About the Conference

This event will be the first IER conference to take place after the general election, providing an excellent opportunity to assess the government’s programme of work. How will worker’s rights fair under a new regime? Which labour law topics will trade unionists need to be aware of in order to best protect their members at work?

There are some issues of course that will remain important regardless of who wins the election – health and safety and pensions being just two. Developments relating to both will be outlined and analysed by expert speakers at this event.

We will also hear from other experts – academics, lawyers and trade unionists – on new cases relating to both whistle blowing and victimisation of trade unionists. And a leading trade unionist will share his experiences and suggestions on the role trade unions play in delivering workplace learning.

Joining our platform for the first time will be a group of psychologists researching the psychological costs of austerity. They will focus on how this manifests itself in the workplace and what trade unionists can do to monitor alleviate and assit those suffering from austerity linked problems at work
