Vital employment law changes for local businesses 

Businesses in Kent can learn more about a host of sweeping changes to employment law at a workshop by law firm Furley Page. 

The Employment Law Update 2017-18 event, run in partnership with Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday 18 October, will explain how these proposed changes will impact on local businesses. Under the spotlight will be the likely increase in claims following the abolition of Employment Tribunal fees and proposals to extend rights to workers in the gig economy. 

The workshop, which is open to chamber members and non-members whatever the size of their workforce, will be led by Andrew Masters, Partner and Head of Employment at Furley Page, who said: "We will consider everything from new employment protection proposals following the Taylor Review to cyber-security issues linked to the new General Data Protection Regulations. 

"As well as practical guidance, there will be Q&A sessions so there's plenty of opportunity for delegates to raise issues of concern."

Andrew will be joined by Amanda Okill, a Senior Associate who specialises in employment law. Both are part of the Furley Page's Employment Team, which is recommended by the independent legal guides Chambers UK and The Legal 500.
