• In the first Brachers Bitesize webinar of the year, employment law experts Colin Smith and Abigail Brightwell review several recent key employment law cases and legislative changes that employers should be aware of.

    Webinar content

    The speakers take a look ahead to changes, known or speculated for 2022. These include landmark decisions on gender identity, discrimination law and unfair dismissal law.

    Key issues of consideration covered in the webinar, include:

    • Anticipated new case law on ‘no jab, no job’ policies and other COVID-related employment issues
    • Significant increases to national minimum/living wage rates
    • A potential new Employment Bill (based on commitments made in 2019) including potential (modest) changes to flexible working law and possible changes to discrimination harassment laws

    In addition, with an extra bank holiday for the Queen’s Jubilee, the speakers cover whether your employees will be entitled to take this as holiday.

    And on a broader basis, whether new EU whistleblowing laws are likely to have an indirect impact of UK businesses with European arms, and whether new EU laws on work-life balance are likely to influence changes in UK law in the coming year.

    Who should watch?

    HR professionals, business owners and those in management or senior leadership positions within their organisation.
