The Employment Law Committee is a lively forum and actively engages in national consultation exercises about proposed changes to employment law, practice and procedure.
What we do
Our aim is to engage with local employment law practitioners, both in-house and in private practice, in big firms and in small, to keep them up to date with the latest exciting developments in this ever-changing field of the law.
We seek to influence bodies including the Government, Employment Lawyers Association, the Employment Tribunals and ACAS to take into account the interests of our members when deciding on the policies and procedures which affect our practice on a daily basis. A representative attends the Tribunal User Group and reports back.
We are actively involved in responding to consultation documents on key changes to the law.
In conjunction with the Society’s Training team we arrange employment law seminars and an Annual Conference.
We act as a lively forum for sharing ideas, concerns and experiences in practising employment law.
We are often joined by speakers giving informal talks on recent cases and updates; the Committee provides an excellent opportunity for keeping up to date and professional networking.
Who we are
The Committee has a diverse membership including both Claimant and Respondent – oriented firms of different sizes and in-house lawyers. All applications are welcome. All committee members must first be a member of Liverpool Law Society.
We also receive invaluable assistance and support from the General Committee of the and the Support team at the Society, particularly with regard to training and seminars
