Session 2

In this breakfast briefing series, we’ll be exploring a number of topical compliance issues, to help you navigate the increasingly complex compliance landscape. In this session, we will be discussing:

  • Mitigating the risks of #MeToo and getting your corporate culture right – Whilst the #MeToo movement has rightly focused on sexual harassment in the workplace, this briefing will look at how employers can engage positively with employees on these issues, and how to develop an inclusive workplace which fosters the wellbeing of employees and the development of the “employer brand”. In addition, we will also be discussing the steps employers can take to minimise the risks of sexual harassment and other inappropriate conduct occurring in the workplace.
  • Corporate governance and s172 reporting: complying with the new regime – With preparation of first reporting under the new corporate governance disclosure regime (for financial years commencing on or after 1 January 2019) now well underway, we will look at how companies are approaching the new requirements and what changes they are making to their internal governance processes as a result.
  • The impact of IR35 – How HMRC is seeking to use larger companies to police behaviour in their supply chains – The changes to IR35 which become effective in April 2020 shift the risk of contractors failing IR35 onto the end user and staff agencies. This session talks about how corporates need to plan for that risk, wider tax risks and burdens being imposed on them by HMRC to stop tax evasion and avoidance by contractors.
