A conference in Jersey and Guernsey in November will explore workplace culture from the perspective of employment law specialists in both islands.
Walkers is holding the conference in Jersey on Tuesday 12 November and in Guernsey the following day, to examine workplace culture, and specifically what it means, why it matters and what it can cost employers if it goes wrong.
Employment law specialists from Walkers’ Jersey, Guernsey and Ireland offices will speak at the event – along with Clare Murray, managing partner of CM Murray LLP and specialist adviser to the House of Commons Women & Equalities Committee in respect of its Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Inquiry.
Partner Louise Hall, who leads Walkers’ Channel Islands employment law team, said: “A lot of what is said and written about workplace culture is vague and hard to define, but there are very real and practical implications when it goes wrong, which HR teams and in-house lawyers have to deal with every day.
“This event is all about the intersection between workplace culture and the various stands of employment law, and we are particularly pleased to have Clare Murray joining us to share her experiences as specialist adviser to the House of Commons inquiry into sexual harassment in the workplace.
“We have tailored this event not just at the HR professionals and General Counsel who deal with workplace culture issues, but also senior leaders and directors who need a clearer idea of where this issue as a whole sits on their risk registers.”
The events are free, anyone interested can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to attend.
The events take place at:
- 8 am, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 – Rocco Tower Radisson Blu, Jersey
- 8 am, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 – Duke of Richmond Hotel, Guernsey
