The legal landscape and how it affects the workplace is often complex and constantly evolving. This one-day workshop will bring learners up to date with recent changes in case law and legislation and highlight future developments. It provides interaction with a specialist to:

  • deepen knowledge, update thinking and refresh skills
  • sharpen practice in applying evidence-based solutions
  • stay at the forefront of the latest thinking on the ever-changing legal landscape in the world of work
  • recognise, explore and hypothesise emerging trends.

The engaging workshop content will vary, depending on what is topical, helping busy people professionals to maintain their expertise and specialism in a legal area of people practice. Learners will have the opportunity to explore examples, share thoughts and consider the impact that legal changes will have on their own organisation. The workshop also includes a workbook to help learners to be able to support or lead effective implementation of changes back in the workplace.
