Whistleblowing

Kindly sponsored and delivered by Bevan Brittan

Ashley Norman, Partner and Anne Palmer, Legal Director, Bevan Brittan 

All universities will have well-publicised whistleblowing procedures so that staff know how to raise concerns but the case law is constantly evolving, so this session is aimed at proving an update of key recent developments. The breakfast briefing will cover:

· An overview of the latest whistleblowing cases;

· What the cases tell us about how to manage concerns and limit liability for university employers.

Governance in Higher Education: What HR need to know – and do

Kindly Sponsored by Farrer & Co

Kathleen Heycock, Partner, Elizabeth Jones, Partner and Alice Kendle, Associate, Farrer & Co

Interactive session where we will provide HR colleagues with an overview of the impact of key findings from the recent HEPI report on governance in Higher Education and the effect that they will have on Higher Education HR professionals. Higher education providers are complex and unique organisations: communities of scholars, staff and students, with a multifaceted educational mission, and subject to a variety of legal and regulatory regimes. Therefore our session will potentially cover other aspects such as:

  • The right people, with the right knowledge;
  • Recruitment – getting the right balance;
  • Governing body;
  • Remuneration;
  • Transparency.

Please note that these sessions are subject to last minute changes due to speaker alterations.
