Mourant Ozannes sponsors Jersey Construction Council seminars

The Jersey Construction Council has launched its 2013 winter seminar series in conjunction with Mourant Ozannes.

Tickets are now available for the first seminar taking place on Thursday 21 February 2013 at the Radisson Blu Hotel. Doors open at 7.30am for an 8.00am start.

The 2013 seminars follow the success of the inaugural series, which took place last year, and begin with a seminar about employment law.

The team of expert speakers for the employment seminar includes Mourant Ozannes’ specialist employment lawyer, advocate Helen Ruelle; David Witherington, director at JACS; Malcolm Ferey, chief executive of the Citizens Advice Bureau and Tim Darwin, operations director at Normans.

The seminar will examine a number of myths surrounding the island’s employment legislation, including the actions that employers can and cannot take, as well as the use of certain employment documentation. In challenging some of the commonly held views of the employment law and providing guidance on often misunderstood areas of law and practice, the seminar aims to provide a clearer understanding of their options and duties. It will also help employers become pro-active with regard to applying the legislation to their businesses.

During the session, Helen Ruelle will pose questions to the panel, challenge some of their views and will also invite the audience to pose any questions they have about employment law and its practical application.

The first seminar is being held at the Radisson Blu Hotel on Thursday 21 February.

Future seminars will cover Energy and Sustainability (20 March) and Health and Safety in the Workplace (25 April).

Anyone wishing to attend should book tickets to one or more of the seminars using Eventbrite.
