Join Shepherd and Wedderburn this March at our Employment Law update seminars hosted in partnership with Hudson, the recruitment specialists.

Employment status is the current hot-topic. With the likes of Uber and Pimlico Plumbers hitting the headlines, and the emergence of the so-called “gig economy” it is clear that the landscape is changing. In this session we will consider the law as we know it, question the relevance of ‘employee’ and ‘worker’ status and look ahead to what legal changes may be afoot.

Topics include:

  • Employment status: what we thought we knew
  • Blurred lines: recent case law and the 'gig economy'
  • The future of employment status: Government review and legal commentary


The full programme will be confirmed to registered delegates prior to the seminar.
7:45 am    Registration and refreshments
8:00 am    Presentations and Q&As
9:00 am    Discussion ends followed by networking


This seminar will be of interest to those working in HR, anyone with people responsibilities or in-house Counsel with an interest in Employment Law.
