17th Annual Payroll & HR Conference, March 2-4, 2011Tuesday, February 15th, 2011
The Learn Centre’s Annual Payroll & HR Conference is almost upon us, and once again it will be gathering a range of experts (both old and new) under one roof. The conference has become respected as perhaps the ‘gold standard’ for payroll and HR conferences and remains popular and relevant despite the fact that it’s been running for almost 2 decades, which should tell you something.
It has gained an enviable reputation for delivering concentrated learning, understanding and insight over just 2 ½ days, with the added value of one-to-one sessions with experienced tutors and, of course, the invaluable opportunity to exchange views and network with other delegates and professional colleagues. This year’s Conference is the 17th in the series.
As with previous years there are the popular update sessions, this year covering over 30 specialist modules which delegates can choose to attend, covering key topics including: Payroll Update, Pensions Update, Recruiting Legally, Maternity matters and Termination Payments. This year there are also some respected and entertaining speakers from HMRC, along with prominent industry experts and advisors in pensions and legal matters.
In addition to the update sessions are a wide range of seminars covering the “hot” topics in HR and payroll:
- The minefield of Court orders; regular readers of this column will remember several articles this year on changes to English and Scottish Court Orders
- HMRC’s powers in compliance and how penalty settlements can be reached, how HMRC are following up on cases and how that can impact your business.
- Employment Law Update – a guide through the myriad of changes this year, again there have been many articles on different aspects of Employment Law this year.
- Managing the risks associated with engaging temporary Labour. Employers are all too aware that HMRC are focussing on this area and extra diligence is now required.
- Social Networking and what impact that has in the workplace; how to get the best out employees and social networking.
- The Equality Act and the impact on workplace processes and documentation.
