Changes to employment legislation in the aftermath of the independence referendum will be up for discussion at a human resources (HR) conference in Aberdeen next month.
The Employment Law Conference, organised by Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce in association with three law firms, will provide HR professionals with an update on legislation.
Experts from the law firms – Burness Paull LLP, Pinsent Masons LLP and Simpson & Marwick – will also provide advice on how to deal with flexible working requests and the implications of new retirement flexibilities.
Simpson & Marwick partner Sandy Kemp said: “The vote in the referendum does not mean that there will be no change, only different change. Some of that is known, but much is yet to be revealed.
“At the event, I will try and set out what the changes will be and how they may impact on employers.”
The conference will feature advice from employment law specialist Toni McAlindin, as well as workshops for delegates to focus on issues such as flexible working and shared paternal leave.
It will take place at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Thursday, November 6.
