    Bevan Brittan's popular annual review of the year's employment law highlights – and preview of forthcoming changes – is back this December, in London, Bristol, Leeds and Birmingham.

    The world of employment law is often described as 'ever changing' and this year has been no exception. We have seen a seismic decision on fees from the Supreme Court this Summer, as well as headline-grabbing rulings on the 'gig-economy' and a U-turn from the European Court of Human Rights on employee monitoring. There are also important cases to examine on the definition of indirect discrimination and the precise meaning of whistleblowing public interest disclosure – how 'public' does a disclosure have to be in order to qualify? Dress codes, holiday pay and redundancy after sickness absence have also been considered by the courts and tribunals this year.

    Outside of the courts and tribunals, 2017 has seen the unveiling of the much anticipated Taylor Review into 'Good Work', as well as publication of the Data Protection Bill. And as the UK heads towards the door marked 'exit' from the European Union, details are beginning to emerge of what the employment law landscape might look like after we have left.

    We will take you on a whistle-stop tour of the headline developments in workforce law over 2017, and what they mean for you in practice. We will also take a look at what's on the employment law agenda for the coming year and beyond. The morning's training will be followed by a networking lunch.
