Hitting the headlines: employees, information and the media


What makes a workplace story interesting to journalists? What should employers consider when sensitive information appears in the media? What happens when the source of a leak or careless comment is an employee? How should an employer act to protect its reputation appropriately?

In this era of 24 hour news, social media and increasingly accessible information, join us as we consider these questions and the challenges and opportunities for employers when they find their organisations in the news.

Withers employment, media and information lawyers and guest speakers Sarah Baxter, deputy editor of The Sunday Times, and Quentin Smith, senior editorial adviser at the BBC, will explore the issues and provide useful tips for employers.

If you would like to join us and have the opportunity to put your own questions to the panel, please RSVP using this link.
