Travlaw Partner with ABTA for an Employment Workshop

Travlaw Partner with ABTA for an Employment Workshop – 17th October 2018, London

Travlaw and the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) will agree that Employment law is constantly changing. It’s vital that travel employers keep up-to-date with these changes to ensure they are compliant with new legislation and able to handle the realities of today’s workplace. Gender pay gap reporting, the Posted Workers Directive, GDPR, and #MeToo, leading to raised awareness of sexual harassment in the workplace, are just a few of the latest developments to impact travel industry employers.

Travlaw are partnering with ABTA to provide a practical workshop which will provide up-to-date and accurate advice on employment law and how you can apply legal principles at work.

Attend this event to ensure you have effective policies and processes covering data protection, holidays, working hours and pay, equality, diversity, discipline and grievance, employment tribunals and more. This workshop is designed for those who have responsibility for HR decision making within a travel organisation, including HR teams, legal teams and senior managers with operational and strategic responsibilities.
