28 Jun 2022 Webinar: Birmingham UK

As we approach mid-2022, we're taking stock of the ever challenging issues organisations face together with future developments in employment law and the workplace. So far this year, we have seen efforts to reduce employee overheads making major headline news and the ESG agenda, which impacts every aspect of the workplace, becoming ever more critical. Our next series of live webinars are designed to help identify and mitigate risk, and to support successful outcomes from everyday matters to major strategic business critical plans.

Understanding, interpreting and complying with pregnancy and maternity rights in the workplace can be tricky. Employers face the challenge of managing business needs with the needs of mothers, fathers, parents and others at a time which can be stressful and emotional.

In this session we will look at the legal framework governing pregnancy and maternity rights, returning to work, redundancy, IVF and surrogacy, SMP and settlement agreements and finally proposed reform.<

As we approach mid-2022, we're taking stock of the ever challenging issues organisations face together with future developments in employment law and the workplace. So far this year, we have seen efforts to reduce employee overheads making major headline news and the ESG agenda, which impacts every aspect of the workplace, becoming ever more critical.

Implementing headcount and wage cost reduction remains a key issue for many businesses as we emerge from the pandemic into further economic uncertainty created by world events. Maintaining positive employee relations, avoiding tribunal claims penalties which undermine those key aims and minimising the risk of brand damaging adverse PR has never been so important. Hear from us on how to minimise those risks.

29 Jun 2022 Webinar: Calgary Canada

Did you know that registering your IP in Canada does not secure your rights in Japan?

In Canada, nearly half of businesses own at least one type of intellectual property (IP), and more than half of those businesses credit registering their IP rights with improving their success. Still, when businesses expand to other markets, IP protection tends to be postponed – sometimes until it is too late.

On June 29, join Gowling WLG for an exclusive webinar hosted by the Trade Commissioner Service and in collaboration with The Embassy of Canada to Japan and Shiga International Patent Office. Learn how to develop a winning global IP strategy that positions you for success in the Japanese market and safeguards your business interests.
