Why should I book this course?

To protect you and your managers against allegations of discrimination.

Managers and other decision-makers within a business are the most likely to be the target of allegations that they have discriminated.  They may even find themselves named as individual respondents in a tribunal claim.

This seminar takes an enlightening walk through the entire employment relationship from recruitment to dismissal and beyond.  At each stage, we will highlight the areas where discrimination risks may arise, and explain how to manage the pitfalls to reduce the risk of grievances and tribunal claims.


HOW TO RECRUIT SAFELY

Date: 11th July
Course Length: Half Day

Why should I book this course?

Because following good practice throughout a recruitment process will not only help you to avoid litigation, but also to ensure your business has access to the best talent available.

Job applicants are protected from discrimination in the same way as existing staff.  Employers are at risk of discrimination claims throughout the recruitment process, from to moment that they place an advert to finally making an offer.  As an employer, you are also potentially liable if your managers’ recruitment decisions are discriminatory.

This half-day seminar is designed to provide business-owners, HR people and managers with essential practical guidance on best practice and how to reduce the risk of claims arising from recruitment decisions.


HOW TO MANAGE WORKPLACE CONFLICT

Date: TBC
Course Length: Half Day

Why should I book this course?

Because it makes good business sense.

Conflict in the workplace is undeniably bad for business.

The workplace can be a hotbed of conflict.  If allowed to fester or escalate, conflict can be hugely disruptive and damaging to staff morale, motivation and productivity.  At their worst, conflict issues can find their way to the employment tribunal, leading to risky, costly and time-consuming litigation.

This seminar provides vital guidance for employers on how to deal effectively with problems such as bullying, harassment, personality clashes and other unacceptable behaviours at work.
