Employment and Immigration Webinar Series 2021 online

Freeths

WHEN: 23rd Mar 2021, 12:00 to 22nd Jun 2021, 13:00

WHERE: ONLINE

The landscape for workforce management and talent mobility is developing at a rapid pace. Join our Employment and Immigration experts for a series of webinars, developed specifically for anyone with responsibility for people management within their organisation. You can pick and choose to attend one, or all four webinars for free.

Long COVID: What employers need to know

Date: Tuesday 23rd March
Time: 12pm – 1pm

With over 4 million positive cases in the UK, and rising, it is only a matter of time before the impact of Long COVID seeps into the workplace. Many people who have had COVID-19 continue to experience a range of potentially debilitating symptoms for a significant time after the initial infection. A recent study has also identified that people who have suffered severe COVID-19, particularly those who were hospitalised, are at greater risk of developing mental health conditions. As larger numbers of working age individuals are affected, doctors are urging employers to prepare for the effects of Long COVID. Join us to discuss:

  • What a diagnosis of Long COVID may mean for your employees
  • Whether Long COVID is a disability under the Equality Act
  • Employee wellbeing and the legal duties
  • What support for employees suffering from Long COVID looks like

Diversity & Inclusion: Has your D&I training become ‘stale’?

Date: Thursday 29th April
Time: 12pm – 1pm

The recent prevalence of remote working means that it’s important for employers to demonstrate that they are aware of the risk of online harassment and that they’re taking steps to address it. There can be a greater risk of comments being misinterpreted, or offence taken, when operating a virtual world.

An individual can make a claim for harassment against their employer on the basis that the employer is vicariously liable for the conduct of its employees. Such claims can be defended if an organisation can show that it has taken ‘all reasonable steps’ to prevent harassment. In a recent case, the Employment Appeal Tribunal considered that an employer’s D&I policies were stale and no longer effective to prevent harassment. This is a useful reminder to employers about the importance of taking steps to promote a diverse and inclusive culture throughout their organisation. Training is just a part of the picture when it comes to promoting equalities at work. Our Employment experts will be joined by Inclusive Employers to discuss:

  • Right and responsibilities in a respectful and professional environment
  • Preventing and responding to harassment
  • Freedom of expression and online harassment
  • The legal limits of positive action in the workplace

Immigration and the associated discrimination risks

Date: Tuesday 25th May
Time: 12pm – 1pm

EU staff are vital to keep many sectors running. With the clock ticking towards the deadline for the EU Settlement Scheme, our Immigration experts bring you up to speed with the latest position and key developments. We also consider how COVID-19 travel restrictions may have affected the time spent by individuals outside of the UK, and the consequential impact on applications for leave to remain.

Immigration status throws up many thorny issues relating to recruitment practices. Although immigration status is not a protected characteristic under the Equality Act, employers still need to be mindful of the key discrimination risks which can arise when making employment and recruitment decisions related to immigration status and citizenship. Join us to discuss:

  • Latest developments in relation to the EU Settlement Scheme
  • The Home Office’s approach to managing applications
  • Immigration status and discrimination considerations

Working from ‘anywhere’ – The HR, tax and immigration issues

Date: Tuesday 22nd June
Time: 12pm – 1pm

The pandemic has demonstrated that employees can work anywhere and at any time. There are growing numbers of employees requesting to work outside of their usual country of residence and as a result some employers are considering ‘location choices’ or ‘working holidays’ as part of their company culture. Working from anywhere brings many opportunities, including a happier, healthier workforce, increased productivity, attracting and retaining talent and the potential to reduce costs. Whilst modern technology makes this logistically simple, the wider implications of such flexibility are complex. Join our experts to discuss:

  • How to deal with requests to work away from ‘base’ countries
  • Effective management of an agile workforce
  • The rights of employees working internationally
  • The tax and immigration considerations of these working arrangements

  • How to establish a patent monitoring providing invention ideas
  • Planning IP creation
  • TRIZ (theory of inventive problem solving) for technical circumvention)

Our speakers will discuss how IP can be employed to bridge that gap, they will share their experiences on how to get inventions out of R&D and introduce an approach to work on new ideas. Case examples will illustrate the 'IP creation', the 'IP harvesting' and the application of TRIZ (theory of inventive problem solving) for technical circumvention.

