  • Seminar to address impact of Brexit for employers

    The employment team at law firm Andrew Jackson Solicitors LLP will host a seminar in York this month (25 May), which will cover all the latest developments in employment law, including the possible changes to UK employment law following the result of the Brexit vote.

    Leading the presentation is Jonathan Dale, partner and head of employment law at Andrew Jackson, who said: – “Although Article 50 has been triggered, we are only at the beginning of what are set to be very lengthy and complex negotiations, including the shape of employment law for years to come. Amongst the many concerns of our clients are the potential implications for UK employers arising from future restrictions on European free movement of workers and what action can be taken now in anticipation of future changes.

    “We will consider various scenarios with the aim of ensuring that business owners and those with HR responsibilities are armed with the best possible information in relation to key employment law developments, with a special focus on the potential changes to UK employment law in the aftermath of the Brexit vote.”

    Joining Andrew Jackson’s employment team is guest speaker Derek Carter, chief executive of Portakabin, the York-based market-leading modular building innovator, who will touch upon his organisation’s ethos, as well as the importance of manufacturing, innovation, international trade and community outreach within this leading manufacturing business.

    Said Jonathan: – “I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to Derek Carter, who leads a highly successful and iconic business that operates in seven countries and employs more than 1,700 people.  Delegates will be able to hear about Portakabin’s ambitious plans for the future as well as how it continues to innovate and grow across a wide range of industries, particularly in light of future challenges posed by Brexit.”

    Recognised as a top ranked employment law firm in the region by leading law directory Chambers and Partners, the employment team will be available to answer delegates’ queries following the event.

    The breakfast seminar will take place on 25 May at Middlethorpe Hall in York. Whilst free to attend, places are limited and may be reserved by emailing events@andrewjackson.co.uk or contacting Sarah Liversedge on (01482) 601307.
