News: HR Forum in Rotherham


The HR Forum established by Rotherham recruitment experts, Elevation, and international law firm, Irwin Mitchell, is holding its next event in Rotherham.

Business owners and HR directors from across the region are being invited to attend a complimentary breakfast seminar that will provide practical insight into the consequences of regulatory non-compliance.

The HR Forum was established last year to help human resources practitioners from around the region build a network for sharing knowledge and establishing relationships.

The next event is on April 29 at the New York Stadium in Rotherham at 8am and the complimentary breakfast seminar is entitled: "The real cost of Regulatory Non Compliance."

The costs of regulatory non-compliance can be severe both financially and reputationally for any business, large or small. The ability for a company to recover its costs, even when acquitted, in criminal proceedings, has now largely been abolished and so the focus must shift to ensuring it avoids, wherever possible, those costs in the first place.

Aimed at MD's, senior HR and senior finance professionals, this seminar will provide an update on the Bribery Act, its key provisions and what businesses need to do to ensure compliance. It will also look at the cost recovery scheme introduced by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), provide an overview of the scheme and give some guidance as to what a business can and should do if they find themselves facing a potential invoice from the HSE.

Sarah Barron, associate director at Elevation, said: "Our advisers will also offer tips on dealing with the employment aspects of formal investigations, including when internal investigations and processes should begin, and dealing with investigations and disciplinary proceedings involving senior employees."

Emma Windle, a Sheffield-based lawyer in Irwin Mitchell's Regulatory and Criminal Investigations Group who will be speaking on the day, added: "Events like this give business owners and HR directors a great opportunity to learn about the key changes in legislation which affect them the most.

"We're delighted to once again partner with Elevation on this event and look forward to helping attendees get to grips with significant issues that they simply cannot afford to ignore."
