Join us for our Breakfast Briefing Seminar on 1st May 2019!

DC Employment Solicitors is pleased to invite you to our FREE Employment Law Breakfast Briefing at 8am on Wednesday 1st May 2019 in the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton.

Worker? Employee? Or something else?

When the courts find that:

  • a full-time Olympic cycling champion is not an employee or worker,
  • a partner in a firm of accountants, providing ‘self-employed’ accountancy services to a brewery, is an employee of the brewery,
  • a salaried partner in a firm of solicitor’s is not an employee,

and when a PhD student is claiming she is a worker – how do employers decide whether its labour force are employees, workers, or neither of them?

We’re delighted to have David Reade QC, one of the country’s leading employment law silks, as guest speaker to explain all at our next breakfast seminar.

These questions have become vital to businesses, to ensure they know what rights their labour force have, after the recent ground-breaking status cases (Uber; Pimlico Plumbers, City Sprint Couriers, etc).

David is a very engaging speaker who has (among numerous high-profile employment cases) appeared in a number of important ‘status’ cases, including acting for the former Olympic cyclist Jess Varnish against UK Sport and British Cycling.

David is described in the legal directories as being “vivacious, bold and brilliant” and “pleasingly straightforward”. If that’s not enough, he has been voted Employment Silk of the Year by both Chambers Directory and by The Legal 500.

There will also be an update on recent developments in employment law, including an important recent Court of Appeal decision on whether suspending an employee can give them unfair dismissal rights.

We hope that you can join us for an informative session, networking and bacon sandwiches!

Registration from 8am for 8.30am start. Finish at 9.30am.

Due to limited availability, please book early to avoid disappointment.

We look forward to seeing you.
