Hope you’ve had an enjoyable Easter break and enjoyed the warm UK weather. We’ve got an exciting calendar developing for 2019, here’s an insight into what’s happening at DHN. If you have any questions on our upcoming events feel free to reply to this email.

Tim Roache, General Secretary of the GMB Union is our Speaker on 30.4.19 and he will be introduced and hosted by Martin Warren of Eversheds Sutherland – and at their City facilities – 1 Wood Street, London EC2V 7WS. Martin is responsible for all Eversheds work in their Labour Relations Practice covering Labour Relations, Labour Law, Trade Unions, and Labour Relations Strategy. In particular, a couple of key and topical issues Tim will cover are implications from the Hermes case about employment status and also activities around extending trade union representation. Important stuff for not only HR Heads but also for those who might otherwise get caught out! Spaces still available here.
