The GTA University Centre, in partnership with Carey Olsen, is hosting an interactive half-day conference focusing on employment law issues.
The event will explore the role of integrity in the modern-day employment relationship, with a particular focus on the financial services sector, through the use of role-play, group discussion and short presentations.
Delegates will explore a fictional scenario following a potential rogue employee’s increasingly unscrupulous behaviour involving tax-evasion and one of their foreign clients. The audience will participate in key decisions throughout the scenario to determine how the employer should proceed and ultimately whether the employee should be dismissed or not.
Speakers include Carey Olsen partners Elaine Gray and Mark Dunster, counsel Carly Parrott, a representative from the Guernsey Financial Services Commission and experts from the field of forensic computing and leadership training. They will explore topics such as disciplinary investigations and procedures, obtaining and using computer evidence, managing regulatory issues, unfair dismissal risks and potential criminal proceedings.
Elaine Gray said: ‘We expect this conference to particularly appeal to directors, senior management and HR professionals as it applies to situations they may have faced, or could potentially face, when it comes to suspicious employee actions that they may need to address.’
‘We hope that the interactive nature of this conference will provide some memorable insights into the core obligation of integrity in employment relationships and how to manage risks arising from that obligation.’