Who should attend

Are you interested in driving innovation and securing benefit from new developments? Do you want to improve the creation, the identification and the protection of your technology?

This course is intended for you to understand how R&D and IP can not only co-exist but also collaborate to bridge the innovation gap. It is especially designed for team members and leaders of the patent, IP and R&D department. Moreover, innovation managers will benefit from this course. Advanced participants can benchmark their knowledge by attending this course.

Attorney-Client Privilege: Don't Let It Be Your Downfall! online

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP

Join Freshfields US and European partners David LivshizLinda MartinAlison Kirby-Harris, Wolrad Prinz zu Waldeckand Jeroen van Hezewijk for an in-depth discussion centered on recent developments in the law of cross-border privilege, including by looking at a number of case studies drawn from real-life transactions and disputes that they have handled for our cross-border clients.

What may be protected by attorney-client privilege in the United States may not be protected in Europe (and, vice-versa), American strategies for managing privilege may not work (and, in fact, may be counterproductive) in Europe, and, on the other hand, conduct that has long been accepted in Europe may operate to cause a waiver of privilege under US law. Failure to appreciate these subtle cross-jurisdictional nuances may not only compromise your position in front of a court or regulator, but could even undermine your ability to execute on a long planned transaction.

Labor Law Changes On The 2021 Horizon And Beyond online

Barnes & Thornburg LLP

WHEN: June 15, 2021, 3:30 p.m.-5 p.m. (Eastern)

WHERE: ONLINE

As expected, the Biden administration has brought a flurry of changes to the legal landscape, and labor law has been no exception.

Indeed, on his very first day in office, the president terminated the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) sitting general counsel - the first time that has ever happened. That action already is impacting companies at the NLRB, and more changes are on the way. In addition, the Protecting the Right to Organize Act (the PRO Act) is working its way through Congress and the president has voiced support for the legislation. Join speakers from our labor group as they break down current happenings at the NLRB, what they expect from that agency in the months and years to come, and a primer on the PRO Act, as well as some practical strategies to consider related to that bill.

If enacted, the PRO Act would be the most significant piece of labor law legislation passed since at least the 1940s, and it would limit and/or eliminate many employers currently enjoy under the National Labor Relations Act. Buckle up, 2021 is looking to be a wild ride.

1.5 hour CLE credit pending and 1.5 hour of HRCI credit approved. This program is valid for 1.5 PDCs for the SHRM-CP® or SHRM-SCP®.

The Changing Consumer and Brand Equity - The Importance of Corporate Social Responsibility and Fair Play in a Social Media World online

Irwin Mitchell LLP

WHEN: Tuesday 15 June 2021, 11:00am - 12:00pm

WHERE: ONLINE

Consumer behaviour is constantly evolving.

Change in consumer behaviour over the past year has been unprecedented. Brand owners have had to respond and adapt to the ever-evolving demands and expectations of a COVID-era world, in which one wrong step can create a social media furore and some regrettable and enduring hashtags.

The accepted wisdom is that sustainability, localism, employee welfare, and all-round good ethical conduct and fair play have become much more important to consumers, and key to building consumer trust and loyalty. Get it right and social media will love you. Get it wrong, and you risk becoming a social media pariah whose fortunes will reflect that.

But does that accepted wisdom bear scrutiny?
 
Join us for the first of a series of Changing Consumer live broadcasts where we will be joined by Rachel Bower of Engine MHP and Sarah Webster of Britvic GB. Our panel will bring the perspectives of the brand owner, the PR specialist, and the lawyer, to the following issues:
 
•       Corporate Social Responsibility: if a product is the right price and convenient, how much does sustainability and ethical sourcing matter to consumers?
•       #FreeCuthbert and trial by social media: how do (and how should) the prospects of trial by social media impact brand-owners’ strategies when considering how best to police and enforce their intellectual property rights?
 
We hope you can join us.
