· SFA Employment Law Conference comes to Cork on 26 September offering on the ground advice and best practice for Cork employers
· Major workplace issues of 2018 will be shared with Cork businesses to include: human error and GDPR, changes to casual contracts and managing extreme weather issues
SFA Director, Sven Spollen-Behrens outlined: “The challenges facing employers are changing all the time. Small businesses have a strong desire to create positive workplaces with their staff but struggle to keep up with the many changes in employment law obligations. Over the past year, businesses have been faced with a raft of changes from the transition to GDPR, the proposed legislative changes to casual contracts, retirement and longer working right through to managing extreme weather issues. Cork was particularly badly hit by extreme weather earlier this year and employers had to act quickly to put plans and policies in place.
“There are over 40 pieces of employment law and these continue to change rapidly in response to the changing world of work. All employers need to comply – whether they have three employees or 3,000. The content for the SFA employment law conference has been specifically designed with the small business owner in mind. Small businesses who want to have a better understanding of their obligations with practical on the ground advice should attend the SFA Employment Law Conference in the Rochestown Park Hotel on 26 September."Ends
The SFA Employment Law Conference takes place in Cork and Dublin on 26 September and 10 October respectively. Employers will get information and advice on the Workplace Relations Commission, contracts, probation and performance, absence management, discipline and dismissal, and the latest case law.
