    Law on Tour update

    We're into our second week of the Law on Tour workshops now and it's been an amazing tour so far with very high delegate numbers, making for a great atmosphere on the workshops. However, there are still just a few places available for Edinburgh, Manchester, and Birmingham next week so if you haven't booked yet - get your skates on! It doesn't matter how experienced you may be in dealing with employee relations...

    Law on Tour workshops

    I heard someone talking last week about the wrong type of leaves being on the rail tracks – which means only one thing – it’s that time of year to get on the road again (well planes and trains as well actually) for the 2016 Autumn L...

    The sun is out, the sky is blue

    Spring has sprung! Well, the sun is out and while recently I have had my doubts as to whether the sky was blue above all that grey, it appears that it really is. So, it must be nearly time for CIPD Law on Tour to hit the road. Just as I was add...

    Breaking the habit - Law On Tour, Autumn 2014

    By Cas Carrington Readers who attended the CIPD Spring 2014 Law on Tour will have witnessed a very unusual (I sincerely hope once in a lifetime) sight. Me, delivering my workshop sessions from a bar stool. Now, before you jump to the wrong conclusions I was neither in a bar, nor was I imbibing anything more alcoholic than a sparkling mineral water (with ice and a slice of course). No the reason for my, oh so static...

    Taking a break - Law On Tour, Spring 2014

    After a week's break for the bank holiday the Law on Tour is back on the road again next week. We start off in Leeds on Tuesday, then Nottingham and Stansted, ending up in London on Friday. Talking of breaks... during the first week of the tour I was hobbling around on a pair of crutches after having had an argument with a mountain whilst skiing in March. To be honest the mountain won as I ended up spending most...

    Gorgeous George goes on CIPD Law on Tour? - Law On Tour, Spring 2014

    Come on - there really is no mistaking it! The days are longer, and dare I say warmer? The grass has 'ris', and the birdies are most definitely on the wing (or to be absolutely accurate, where we live, making a blinkin' racket from 6.00am onwards preventing any faint hope of a lie in - and, from bitter experience, very soon now the Starling family will be performing their very own daily version of the Jeremy...

    Spring Law on Tour - Now that’s what I call employment law!

    Zero-hours contracts - the good guys or the bad guys? Well they’ve certainly received enough bad press recently to sully their reputation that’s for sure, but is it justified? Well research seems to indicate that, in the main, this much maligned employment relationship is not so widely abused as media reports suggest. The flexibility that zero-hours contracts can offer is incredibly helpful both for organisations...

    Worryingly windy! - Law On Tour, Autumn 2013

    It's nearly the end of the 2013 Autumn Law on Tour (just one more workshop to go), and the Autumn leaves have certainly started to fall...with a bloomin' vengeance if you live anywhere south of Luton! Talk about blowing a hooley! We battened down every last hatch around our home on Sunday night and of course had to make sure that our girls' home in the garden was properly secured. Now before I'm swamped...

    'Good morning Sir!' - Law On Tour, Autumn 2013

    One week of the Law on tour delivered already - I can hardly believe it! Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol down and just another nine venues to go. John Fenton was my co-tutor last week and really went down a treat with the delegates with his tales of just what really happens at employment tribunal, and what can sometimes go wrong. My favourite tale - having repeatedly drummed into his witnesses the importance...
