Good Work: Building a Fair Employment Environment in NI *event postponed*

2nd March, 2020

Please note that, due to the escalating situation around Covid-19, Law Centre NI have decided to postpone this even until further notice. Interest in the event was high, so we would like to apologise for any inconvenience. We hope to rearrange the event in the future.

Law Centre NI is hosting a seminar to explore how we can make Northern Ireland a better place to work and do business.

When: Monday 30th March, 12pm - 2pm (registration at 11:30am).
Where: Lecture Hall, Law Society of Northern Ireland.
Bookings: To request a booking form, email: jack.gibson@lawcentreni.org.
Catering: Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.

Northern Ireland’s employment figures are at record high levels, while unemployment figures have hit record lows. However, workers here are still waiting for average real-terms earnings to reach the level they were at in 2009, over ten years ago. In addition, Northern Ireland has seen a growth of insecure employment and casualisation – as also seen elsewhere in the UK and Ireland. In short, while people are more likely than ever to be in a job, they're also less likely to have a 'good job'.

In this seminar we will explore how we can improve the quality of jobs in Northern Ireland. We will bring together business and workers’ representatives, alongside civil servants, researchers, academics and the third sector. Together, they will consider how we can build a fair employment landscape, in which everyone has access to a good job.
