Eversheds training and events

Eversheds provide thought-leading briefings and conferences, as well as core courses, to help practitioners develop their understanding of law and regulation in the workplace. We work with independent experts and government agencies to help organisations understand new legal requirements prior to implementation dates. We also aim to help delegates with their own personal professional development and to encourage better practice.

In addition, we provide a wide selection of free breakfast briefings, events and webinars. 

Upcoming events, webinars and training

  • 11th annual pensions conference: inadequacy? responsibility, incentives and nudges

    “If you don’t know where you are going any road can take you there”*. Ageing societies need people to save for retirement and not to rely on the State. Reforms which empower individual choice are, in principle, a good thing. But too many options, from a financial industry perceived to be long on complexity and short on consumer trust, may simply cause further confusion.
  • Advanced employee investigation interview skills and tactics

    In recognition of the rising expectations judges have of an employer's investigation process and documentation, and the ever increasing complexity of some employee investigations, more and more organisations are recognising that the conduct of investigations is a specialist role, and developing in-house teams of dedicated management investigators.
  • CARRIE - An open forum for female in-house lawyers

    This event is named after Carrie Morrison, the first woman to be admitted as a solicitor in December 1922.
  • Central and Eastern European HR: employment law in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia and Slovakia

    The Central and Eastern European ("CEE") countries have distinctive employment law frameworks which an increasing number of HR practitioners and in-house lawyers must come to terms with.
  • Commercial awareness training for in-house counsel

    Eversheds Academy - a unique 3 day residential commercial awareness programme designed specifically for in house lawyers.
  • Complex employment disputes - Cases from hell

    Sometimes, from apparently simple facts, an employment dispute can cause damage far beyond the costs and issues that had initially appeared to be at stake, while consuming vast amounts of time and resources.
  • Criminality and the employment relationship - history, subsequent convictions and allegations - with Nacro

    Over ten million people in the UK have a criminal record*. Our criminal records regime seeks to balance respect for civil liberties, public protection, and the encouragement of rehabilitation.
  • Employment law breakfast briefing: The five fair reasons re-visited

    We all understand the importance of dismissing “fairly” and in this session we intend to re-visit the five fair reasons for dismissal.
  • Employment law update for education HR teams and managers

    This seminar will be delivered by experienced solicitors who specialise in providing employment advice to universities, colleges and schools.
  • Employment law updates: self-policing and Brexit

    The Gender Pay Gap Information Regulations simply ask an employer to publish a few numbers. The Modern Slavery Act only requires the publication of a statement, but says nothing about what your statement must contain and there is no fine or threat of court action for non-compliance. The risk for employers is reputational damage.
  • Essential employment law for HR professionals

    HR professionals and managers need to understand the legal framework that underpins the employment relationship.
  • European HR: cross-border employment law

    Managing teams of people is challenging at the best of times. Working across European borders is even more difficult, due to cultural and legal differences.
  • Eversheds Real Estate Training Programme

    Eversheds LLP is delighted to present the Eversheds Real Estate Litigation Training Programme.
  • Gender pay reporting with Acas and Equal Pay Portal

    You can have a gender pay gap without having an equal pay problem. Soon, all businesses and third sector organisations with over 250 employees will have to publicly report on average pay differences between their male and female employees. Similar obligations are expected to apply in the public sector. The Government’s expectation is that greater transparency and public scrutiny will force employers to take action to close the gender pay gap and accelerate equality between the sexes.
  • Health and Safety Summer School - Carrots or sticks? How to stay in the driving seat

    The new Sentencing Guideline for health and safety and similar offences is a reality. Already fines for the largest organisations are into the low millions and a ten-fold increase on a year ago. With an explicit focus on culpability and risk of harm what patterns are emerging?
  • HR reporting duties - Visibility, benefits and risk

    What will you do if your direct competitor’s HR data is better than yours? Gender pay, anti-bribery, human rights, modern slavery and trafficking reporting duties are some new forms of non-financial, or sustainability reporting.
  • HR Summer School: wellbeing and the bottom-line

    What are the goals for your wellbeing expenditures? Are they to save money or make money? Do you measure the outcomes, or is it just the right thing to do? How do you explain the benefits to your staff, and do they actually value what you are providing to them?
  • International assignments and the law: contracts, visas and tax

    When an employee is relocated overseas, an additional layer of employment, immigration, tax and social security laws will apply in at least two jurisdictions. This half-day briefing highlights the employment, immigration and tax requirements that you need to consider when you are sending an employee to work abroad or bringing an employee into the UK.
  • Introduction to Defined Benefit pensions: running a DB scheme

    Pension scheme trustees are required to have a knowledge and understanding of: the law relating to pensions and trusts, the principles relating to scheme funding and investment.
  • Introduction to Defined Contribution pensions: running a DC scheme

    Pension scheme trustees are required to have a knowledge and understanding of: the law relating to pensions and trusts, the principles relating to scheme funding and investment.
  • Job Stress - Reduction and inspection

    The Health and Safety Executive’s new strategy (2016) gives the same priority to health as it does to safety, and they will reissue their Stress Management Standards later this year. Employers should expect HSE inspectors to become more attentive to employee health and wellbeing, and we may see greater use of improvement notices.
  • Labour relations conference

    In recent times, the UK has enjoyed above average growth rates, almost no inflation and the highest rate of employment and foreign investment since records began*. From April 2016, the new National Living Wage will also begin to boost the earnings of the lowest paid. So why doesn’t it feel like a return to good times?
  • New talent: attraction and retention with AGR

    Skill shortages are high on the agenda for politicians and employers alike. As a result of the Government’s encouragement of apprenticeships, a much tighter labour market, and young people with second thoughts about student debt, employers will need to update their recruitment offers if they are to attract the best talent into their organisation ... and retain their skills.
  • South African employment law training

    The previous South African regime was characterised by denial of workers’ rights and inequality. To redress the balance, the South African Government has introduced various pieces of labour legislation which employers have had to implement.
