some of the key developments and trends in the employment law world, as well as their thoughts on some of the upcoming changes for the year ahead. 

The event will close with sundowners on our eleventh floor terrace, weather permitting.  

We hope you can join us!
