Calling all Shropshire employers!

Shropshire employers are being urged to take advantage of a seminar that could change the way they do business.

We're hosting the event on Tuesday March 1, at 10.30am, at our offices at The Foundry, Euston Way, Telford, and we believe it could prove invaluable for local employers.

John Mehtam, our employment law specialist who leads our Alpha business team, said: "Every year there are more and more regulations which employers need to tackle, and 2011 is no different, but increasingly employers have less and less time to wade through the complicated rules. So we're hosting a presentation where our experts will explain the six key employment law updates that will directly affect businesses this year."

The topics are:
*Abolition of the default retirement age
*Changes to maternity and paternity leave
*Extension of flexible working rights
*Equal treatment for agency workers
*Equality Act 2010
*Bribery Act 2010

"We'll also be joined on the day by leading barrister, Ed Beever, from St Philips Chambers in Birmingham, who specialises in commercial and employment law, and who is recognised as one of the best in his field. This is the latest in a series of seminars run by our Alpha team who specialise in effective and appropriate advice for businesses in all aspects of commercial and employment law."

But numbers for the seminar are strictly limited, so employers need to reserve a place by calling 01952 272222 or email
