Employment Seminar, Manchester (2 October 2018)

Recent reports have shown that there's been an increase in the number of equal pay claims against employers, particularly since companies had to release their gender pay gap reports. So is this an opportunity for greater transparency in the world of employment and working practices, and how should employers react at this critical time?

To help answer this question we're delighted to announce Jelf's latest fun and informative event in Manchester. Our excellent speakers and subject matter include:

  • A look at Diversity & Inclusion in the workplace with Josh Willacy
  • An update on all the key Employment Law changes from Simon Horsfield
  • A review of the complex and changing world of Employee Benefits with Mark Winstanley

This is sure to be an important, necessary and enlightening session for all.

And of course we have another excellent venue for our delegates to enjoy! This time we’re at Lancashire Cricket Club in Manchester. Founded in 1864 as a successor to Manchester Cricket Club, Lancashire play their matches at Old Trafford. A world-class international sporting stadium, Old Trafford steeped in history. Generations have witnessed memorable moments through sport, entertainment and business for over 150 years.

The venue also offers delegates free car parking and is accessible via public transport links.
