About the Conference

Our eighth annual Employment Law Update conference drew a packed house in London and our blogger Roger Jeary was among them. To find out more about what happened at the conference, please read Roger’s blog here.

The only minor change to the programme was that Stuart Brittenden stood in for Desphal Panesar to give a talk about Age Discrimination.

Additionally, film company First Take presented the trailer for their new film Big Society the Musical, for which they are seeking donations from those who support the fight against the cuts. Click here to visit their website and watch the trailer. Or find out how you can sponsor their efforts.

You can read all of the papers and powerpoint slides presented at the event below.
