Pure and Birkett Long provide free employment law update for Suffolk employers

More than 35 HR professionals from Suffolk attended an Employment Law seminar hosted by professional recruitment specialists Pure and law firm Birkett Long.  

Pure and Birkett Long have been working together to host regular employment law seminars in the region for over four years. The two firms provide free, informative sessions to help local employers stay up to date with the often fast moving and increasingly complicated field of employment and recruitment law.

The latest breakfast seminar, held on Wednesday 5 July at the Suffolk Food Hall in Wherstead, included an overview of the latest updates in employment law and outcomes of most recent HR related legal cases. This was followed by a workshop which covered practical case studies about Employment Law.  

Paul Sheldrake, senior manager at Pure, said: “Our aim is to make these sessions as valuable as possible to anyone in HR, helping to ensure their organisation remains a great place to work. The feedback we had from delegates was that the event was informative and engaging, and that the workshops provided a great forum to discuss issues with others working in the industry as well as gaining expert advice.”

The event was free to attend with voluntary donations collected for the Ipswich charity Lighthouse Women’s Aid. The session raised over £90 for the organisation, which supports women and children affected by domestic abuse, with more pledges still being received.

Pure and Birkett Long will be holding further HR employment law seminars in the Eastern region in 2017. For more information, contact Paul Sheldrake on paul.sheldrake@prs.uk.com
