New Frontiers

Risks for Employers relating to the new Right to Work immigration proposals, potential hidden liabilities for Directors including other areas of Corporate Governance and the Financial Implications of getting it wrong.

One day conference on Friday 15 Nov 2013 Hatfield House Hatfield Hertfordshire AL9 5NQ

This event will highlight the risks inherent in the proposed changes to immigration guidelines. It will also help to reveal the extent of the personal risks to directors that may not be obviously apparent in corporate governance, as well as the financial implications for companies when matters go wrong in this and other areas of board level concern.

We at uComply have brought together a diverse group of industry experts who will share their unique expertise with you, so that you will gain an understanding of how to mitigate these risks and how to protect yourselves and/or your companies from exposure to these very real dangers.
