Employment Rights after Brexit

What will Brexit mean for human rights, anti-discrimination law and workers’ rights in the UK jurisdiction? What gets lost? Could the common law compensate? What about collective labour rights? How will these changes be reflected in New Zealand law?

Come and hear a leading UK expert (who began her legal career at Rudd Watts in NZ) elucidate potential Brexit effects for us. And join in the discussion of the implications for employment rights in our own jurisdiction.
