Join Cheadles LLP lawyers Jordan Lester and Jeremy Kirk for valuable legal updates.
Jeremy will start us off with an informative presentation on the employee vs contractor legal distinction. This is becoming more common-place in the post-covid work-from-home era. It is critical that HR and business professionals understand the distinction before entering into a working relationship as the misclassification of an employee as a contractor can have serious financial consequences.
Then grab your coffee and get set for Jordan Lester hosting an employment law gameshow called “is it enforceable”? This will explore the minefield of whether a termination clause in an employment contract will be enforced by a Court.
The topics that will be covered include:
- Update on developments from the Courts
- Understanding the contractor versus employee distinction
- The post-Covid landscape for employee relations
- The enforceability of termination clauses
- Common law notice periods
This session will help HR practitioners function as strategic business partner by better understanding the employee versus contractor legal distinction, how to set more enforceable termination clauses in employment contracts, and how to proactively manage employment relationships to mitigate legal risk.
