HR and Employment Law Workshop

DETAILSExpand panel
September 13, 2019
10:00 am
SYST Enterprise Centre – Telford

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

This free ½ day  workshop provides a broad and practical overview of HR and Employment Law issues which any business owner, manager or person responsible for HR needs to be aware of, including;

  • ‘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 them 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 (maternity, paternity etc)
  • Disciplinary and Grievance – how to discipline staff and deal with grievances.
  • The End of Employment – why it happens and how to deal with it.
  • What the costs could be of ‘getting it wrong’ if you receive an Employment Tribunal claim

This workshop is run in partnership by Níamh Kelly – Director – The HR Dept Shropshire.  She is a HR Professional with over 25 years experience across a wide range of local services and industries.

Start Time – 10am –  2pm  With a short break

How to Manage Employee Absence

DETAILSExpand panel
July 24, 2019
10:00 am
The Cirencester Growth Hub Stroud Road Cirencester GL7 6JR

Employee absence is a significant cost for many businesses. Employees may need time off for a variety of reasons, from short-term sickness to longer-term health issues. Effective absence management seeks to support the needs of employees while providing clear and consistent guidance to avoid unauthorised absence or inappropriate use of sick pay schemes.This workshop will take a closer look at sickness absence, the reasons for it, and its implications for businesses. We will offer guidance on how businesses can measure absence, what should be included in an absence policy, and practical advice on how to manage short- and long-term absence. We will also look at the legal position when addressing unacceptable absence.
