Howells Announces Extra Dates for Free Employment Law Seminars in Swansea and Cardiff

Are you up to date with the latest developments in Employment Law legislation? Would you like to find out more about recent changes in this area so that you’re able to safeguard your business and employees?

At Howells Solicitors, we appreciate that it can be difficult for busy people to keep up with the latest in Employment Law legislation. However, this complex area of the law has many implications for employers and employees alike, and understanding them is imperative.

In an attempt to assist those who would benefit from professional guidance in this area, Howells Solicitors are hosting two FREE Employment Law seminars for businesses based in Cardiff, Swansea and South West Wales. The first will be hosted at the Village Hotel in Swansea on the 7th of July, followed by a second at our Cardiff Offices on the 9th of July.

These seminars will provide practical, jargon-free advice and guidance regarding recent changes in Employment Law and best practice, and is aimed at HR professionals and senior management. However, the information we will be providing is relevant for anyone in business and all are welcome.
