Top employment lawyer from Thursfields to star at national conference

One of Thursfields Solicitors’ top lawyers is featuring as a speaker on both days of a national conference run by a leading professional body next month.

Jade Linton, a Senior Associate Solicitor in the Employment team at the Solihull office, will be presenting to members of the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP).

The CIPP’s 35th annual conference and exhibition takes place on 2nd and 3rd October at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, South Wales, an event which regularly attracts up to 600 delegates.

Jade will provide an employment law update as a main speaker on day two, while on day one she will be running workshops on managing sickness absence and grievance procedures.

Stacey Graham, Associate Director of Events and Administration at the CIPP, said: “We’re delighted to have someone as experienced as Jade in employment law to update delegates at our conference and exhibition, which is an invaluable opportunity for professionals to educate and collaborate.”

Jade said: “There have been a number of recent legal changes in employment law and I’m looking forward to sharing these with the CIPP.

This conference is an excellent event as it not only has speakers but also a number of workshops where we can help delegates plan to put their learnings into practice.

As well as my main address on day two, I’m leading a workshop event on day one regarding managing sickness absence and grievance procedures, and I’m looking forward to that interaction.”

Jade is a regular external speaker and was recommended in the Legal 500 as a solicitor who possesses a “unique quality amongst those in her possession to make law unintimidating and understandable to all”.
