Share this article...

Both the morning and afternoon sessions of this event are now fully booked. 

If you would like to be added to the waiting list for any cancellation places please email Steve Herbert with full delegate details:  


2016 has been a turbulent political year, and as 2017 approaches the business world is now looking ahead and planning for a post-Brexit world.  So what better time for our delegates to attend our latest fun and informative Jelf Employment Seminar?

Our popular event Chair Peter Matthews will be directing the combined forces of the following expert educators:

–  The learned Tim Randles will provide his usual amusing and informative insights into the complex world of Employment Law

–  The value of Early Intervention in Sickness Absence will be explored by Scott Rayner

–  Steve Herbert will provide a topical update on Employee Benefits issues, together with a review of the new Chancellor’s autumn Budget statement

Our outstanding venue for this event reflects another moment when Britain was at a crossroads in its history.  This time we are at the top-secret wartime headquarters of the British Government,  The Churchill War Rooms.  From this location Winston Churchill personally directed much of the war effort during some of the nation’s darkest hours.  Our lucky delegates will have free access to the venue after the event, including viewing the map room, the private rooms of the Churchill family, and experiencing the superb interactive Churchill Museum.   The venue is centrally located and just a few minutes’ walk from many public transport links.

Employee Benefits“End of the beginning?”  

The new Chancellor is scheduled to deliver his Autumn Budget Statement just two days prior to our event.  Steve will look at the outcomes of this with particular reference to the Lifetime ISA (LISA), Tax Free Childcare, The Pensions Advice Allowance (and employer arranged advice) and Pension Taxation issues.   Some Churchill quotations are sure to make an appearance also!  Speaker:  Steve Herbert, Head of Benefits Strategy, Jelf Employee Benefits

 Managing Employee Absence:  “The benefits of Early Intervention”

Employee absence costs are a major drag on the UK economy, yet few employers actively seek to tackle this issue.  Scott Rayner, an Early Intervention expert from insurer Canada Life, will review this topic and clearly demonstrate how the duration of employee absence can be significantly reduced by the use of early intervention tools.  Speaker: Scott Rayner, GIP Proposition Manager, Canada Life Limited
