In this session, we will explore some of the most common AI tools, what they are, how they work and what they can do.  We will also look at what AI means for HR and in-house legal teams, the benefits and risks and how businesses can harness the opportunities whilst navigating the key employment law considerations. 

13:00 - 14:00 Lunch

You will have the choice of attending breakout session A or B:

Session A: Compliance Conundrums

With the latest changes to the National Minimum Wage, a new focus on competition and market power in the UK labour market as well as changes to immigration laws, we are seeing a significant increase in compliance issues for businesses.  This interactive session will look at the compliance challenges for employers and provide support and tips on how to handle them.

Session B: International perspectives: Hot topics in a global workplace

This panel session will examine some key topics from across Europe which may impact businesses in the UK from pay transparency to atypical workers and agency workers. We will explore what we can learn from other jurisdictions and consider what employers can do to prepare for changes which will have pan-European implications for business.  

15:15 - 16:30 The role of ethics in the business of law and changing workplace culture

The way in which business leaders and their advisers can undermine the rule of law has been under increased scrutiny from government to regulators and more broadly in the media.  For example, silencing claimants through the misuse of NDAs or representing likely wrongdoers in a way that supports their continued wrongdoing.  In this session we will explore ethical advising, why it matters, the risks of getting it wrong and how to address the issues and change attitudes.  We are also delighted to welcome Jo Smedley, co-founder of Zest Learning, a professional leadership development consultancy, to talk about transformational change and how to bring the board along with you.  

16:30 Closing words, followed by afternoon tea.
