Event: Employment Law Update 2017

Employment law is changing...

These free breakfast seminars will give delegates an overview of the most important changes in employment law and those due to come into effect in the near future.


Attending one of these seminars will give those in charge of staff time to plan for the changes in a proactive manner and to confidently deal with any staff issues as and when they arise.

We will be running two seminars, one at Parc Menai in Bangor on 16th March, as well as one in Porth Eirias in Colwyn Bay on the 28th March. Details for each and the booking links can be found below.
