Annual London Employment Seminar:

Join us at our Annual Employment Seminar which will address the question: “Is it getting easier to stop employee competition?” In this fast-moving area, up to date knowledge of the latest trends and developments is essential to providing the most strategic, tactical and commercial advice to clients, be they gamekeeper, poacher or individual employees. This seminar will focus on sharing Littleton’s extensive front-line experience in asset and business protection litigation. Our speakers will draw on their own recent involvement in cases to provide insight and practical guidance on:
  •  Recent developments in restrictive covenants including issues of consideration and the future of non-compete covenants;
  •  Current trends in remedies including springboard relief, disclosure orders and damages;
  •  Jurisdictional issues including discussion of Petter v EMC Europe Ltd and the post-Brexit landscape.

Financial Services Update for Employment Lawyers:

The FCA and PRA conduct rules form a key part of the Senior Managers and Certification Regime which came into force on 7 March 2016. From 7 March 2017 those rules are to extend to cover most employees of relevant firms based in the UK or who deal with customers in the UK.

The Senior Managers and Certification Regime signalled a cultural shift in the world of financial regulation. The regime introduced a new and challenging dynamic focused on the early detection of misconduct and based on the simple proposition that a senior manager ought to be responsible for what happens on his or her watch. The regime is designed to increase the accountability of senior individuals in UK banks, building societies, credit unions and PRA-designated investment firms and branches of foreign banks operating in the UK and to bring more individuals into the regulated sphere. 

  • The conduct rules and their impact on the employment relationship
  • Regulatory references
  • Pay regulation, malus and clawback arrangements

This breakfast seminar will consider the wide-ranging practical implications of this new regime and the issues that all relevant firms will need to consider when managing the employment relationship, including what to do when it all goes wrong.
