Our first Surrey Breakfast Employment Update of 2020, in conjunction with Alexander Lloyd is on Tuesday 03rd March 2020
Now that a greater degree of political certainty exists, we should all look forward to the post-Brexit business opportunities which have been promised to us. With this in mind, our first Surrey Breakfast Employment Update of the new decade presented by Mundays LLP will focus on recruitment and include a guest presentation by Fragomen LLP on the immigration implications of Brexit.
Effective recruitment is all about recruiting and retaining the right staff. In this update, Andrew and Céline from Mundays will guide you through good recruitment practice, including avoiding the risk of discrimination. After an immigration update, we’ll look at a scenario to see how guidance should be put into practice.
Mundays LLP is a leading UK law firm based in Surrey which provides specialist legal advice to corporate and private clients. The Chambers & Partners UK legal directory 2017 stated that “They’re very good and very responsive. Their advice is always very pragmatic and very commercial. They’re just extremely helpful”. In the 2018 edition, they said “They are responsive, available, on top of issues, super-proactive and ahead of the game, which is very useful”. In the 2019 edition, one client described them as “excellent in all areas we have worked with them in, and they are very good at explaining the issues to non-legal people”. For 2020, it was noted that a client “found the team to be very comprehensive and intelligent in the way they reason”.
