From Facebook to anonymity – Employment Law under the spotlight

06 Jun


TWO senior figures in the field of Employment Law in Scotland will head the line-up of speakers at the 2019 conference of the Faculty’s Employment Law Group (ELG).

Lord Summers, Judge of the Employment Appeal Tribunal in Scotland, is to examine the use of social media in his talk, entitled “Fired because of Facebook”, while Susan Walker, Vice-President of Employment Tribunals (Scotland) will look at the scope of Rule 50 in her talk, entitled “Privacy and Restrictions on Disclosure in the Employment Tribunal”.

The full-day conference will take place on Monday, 24 June, in the Faculty’s Mackenzie Building, and will also feature contributions from ELG members Brian Napier, QC, Alice Stobart and David Hay.

Maurice O’Carroll, Advocate, conference chair, said: “This is a great opportunity for practitioners of all levels of seniority to listen to a distinguished line-up of speakers on a range of topical issues, and at the same time to obtain invaluable advocacy training during the break-out sessions.”
