Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

14th November – Swansea
South West Wales – Employment Law Update/GDPR


Speakers: Helen Iles, Senior Associate / Head of Training and Rhiannon Dale, Associate – Hugh James

Employment law update

In the ever-changing world of employment law, Hugh James will provide an update on recent key HR cases and legislative developments, as well as giving us an insight into things to come. Delegates will gain awareness of the commercial impact of the latest decisions as well as an understanding of important changes on the horizon, and practice advice on the steps they can take to plan for these new arrangements

GDPR – If you want peace, prepare for war…

So was the advice of Roman Vegetius before the fall of the Roman Empire, and so too is this the advice of Helen Iles, regarding the new rules set to hit all UK businesses in May 2018. Amending the current data protection rules, the GDPR has the potential to further muddy the already murky waters of data management for organisations, unless they are fully prepared for its arrival and ready to deal with its impact. Whilst some data management requirements stay the same, the GDPR requires other things to be done differently and other duties are imposed for the first time. Attend this session to ensure that your organisation is forewarned and forearmed, and in a position to defend itself against the new maximum 20 million Euro fine.

WHEN: 14th November
