Event Overview 

The 13th HR Law Masterclass Conference hosted by Employment Law Matters is back again in 2020.
Attend to hear insights from 10 experienced Lawyers and benefit from case law reviews and pragmatic advice on the HR risks which are demanding the most of your time and attention.
The employment relationship is changing in many ways and HR risks are heightened due to the pace of workplace change, and the complexities of workplace issues are increasing. This includes revised approaches to talent management, wellbeing, mental health, terminations, investigations, and inappropriate conduct. Additionally, the scope of workplace rights has increased, and there is an increased focus from regulators to ensure compliance.
