Labour Relations Agency Public Meeting to Explore Link Between Good Employment Relations and a Strong Economy
The link between harmonious, productive workplaces and a thriving economy is the theme of the Labour Relations Agency’s annual public meeting on Thursday 25 October in Belfast’s Radisson Blu Hotel at 11.30am.
The Labour Relations Agency is inviting employers in the North West to come to a free breakfast event on 30 January 2019 at 80/81 Ebrington Square, L’Derry.
This seminar is a perfect introduction to the essentials of employment law.
As visitor numbers to the Causeway Coast and Glens continue to rise each year, local businesses employ large numbers of seasonal staff and, with The 148th Open Championship taking place in July, more staff than ever will be required to service the needs of the increased number of visitors.
This briefing is intended to give participants an overview of the main differences between employment law in Northern Ireland as compared with Great Britain. Employment law is a devolved matter in Northern Ireland and in recent years reforms that have occurred in GB have not been replicated in NI thus creating several distinct differences in core areas of employment law such as unfair dismissal and the law as it relates to trade unions and industrial action. Some areas of employment law may possibly be reformed in 2018 and this briefing will also touch upon these areas.
Employers in the Causeway Coast and Glens area, who plan to hire seasonal staff during the 148th British Open golf tournament, are invited to attend a free event jointly hosted by the Labour Relations Agency (LRA) and local Council.
Mark McAllister from the Labour Relations Agency and Scott Alexander from Legal Island discussed the top 10 employment cases of the year, including any updates since our Annual Review of Employment Law conferences in November.
