Nearly 40 professionals from Suffolk attended an employment law seminar hosted by professional recruitment specialist Pure and law firm Birkett Long.

The two firms have been collaborating to host regular employment law seminars for more than four years, providing free, informative sessions to help employers in the eastern region keep up to date with the fast moving and complex field of employment and recruitment law.

The latest breakfast seminar, held at the Suffolk Food Hall at Wherstead, near Ipswich, included an overview of the latest updates in employment law and outcomes of the most recent HR-related legal cases, followed by a workshop which covered practical case studies.

The event was free to attend with voluntary donations collected for the Ipswich charity Lighthouse Women’s Aid. The session raised over £90 for the organisation, which supports women and children affected by domestic abuse, with more pledges still being received.

Paul Sheldrake, senior manager at Pure, said: “Our aim is to make these sessions as valuable as possible to anyone in HR, helping to ensure their organisation remains a great place to work.

“The feedback we had from delegates was that the event was informative and engaging, and that the workshops provided a great forum to discuss issues with others working in the industry as well as gaining expert advice.”
