A free seminar exploring the latest employment legislation is being held for the horse racing industry next week.

Racehorse trainers are being invited to the seminar entitled “The rules, the law, the headache” on Friday 13 June to learn more about employment rules and what the implications are for the horse racing industry.

The seminar is being run by law firm Withy King, which has a specialist racing and bloodstock department, in conjunction with the National Trainers Federation (NTF) to ensure trainers understand how to protect themselves from the prospect of unlimited compensation.

The guest speakers — legal executive and NTF adviser Dawn Bacchus, employment law specialist Richard White, and Withy King’s Andrew Chalk and Richard Brooks — will provide an update on the British Horseracing Authority rules and the latest raft of changes to employment law.

There will also be a discussion with practical advice on employee disciplinary proceedings that affect every employer in the racing industry.

The seminar will be held at Naunton Downs Golf Club near Cheltenham from 1.45pm – 4pm.
