Employment Law Issues for new businesses – Workshop

Howells Solicitors

05 Jun, 2018

At the Business & IP Centre, Sheffield Central Library, 13 July 2018, 10am-12pm

If you are beginning to think about starting a business or if you have started a business, it is important to be aware of how employment law can impact upon you. As a new business, the last thing you want is an employment dispute setting you back or taking your time away from your business – whether this is with your former employer or with any staff you choose to take on.

Having an understanding of employment law and a solid grounding for taking on staff, will offer you a level of protection as a new business.

Howells Solicitors will be presenting a workshop for new businesses and those taking the first steps towards starting their own business, addressing employment law issues that should be considered.

The workshop will cover:

• Things to consider if you are still in employment while setting up your business including duties of commitment, loyalty and confidentiality towards your existing employer

• The impact of restrictive covenants or post termination restrictions in your contract of employment, on your ability to start a new business i.e. what limitations there may be on you working in competition with your employer or in working with your former contacts, suppliers or clients.

• Working with staff – do you want an employee, a contractor, casual workers – the differences between these and your obligations in engaging into a working relationship with them

• Data protection (GDPR) obligations in relation to staff details, mailing lists, customer details etc

• Discrimination law and how this affects you as a business in the context of employing staff and providing services to the public
