Get the Legal Lowdown, a new webinar on Employment Law from Watson Martin Partnership – live on 16 May at 12.30 GMT

Latest hot topic in successful HR Learning Bites series

Leading training and qualifications provider Watson Martin Partnership today announced the second free information webinar in its successful HR Learning Bites series to help HR practitioners keep abreast of the latest issues in the industry.

Employment Law is the next hot topic to go under the spotlight and the online event, entitled Get the Legal Lowdown, will go out live on Wednesday 16 May at 12.30 GMT. It follows WMP’s highly popular Unlocking the Black Box webinar in March which reviewed the CIPD’s ground-breaking research into understanding how HR drives business performance.

Practical hints and tips from our ‘legal eagle’

2018 is already proving to be a landmark year for employment law and the webinar is set to be an information packed session covering all the top priorities for HR professionals. With the introduction of GDPR later this month, the Taylor review and gender pay reporting, not to mention Brexit, the event will provide lots of useful practical tips and advice from WMP’s resident ‘legal eagle’ Melinda Allison.

The discussion, hosted by WMP’s L&D specialist, Joseph Grech, will last for around 20 minutes after which there will be an opportunity for questions. The webinar will be recorded and will be available for a short time to watch on thewebsiteafter which it will form part of a library of information videos on our Virtual Learning Environment.

“This time of year is always a hectic time for HR professionals with new and amended employment laws taking effect but with uncertainty around Brexit and the introduction of a massive new piece of legislation from the EU around data protection later this month, we all have much to take on board. This webinar will provide up-to-the-minute advice on employment law and the issues that practitioners need to be aware of in the coming months. There will be an opportunity for those listening to ask questions and we are expecting it to be a lively session,” said Melinda Allison, who delivers employment law workshops and supports WMP candidates throughout all levels of CIPD HR qualifications.

HR Learning Bites is the inspiration of WMP Managing Partner Melanie Martin who wants the series to provide practical tips and advice for anyone working in the HR and L&D profession.  Topics scheduled for the future include:  Line Managers as Leaders and Getting a Return on your HR Investment.

All the webinars are free to register for a place and will be available on a first come first served basis. Please click here to reserve your free place now.
