An event to help Guernsey finance firms understand a range of employment law issues will uncover the work of the ultimate ‘rogue’ workplace.
The Guernsey Training Agency (GTA) is partnering with Carey Olsen to hosting an interactive half-day conference.
It will explore the role of integrity in the modern employment relationship with a particular focus on the financial services sector through the use of speaker role-play, group discussion and short presentations.
Carey Olsen partner Advocate Elaine Gray said: “This conference will appeal to senior management and HR professionals due to the exceptional speakers and the highly practical role-play exercises, which will give memorable insights into the way that the core obligation of integrity in the employment relationship plays out in practice and how to manage risks arising from that obligation.”
Delegates will explore a fictional scenario following a potential rogue employee’s increasingly unscrupulous behaviour involving tax-evasion and one of their foreign clients, compounded by other unacceptable workplace conduct.
The audience will participate in key decisions throughout the scenario to determine how the employer should proceed and ultimately whether the employee should be dismissed or not.
In addition to Advocate Gray, speakers include Carey Olsen employment partner Mark Dunster, together with Simon Gaudion, Director of Enforcement Division at the Guernsey Financial Services Commission, Vijay Rathour, Head of Digital Forensics at Grant Thornton and Peter Woodward, who heads up the Guernsey Employment and Discrimination Tribunal Service.
They will explore topics such as disciplinary investigations and procedures, obtaining and using computer evidence, managing regulatory issues, unfair dismissal risks and potential criminal proceedings.
The conference takes place on Wednesday 24 January 2018 at St Pierre Park Hotel from 8am until 12.30pm. Places can be booked here.
