A Newcastle law firm is hosting a breakfast seminar highlighting the use of social media in the workplace.
Mincoffs Solicitors, based in Jesmond, is presenting the seminar, in which Nick Smith, a partner at the firm, and Jamie Anderson, barrister at Trinity Chambers, will assess the everyday impact of social media in the modern workplace and explore how to manage the unique risks and opportunities it presents.
Smith, a partner and head of employment and pensions at Mincoffs, is listed as a leading individual in the Legal 500, while Anderson was called to the Bar in July 2004 and specialises exclusively in employment and discrimination law, accepting instructions on behalf of employees, trade unions and employers, including local authorities.
He also undertakes non contentious work, drafting employment contracts and policies and has a teaching qualification and is able to provide training on any aspect of employment law.
The event, which will take place on Thursday May 15 at Jurys Inn, Gateshead Quays, is aimed at business owners, HR managers, and anyone involved in social media for their company.
Registration and breakfast will take place from 9am with the presentation starting at 9.30am and the event closing at 11am. All places are free.
