‘Must-attend’ employment event returns for 2021
An annual employment law event which is regarded as a must-attend for people working in HR and employment across the region is returning to being held in person for 2021.
The Annual Employment Law Update is one of the key events in the North East for its insight into employment law, reviewing the past 12 months and the current situation facing businesses, as well as what is likely to lie ahead.
The event, held by Sintons has been held for a number of years and is regularly over-subscribed. Last year’s event was held online due to the COVID-19 restrictions, meaning a record number of people were able to attend.
This year, it is returning to being held in-person on October 7, and will be one of the first opportunities for employment and HR professionals from throughout the North East to gather after the lifting of restrictions.
“The past 12 months have been some of the most challenging many businesses have ever faced, with the vast majority being forced to make some variation to their traditional employment situation through furlough leave, changing working patterns or making redundancies,” says Keith.
“The challenges have been many, but the way businesses have coped and adapted has been fantastic. We’ve been by the side of many throughout the period, supporting them through what has been a very fast-changing situation.
“As well as reviewing this period, we will look at the current situation and what lies ahead for businesses, sharing our insight into how they can be best prepared for that from an employment perspective.
“We look forward to again hosting one of the most popular events in our calendar, and particularly to welcoming people back in-person.”
* The Annual Employment Law Update is being held on October 7 from 8am to 10.30am at the Newcastle Eagles’ Vertu Motors Arena, Scotswood Road, Newcastle, NE4 7AF. To book a place at the event, click here.
