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 MANAGE SICKNESS ABSENCE

Date: 27th June
Course Length: Half Day

Learn More

Why should I book this course?

Because a happy, healthy workforce is essential for a well-functioning business.

Sickness absence, whether long-term or repeated short-term, can be one of the trickiest problems for employers to handle.  If handled badly, these issues can find their way to the employment tribunal as claims for unfair dismissal and/or disability discrimination.

This seminar will provide practical and common-sense advice to guide employers through the legal pitfalls associated with managing sickness absence.


HOW TO MANAGE WORKPLACE CONFLICT

Date: 11th July
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.
