There was a full house last week as employers and HR professionals from across the South East gathered for the CIPD Employment Law Update breakfast in The Woodlands Hotel.

The event – sponsored by the South East’s leading recruitment provider Hartley People – featured guest speaker Robert Jacob who provided a clear concise overview of the challenges facing employers under Irish Employment Law.

Mary Connaughton (Director of CIPD Ireland) opened the event and welcomed the attendees from all corners of the South East. Mary spoke on the changing landscape for HR professionals and the workplace in 2016.

Robert discussed the Paternity Leave and Benefit Act 2016 along with the challenges of zero hour contracts and social media use in the work place.

CIPD South East gives businesses in the region the opportunity to work together to champion work and employment through providing networking opportunities and informative events to support its members and the business community.
