Employment Law Update – Trends, Developments and What to Look Out For in 2019

Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 07:45 to 09:30
Legal Island Training Centre, Island House, 5 Steeple Road, Antrim, BT41 1DN

CO3 has joined with corporate sponsors Legal Island and their friends at the Labour Relations Agency to provide an opportunity for CO3 members to receive an update on employment law developments. This is an ideal catch-up for CEOs and other senior staff to consider key employment risks facing the third sector and to make appropriate plans.

Mark McAllister, Senior Employment Relations Manager at the LRA, and Scott Alexander, Head of L&D at Legal Island, will provide a round-up for you on the latest changes and proposed changes, trends and case law decisions on matters including:


  • Sleep-in allowances – the Mencap case being appealed to the UK Supreme Court could result in a £400m bill for the care sector
  • The employer’s vicarious liability for criminal acts by employees
  • Agency workers – assessing equal treatment on a term-by-term approach
  • Holiday pay – calculations for part-time workers
  • Precautionary suspension of employees pending investigation – is it a breach of contract?
  • Legal advice privilege – how private is your correspondence with your legal advisers?
  • Disciplinary processes – must these be put on hold pending criminal proceedings?
  • Equality and best-practice developments – Gender Pay Gap reporting; Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs); redundancy protection for new parents; D&I training; reasonable adjustments in the workplace


There will be ample time to ask questions at the event:
