Event description

Description


HR and Employment Law is crucial for any business owner to be aware of; the law is the same regardless of the number of employees.

Getting things wrong or ‘not knowing what you don’t know’ is not a defence in an Employment Tribunal.

With an average award of £12,362 (max £238,216) for unfair dismissal and £23,478 (max £557,039) for sex discrimination (plus legal fees and reputation damage) the cost to your business could be devastating.

Can you afford the risk which could amount to thousands of pounds and reputational damage?

The aim of this workshop is to provide a broad and practical overview of HR and Employment Law issues which any business owner or manager needs to be aware of.

This workshop will cover the following:

‘Self-employed, worker and employee’ – do you understand the differences, how and when you should use, the contracts that need to be issued and the risks of getting this wrong?

Holidays – how to calculate and ensure compliance for part time and zero hours staff

Discrimination risks and where they can arise from recruitment through to dismissal

Managing Absence including sickness and what rights employees have to statutory time off for other absences e.g. maternity, paternity, emergency dependant leave and flexible working

Difficult Conversations: disciplinary, grievance, performance and absence

What the costs could be of ‘getting it wrong’ if you receive an Employment Tribunal claim


Ideal for anyone who has responsibility for HR within their Organisation.

We intentionally keep our groups small to enable time for discussion and questions, therefore early booking is essential.
