How to navigate offshoring, territorial jurisdiction and employment status
During this evening seminar, chaired by Akash Nawbatt, three experts from our highly respected employment team offer their insight on three topical issues relevant to every employment practitioner’s practice:
- Offshoring, redundancies and TUPE: easy to navigate or a legal minefield?
How can you avoid Tribunal claims when offshoring? Should the transferor dismiss redundant UK employees or should the transfer take place with a subsequent ETO dismissal of redundant employees by the transferee? Who is responsible for fair consultation, transferor or transferee? Thomas Cordrey, fresh from the Tribunal battlefield, will provide the answers.
- Territorial jurisdiction: recent decisions and distinctions
A decade after Serco v Lawson, the territorial reach of the Employment Tribunal remains a ripe arena for litigation. Jesse Crozier will examine how far the “reach” question has moved on in the past decade; look at current areas of controversy and identify key battlegrounds for the future.
- Recent developments in employment status
Correct categorisation of a workforce is vitally important from both an employment and tax compliance perspective. Chris Stone draws on his practical experience of advising in both areas when exploring the recent developments in the fast-evolving jurisprudence, including the Supreme Court decisions on vicarious liability and the very recent Court of Appeal judgment in Windle.
