About the Event

The new labour government is going to overhaul law at work and radical changes are set to take place. Employees and freelancers will be given important new rights, and some current practices will become unlawful. With an anticipated increase in legal claims and potentially little time to prepare, now is the opportunity to get ahead.

Employment law expert Ben Power will guide you through the anticipated changes, how they will affect you, your business and your productions, and what you should be doing to get ready. Changes we will cover include: increased unfair dismissal rights; increased rights for 'workers'; ban on zero hours contracts; new right to 'disconnect'; new flexible working rights; new family friendly rights; new restrictions on contract changes; new trade union rights.
