The session will discuss key areas of the employment relationship. It will cover legal considerations in relation to the recruitment, management and dismissal of employees.

It will provide guidance on the business requirement to undertake a practical risk assessment, to ensure businesses are protected in relation to their supply chains and third party engagement. 


The breakfast will certainly be of great interest to senior managers, directors, in-house counsel and HR managers. There will also be networking opportunities before and after the event to share ideas, information and contacts with other business figures in the UAE.

Liam Mooney founder of Club Fit For Business and Blue Pencil said: 

“ We are delighted to partner with CREATIVE ZONE for this business breakfast. One of the aims of Club Fit For Business is to provide a solid platform for SME’s to share information, contacts and knowledge with like-minded members of the sport business community. We are very lucky to have three fantastic speakers from Pinsent Masons and a prestigious venue in the Capital Club. People who attend can expect an informative talk, together with a quality audience many of whom, will be hand-picked by Blue Pencil, CREATIVE ZONE and Pinsent Masons.”


Steve Mayne, Managing Partner of CREATIVE ZONE further highlighted the need for a deeper understanding of human capital and the associated corporate risks when hiring an individual and sponsoring their residence visas, further commenting that, "We are receiving calls and queries on a day to day basis from our clients regarding visas, employment contracts, and the risks the company is exposed to with this regard. Having a clear understanding of corporate practice and the law, as well as knowing you limitations as both an employer and an employee, can help you not only plan but also pre-empt any issues that may arise in the future."
