Norman Lamb MP to discuss future of workplace law at CIPD conference

CIPD Employment Law Conference, London, 3 July 2012

Norman Lamb, the Government’s Minister for Employment Relations, will speak at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)’s annual Employment Law conference this summer.

The Minister, who worked as an employment lawyer before election to parliament, is due to discuss the workplace legal landscape, including likely direction of employment law within the next year, the effect on working practices, and the changing legal relationship between employer and employee.

Mike Emmott, the CIPD’s employment relations adviser, comments: “We’re delighted that Mr Lamb will speak at our conference for the first time. We are currently going through a very interesting time when some quite far-reaching proposals for reforming employment law are on the table, including fee-charging for tribunal claims, protected conversations and compensated no fault dismissal. The outcome in each of these areas will have a major influence on employee relations in the UK and employers will be looking forward to hearing Mr Lamb’s views. Employers will also be looking forward to getting informed analysis from a range of highly qualified lawyers and HR practitioners of the most important changes that have taken place in legislation and case law in the last twelve months.”

As well as Mr Lamb’s keynote speech, other highlights of the conference include:
