Frequently Asked Questions in Employment Law

Speakers: Dr. Roselyn Borg, 21 Law  and Dr. Andrew Borg Cardona, BCGL Advocates

Price: €55 per person

  • Are restraint of trade clauses enforceable? How should these be drafted?
  • What are the consequences of an injunction?
  • Which is the best way to hold an investigation for misconduct?
  • How do I exit employees without any consequences?

These are just a few of the questions that will be tackled during the workshop. The aim of this workshop is to address a number of questions we are often asked by employer and HR Professionals. Employment law can be overwhelming and it is of importance that the Company and its employees have guidance on this complex area of law. The tendency is for companies to employ a “band-aid” approach to employment law issues, consequently this may lead to time-consuming and expensive litigation. The training will address a number of questions and hence will assist the attendees to be aware of potential problems and to deal with them in a knowledgeable manner.

Speakers: Dr. Roselyn Borg, 21 Law and Dr. Karl Sammut,

The revamped EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective as of the 25 May 2018 introduces stringent data protection and privacy obligations on all persons and organisations that collect, store or process personal data.

Failure to comply with the provisions of the GDPR has far-reaching economic consequences including the imposition of hefty fines to 4% of total global annual turnover or €20 million.

The GDPR is applicable to all companies and organisations that process personal data, irrespective of industry and size.  Do not be left behind.  The aim of the workshop is to give you an overview of the GDPR and to guide you to comply with all the GDPR requirements, from the initial audit to the required implementing remedial actions.
