Lancaster law firm ‘zooms’ in to help both local businesses and charity Rosemere

Lancaster law firm Baines Wilson is offering local businesses the opportunity to take part in a series of free zoominars – Zoom employment law briefings on managing workplace problems that may have arisen because of the coronavirus pandemic – that are also supporting charity Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Three hour-long briefings have been planned to start at 10 am on Tuesday 29th September, 6th October and 10th November.

Led by the firm’s employment law team, the first Zoominar will focus on post-furlough redundancies. That will shift to the benefits of changed working practices the following month and a summary of important cases and 2020 legislation changes in November.

Joanne Holborn, of Baines Wilson, explains: “Each session will equip those joining us with the knowledge and confidence to make necessary changes in their organisations.

“They will also have the opportunity to ask our experienced lawyers any questions as well as to have a catch up with fellow delegates. Since we are not charging for our briefings, we are asking participants to make a donation to Rosemere Cancer Foundation or to Cumbria Community Foundation’s Covid-19 Response Fund as we want to help support vulnerable people affected by coronavirus.”

Besides its Lancaster office, which has long supported Rosemere Cancer Foundation, Baines Wilson also has an office in Carlisle.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation works to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria being treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre, the region’s specialist cancer and radiotherapy treatment centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, and also at another eight local hospital cancer units across the two counties, including that at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

The charity funds cutting edge equipment, research, training and other cancer services and therapies that the NHS is unable to afford. For further information on its work, including how to make a donation, visit
