Back due to popular demand ... Carbon's Matt Huggett will be hosting further employment law webinars during April.  

You will find details about the webinar topics, dates, timings and joining instructions below.  If you're not able to attend, worry not, each session will be recorded and can be sent out to you to watch at your convenience. 

The Job Retention Scheme: Furlough update and FAQs

Links to webinar below:

Thursday 9 April            10.00am to 10.45am     

Thursday 9 April            3.00pm to 3.45pm

What will be covered?

This webinar will review all of the latest updates to the guidance published by the HMRC in connection with the government's Job Retention Scheme.  

This will include all the frequently asked questions that we have been asked and have been raised on various networks and social media. Lasting 45 minutes we intend to allow 30 minutes for the webinar presentation and 15 minutes for a question and answer session.  

Employment Law Update: It's not all furlough leave

Links to webinar below:

Tuesday 21 April           10.00am to 11.15am

Wednesday 22 April     10.00am to 11.15am

What will be covered?

This session is our 'traditional' update session of important legislative changes and new case law.  Of course, everything has been understandably dominated by COVID-19 and business restructuring.  But other changes have been happening which as well we must not lose sight of.


  • Parental bereavement leave
  • Holiday pay
  • Contracts of employment
  • Information Commissioner guidance re DSARs
  • IR35

Case Law

  • Legal costs
  • Veganism
  • Suspensions
  • Vicarious liability and data protection

The session will last from 10.00 to 11.00 and then a further 15 minutes for questions at the end.  We want to ensure that we are still able to capture the interactive element that would otherwise occur in face to face sessions.

In future we will then run these updates on a monthly basis.  They will last for between 30-45 depending upon the volume of important news that has occurred in that month.  

This is a new way of delivering our update service to our clients and we hope that it can form a cost effective and easy way of keeping up to date.  

Post Termination Restrictions

Link to webinar below:

Wednesday  29 April     10.00am to 11.00am

What will be covered?

This session will provide HR practitioners and business managers with a sound overview of the legal landscape relating to the use and enforcement of post termination restrictive covenants.

We will look at:

  • How to draft restrictions
  • The warning signs
  • The steps to enforcement
  • The tactics of enforcement
  • Social media and LinkedIn
  • How to recruit employees with restrictions

This is the first of our regular 'topic' based updates.  We will cover a number of other topics in the coming weeks and months.
