Sydney Mitchell Employment Masterclass

The Employment Masterclass was a private audience with three leading Employment experts. Norman Rea of Sydney Mitchell invited employers to address their employment concerns in an open Q&A session. The event was held at Solihull College, Blossomfield Campus and was free of charge.

Employers were asked

"If you are faced with making employment decisions, what dangers do you face as a result of your actions?"

Our legal experts and guest speakers shared their experience, opening up the world of employment and highlted the pitfalls to be avoided at all costs.

Delegates attending the Sydney Mitchell Masterclass were invited to put their questions to the panel on age discrimination, taxation problems on termination payments and awards of damages and compensation, plus were able to quiz Norman Rea on the minefield of the growing world of Facebook, LinkedIn and the social network explosion.

Don't pay the price of getting it wrong.  A larger number of businesses came along to speak to the experts putting a wide variety of questions about their concerns on the three hot topics.
