Now in its 16th year, the annual roadshow has established quite a following.
Helen Watson, Partner and Head of Employment Law at Aaron and Partners, said: “The roadshow is one of our biggest events of the year, and it was fantastic to see so many business representatives, both new faces and old, attending to ensure they stay up to date and compliant with employment law changes.
“Ever since we started our roadshows, they have grown year on year and is now a recognised resource for business professionals, working in so many different industries, across the region.
“Now, more than ever before it is vital that businesses are up to date and aware of any legal changes being introduced. With coronavirus having a huge impact on all aspects of employment law, and changing so rapidly each day, we felt it was important to include this as part of the roadshow to provide support during an extremely tough time to navigate.”
Claire Brook, Employment Law Partner at the firm, who also spoke at the seminar, added: “The employment law roadshow is such a popular event thanks to our consistent coverage of the key case law highlights relevant to HR, insights into the very latest legal changes that impact local employers and practical advice on proactive steps businesses should take.
“From managing employee absence due to coronavirus, to the new IR35 tax legislation surrounding contractors which has now been deferred, we left no stone unturned as always, and received really positive feedback from those who came along.”
