Fredericka Sheppard Speaking at The HR and Employment Law Conference 2022

Fredericka Sheppard will be speaking at The HR and Employment Law Conference 2022 organised by CMG Events about ‘Sick leave and sick pay- Changes in the law’.

The last 2 years has seen a significant shift in the way we work, with employers required to adapt to the new and different ways of working. This has come with many new issues in employment law with new changes on sick leave, the introduction of a statutory Right to Request Remote Work, and imminent changes to equality legislation. This conference will explore all these issues, as well as important HR considerations such as disciplinary action, gender pay gap reporting, developing organisational and personal resilience, The Transparency at Work Directive, the 4-day week -Key considerations for employers and the topic of menopause in the workplace.

This HR and Employment Law Conference is a unique live virtual event from our own custom-built CMG Studios. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with attendees praising the additional interactive elements, as well as increased Q&A opportunities throughout the day, giving you more opportunity to gain real practical insights on the key issues that are important to you.
