05 Oct 2022 Webinar: London UK

The delivery of advertising has undergone a digital transformation in the last 20 years. Digital media is now at the heart of any successful campaign, and advertisers and agencies are increasingly dependent on ad-tech platforms to deliver online advertising and ensure that it reaches the desired audience.

While the online advertising ecosystem has thrived, it is now under ever increasing pressures, including cost, technology and privacy & regulatory challenges. As a result, the world of adtech is becoming tricky to navigate. Our experts at Lewis Silkin regularly advise across the full spectrum of the ecosystem, from the advertisers and agencies that drive the campaign, to the publishers that deliver online advertising to their users, as well as the ad-tech vendors that sit in-between.

This session is intended to share some of their insight and will discuss the latest trends, legal update and technology developments to help you navigate this increasingly difficult area.

With constant changes in regulations and the differing trends that affect the public – alcoholic brands need to be versatile and flexible to keep ahead of market trends, while staying compliant with the ASA.

Alcohol ads often attract attention from various campaigning organisations who challenge any perceived weakness in compliance, so ASA investigations in this sector are common. There have been recent changes to liberalise the rules for advertising low alcohol brands, but at the same time there are increasing concerns about the use of influencers and targeting.

We will look further into the current challenges faced by this sector and the hot button issues for the ASA.

The legal and regulatory challenges that apply to alcohol marketing. In this session, we’ll focus on the following:

  • What are the key principles and rules?
  • What can we learn from recent ASA decisions?
  • What are the latest regulatory changes?
  • What have we spotted on the horizon?
06 Oct 2022 Roundtable: Hong Kong Hong Kong

In our latest session for HR professionals and in-house legal counsel, we will be considering how the Hong Kong courts have extended the implied duties in employment contracts owed by employers and employees, and in particular the implied “anti-avoidance term”.

In this virtual roundtable, we will be covering the following:

  • The implied terms in employment contracts owed by employers and employees including common law duties, such as the duty of mutual trust and confidence, the employee’s duty of fidelity and good faith, and the implied “anti-avoidance” term.
  • The circumstances in which a claim can be brought for breach of the implied term of mutual trust and confidence.
  • How an employee’s duty of fidelity and good faith can work alongside or instead of restrictive covenants relating to poaching employees, team moves, soliciting clients, etc.

The engagement landscape of today is markedly different to what we had several years ago – and use of third party staffing suppliers, known as employment businesses, is on the up.

Changes to the IR35 tax rules mean increased exposure for end user employers, driving many to avoid freelancers and seek alternative engagement models instead. There is a greater wish for flexibility from employees on how and where they work, which brings employment and tax law complications from working abroad. Businesses may also be looking to expand into new territories where they don’t have a presence. These are some of the reasons why it might be attractive to use a third party to employ your staff.

Employment businesses, umbrellas and employers of record are all potential solutions - but they need careful thought, as the supply of labour is governed by a strict regulatory regime with potentially hefty liabilities for getting things wrong.

Did you know that 1 in 5 of us will be affected by disability at some point in our lives?

There are approximately 14.1 million disabled people in the UK – far more than you might realise. Typically, we think of a wheelchair user but many people are also living with invisible disabilities and have much wider access needs than we might realise. In recognition of International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December, we are running an online event to challenge our perception of disability. We will discuss what steps an employer can take to create more awareness for those impacted directly and indirectly, whether employees, visitors or those applying for a job and how the introduction of a disability passport can make a real difference.
