  • Apprenticeships - potential pitfalls and how to avoid them

    If you’ve taken on apprentices, or are about to, this course will equip you with the knowledge and help you navigate the sometimes complex world of apprenticeships, and highlight some potential issues and pitfalls to avoid.
  • Austrian employment law training

    Although there are similarities, it is dangerous to consider the German and Austrian employment law systems to be one and the same. Austrian law is distinct in many ways, most importantly in relation to probationary periods, the termination of employment contracts and severance. There are also sufficient differences in contract law to make the use of one model employment contract, for German and Austrian employees, a potentially expensive error for employers.
  • Belgian employment law training

    An employer could terminate an employee with immediate effect via WhatsApp or even verbally. There is no concept of garden leave in Belgium. No obligation to set up a performance improvement plan in case of under performance. Language is key – if the documents are drafted in the wrong social language, the documents may be considered null and void.
  • Central and Eastern European (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania) employment law training

    The Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries have distinctive employment law frameworks which an increasing number of HR practitioners and in-house lawyers must come to terms with.
  • Collective labor, trade unions and industrial relations - UK law and best practice

    Whether unionised or not, collective labor and employee relations are an important part of many organisations, in both the private and public sectors, with engaged employees underpinning a productive and positive workplace.
  • Cross border working - international remote working and international assignments

    As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic remote working has become far more wide spread. In the past when employees worked in another jurisdiction it was usually as part of an international assignment initiated by the employer.
  • Current developments in employment law

    Join our experienced employment lawyers online for an update on mental health at work, including practical strategies for supporting employees. Stress, depression or anxiety accounted for around a half of all cases of self-reported work-related ill health in 2021/22 and has been increasing in recent years – a trend which may continue given current cost of living pressures.
  • Diversity and inclusion conference - intergenerational fairness

    Intergenerational fairness has increasingly become a focus area for employers with the pandemic highlighting perceived inequalities and the need to address generational issues in employment strategies.
  • Dutch employment law training

    Employee rights are well protected under Dutch law, especially in dismissal cases, but employers are able to swiftly adjust staff levels in their company due to changes in, for example a fluctuation in workload. A wide variety of options are available for employers to hire people in a flexible manner provided that the rules are used properly.
