Latest Updates to Employment Law in a nutshell

There have been significant changes in employment law, with the introduction of new pieces of legislation, and also with significant cases on issues such as holiday pay, TUPE, the Equality Act, mandatory ACAS conciliation for every tribunal claim raised, as well as unfair dismissal.

This seminar will provide you with practical guidance on how these changes will impact on your business and will also allow you to plan ahead, to make sure your handbooks and contracts remain compliant and making sure your decisions will be less likely to end up the subject matter of an employment tribunal claim.

There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion, as well as any questions you may have.

At the end of the seminar, you will have:-
  • An awareness of significant developments in employment law;
  • Handouts in relation to the relevant case law that affects your business;
  • An awareness of planned changes in employment law, and
  • A practical guide on how these changes can be used to the advantage of your business.
How to conduct a disciplinary procedure in your organisation

Failing to follow a proper procedure before dismissing any employee is regarded as a cardinal sin by the Employment Tribunal. This seminar will provide you with the knowledge you require to avoid incurring the wrath of employment tribunals.

We will focus on practical examples that will be relevant to your business and will cover the hurdles or difficulties that often arise when attempting to discipline employees, such as reluctant witnesses, stress, grievances being lodged by the employee and allegations of favouritism or inconsistency.

There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion as well as any questions you may have.

At the end of the seminar you will have:-
  • An understanding of what procedures you need to follow;
  • Practical guidance on how those procedures can be complied with in your organisation, and
  • Confidence in dealing with difficult situations.
How to protect your business from departing employees

In a time of economic uncertainty, the need to control access to and protect your confidential information, and for effective restraints on employees after they have ceased active service for you is particularly strong.

Having certain information and the ability to compete using that information, could give employees a head-start in business; and give them an unfair advantage when competing with you.

This seminar will give you guidance on how to protect your technology, strategic information about your business or your customer contacts and to stop departing employees from using that information.

There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion as well as any questions you may have.

At the end of the seminar you will have:-

  • An understanding of what areas of your business are vulnerable from attack;
  • How those areas can be protected;
  • What practical steps you can take during the employment, and
  • What steps you can take through the courts if necessary, to protect your business.
