Duty of Care Conference
Protecting Workers and Expats Overseas
Duty of care is not an ethical concern but a legal obligation which is embedded in workers compensation laws in the UK and can extend as far as the dependents of international assignees. By protecting your employees, your most valuable asset, you are protecting your business, financial and reputational risks.
When employees work across borders, duty of care involves risk management beyond the usual health and safety requirements of a familiar environment. As workforces become more mobile, fulfilling duty of care can seem like a daunting task for employers which is made more challenging by the inconsistent levels of adoption around the globe. The balance between having robust processes in place to protect staff overseas and conducting business in an efficient and profitable manner can sometimes be difficult.
By attending this conference, delegates will be able to hear the latest advice on risks posed to workers travelling overseas and assess whether their own in-house travel and risk procedures are up to date. Delegates will be able to ensure they adequately understand the legal implications and liabilities of managing overseas workers and that they are meeting their Duty of Care requirements. The conference will provide an excellent opportunity to network with peers, swap ideas and best practice and meet face to face the providers who are offering solutions in this area.
