Description

In the excitement of starting a new business, winning your first contracts and hiring your first employees, the legal considerations can easily fall by the wayside. Some foresight and preparing the correct policies however can save serious amounts of money, as well as time, later down the line. With the gracious support of Ronald Fletcher Baker LLP, GetSet for Growth is presenting an evening to prepare you for the most common legal pitfalls and to arm you with knowledge and strategies to avoid all that is avoidable.

We both pride ourselves on cutting the jargon and present bite sized, easy to understand information even on complicated matters, so you can be sure to leave knowing exactly what needs to be done to protect your business assets from legal calamities.

We are going to discuss:


Data protection and privacy

  • GDPR – a beginner’s guide to data processing and data mapping
  • Personal data v sensitive personal data
  • Privacy policies
  • Retention policies and data standards.

Commercial terms and conditions

  • Risks of contracting without terms and conditions
  • What to look out for if a supplier/customer requires you to sign up to their standard terms


Employment policies

  • HR policies needed in order to employ people
  • What happens if you don’t have these in place?
  • Best practices
