EVENT: Corporate Members' Lunch: Lewis Silkin on Employment, Visas and Data Protection

Date: 17th October, 2014 Time: 01:00 pm - 02:30 pm
Corporate Members' Lunch: Lewis Silkin on Employment, Visas and Data Protection

The briefing took place on 17 October over lunch at the ABA's offices in Upper Grosvenor Street. 

Andrew Osborne, Christopher Hitchins and Jonathan Carr, all partners with Lewis Silkin, addressed three main issues:

how employers should respond to discrimination claims brought against them by employees,

the recent changes to the UK's investor visa scheme (announced the day before the lunch!) and conditions recently attached to employment visas, and

how companies can ensure that they are complying with the provisions of the UK's laws on data protection and bribery, and how they can ensure that will be protected, even if employees engage in improper actions. 

The photograph shows Christopher Hitchins speaking to Charbel Khazen, SVP and manager of Gulf International Bank's London branch. In the background are Mokhtar El Shennawi, Deputy Managing Director of National Bank of Egypt UK, and Kevin Holt, head of HR, marketing and communications at Europe Arab Bank.
