The Employment Law Exchange
"Keeping on Top of Employment Law: Understanding Law and Working Within it"
The Employment Law Exchange (ELE) is a unique club. There are many other ways you can get information about developments in employment law and related topics, such as from newsletters, journals, lectures and blogs, but ELE is designed to provide a ‘wrap round’ and on-going service for members, which is built on sharing and collaboration. We have our regular half day meetings where we consider legal changes and likely future developments, which combine information with quizzes, case studies and other activities. We use members’ premises for our meetings on a rotating basis and between meetings we have newsletters, special sessions with topical speaker.
The emphasis is always on the effective application of law at members’ workplaces. We not only, consider the changes to legislation and case-law as ‘rule changes’, but we explore what law is trying to achieve and what new policy initiatives are about. We seek the views and practical support from fellow members on workplace issues. Therefore, this is no ordinary updating service. ELE provides the opportunity to 'get amongst the law' and build understanding and confidence as well as knowledge.'
