Employment Law Focus Protect & Defend 
20 October 2016
Eastwood Park Conference Centre
9:30 to 15:00

Taking a broad approach to the HR landscape, this seminar looks at the most important current risks to your business, particularly in the areas around security of information, competition and reputation. We will help you to assess your vulnerabilities and prioritise action to protect your most vital assets. During the session we wll be looking at:
Data protection from an HR perspective. What does the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation mean for the Employment Practices Code and for your operational data practices?
Freedom of Information Act. An update on the FOIA regime and dealing with requests. When can you refuse, what should you tell them, and what happens if you dont?
Confidential information and ex-employees: are your contracts fit for purpose in the information age? What can you expect to be able to safeguard, and are you really as well-protected as you think you are?
An update on the latest thinking around restrictive covenants and how to draft restrictive covenants to best protect your business.
Is there a (commercial) life beyond  restrictive covenants? Practical and affordable ways to minimise the competitive threat from employees, both during their employment and on departure. Here we will look at what strategies HR can adopt to ensure that employees are not tempted to compete.
Social media the hot topic that isntt going  away. How far can you control your employees use of social media and what actions are available when it goes wrong?

This is a half-day session followed by a buffet lunch. During the day you will get plenty of opportunity to meet our senior, specialist lawyers and put them to the test with your questions. Our aim is to offer fresh, incisive content in a style which is  approachable, flexible and (hopefully) as pain-free as possible. We would love to see you there.
