past event

Event details

Employment law is constantly changing. It’s vital that travel employers keep up-to-date with these changes to ensure they are compliant with new legislation and able to handle the realities of today’s workplace

Gender pay gap reporting, the Posted Workers Directive, GDPR, and #metoo, leading to raised awareness of sexual harassment in the workplace, are just a few of the latest developments to impact travel industry employers.  

ABTA’s new practical workshop will provide up-to-date and accurate advice on employment law and how you can apply legal principles at work.
