Brush up on employment law at Barnstaple seminar

Joseph Bulmer

Free event will advise firms of new changes to legislation

LOCAL businesses are invited to attend a free seminar about important changes to employment and health and safety laws.

The event, taking place at the Barnstaple Hotel next Thursday from 9.30am to 12.45pm, is being hosted by employment law firm Peninsula.

Latest figures show employment tribunal claims rose by 56 per cent last year. In addition, research highlighted that 76 per cent of UK employers were not competent in all aspects of employment law.

The Peninsula seminar will advise employers on the best way to implement the new Equality Act legislation within their business while providing practical advice and guidance.

Peter Done, managing director of Peninsula, said: “Employers are wasting a lot of valuable time dealing with red tape, which is affecting their performance as a business because they cannot fully focus on their core competencies. “The seminar will advise employers on how to cut through the minefield and avoid being prosecuted, saving time and money.”
