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