City firms keep pace with changes in employment law

The abolition of employment tribunal fees and gender pay gap reporting both came under the spotlight at the seminar, which was attended by more than 60 HR professionals from across the City.
The event – part of the Page Personnel 2017 seminar programme – included an in-depth discussion about the impact on the gig economy of a Government-backed report into modern working practices, which was authored by so-called ‘employment tsar’, Matthew Taylor.

Thrings partner Jeremy Nixon, and solicitor Maria Krishnan,also spoke about payments for voluntary overtime in the context of holiday pay calculations, and how the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – which comes into force on 25 May 2018 – will affect the way employees’ data is collected and used.

Jeremy said: “There has been a raft of developments in employment case law and policy over recent months, and the seminar aimed to provide employers with an opportunity to fully understand their obligations and responsibilities.

“Thrings is very pleased to have delivered this seminar in partnership with Page Personnel, an organisation which has been providing specialist recruitment services to the professional services sector for more than a quarter of a century.”
