Event Details

Learn about the impacts that workplace incidents can have on your business, executive team and your reputation

Costs in workplace related claims are higher than ever, as pressure on executives, and the risk of company and personal liability, grows.
Learning Seat and Lander & Rogers are pleased to invite you to attend a discussion on:
  • The extensiveness of costs and distractions in the event that a claim is brought against your business
  • Review of data on workplace compliance spending;
  • Executive and managers’ liability in context.
Our expert speakers will provide personal insight into your compliance obligations and the challenges of balancing risk against cost.

See what our brand new compliance suite looks like

This event will also be your opportunity to get a preview of our brand new Law at Work compliance solution, built on extensive client Compliance Focus Group consultation. Law at Work has been developed in partnership with leading law firm Lander & Rogers.
