Employment Law in a Day

Course Overview

Every employer regardless of size must be aware of the ever-increasing changes in Employment law and ancillary legal requirements, not only to motivate and gain the best return from their investment in their employees, but also to minimise their possible exposure to costly tribunal-awarded compensation.

Our popular one-day Employment Law seminar provides an ideal opportunity to be brought up-to-date on the latest laws and developments, gain the benefit of practical advice and guidance on recent binding legal decisions AND forthcoming changes - as well as ask questions on matters of individual concern in an informal atmosphere.

The seminar will examine (amongst other items):
  • Using proactive recruitment to help avoid hiring 'employees from hell'
  • The revised ACAS disciplinary/dismissal code (using a complaint form)
  • The leave/benefit rights of parents (and grandparents) and those who adopt
  • Remaining rights that can enable an employer to enforce retirement
  • The extension of rights for all employees to request a change in working hours/days
  • Far-reaching and potentially expensive rights for temps: and zero hour contracts
  • Problem areas such as layoffs and redundancies, transferring employees under TUPE
  • Extending discrimination protection - philosophical beliefs,¬†gender pay monitoring, modern slavery etc.
As well as being able to raise matters of individual concern, you will receive fully comprehensive (and user-friendly) notes on all items covered, which include examples of policies and procedures, together with practically orientated handouts.

The presentation by David Martin, who sat as an Employment Tribunal member for 20 years, is clear, down-to-earth and practical. He invites questions and seeks to make the sessions interactive.

Numbers are restricted to allow maximum number of individual questions and concerns to be covered.

The Course fee includes course materials, lunch and refreshments.

A Certificate of Attendance is issued on completion of this course.

Timetable: The course will begin promptly at 9.30am and end at approximately 4.45pm, with breaks for refreshments and lunch.
