One thing in business is sure, there will always be change. During our seminar we will help you manoeuvre the employment law minefield when it comes to implementing changes in your business. We will be
talking you through restructures, reorganisations and redundancies.

Some of the topics will include:

– What to do when a restructure leads to a redundancy
– Individual and collective redundancy – the do’s and don’ts
– Consultation and how to make it truly meaningful
– The survivors – how not to overlook the people whose roles were safe

With Employment Law currently a little on the quiet side, Helen Colechin will talk about social media and your business reputation, sharing some interesting cases with fair or unfair dismissal rulings plus some practical steps for
maintaining a good reputation.
Finally, Kirk Thompson from the Health & Safety Dept will discuss DSE assessments and what you need to know as an employer to comply with the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations.

Who is it for?

None of us like to admit there are simmerings of conflict where we work, but at some point, if we haven’t already, we will be faced with a conflict situation. Knowing what it is and how to deal with it is key to ensuring it doesn’t escalate. In this informative and interactive workshop, we will take you   on a practical tour of Managing Conflict, covering the 3 R’s – Recognising, Responding and Resolving. We will not only explore conflict in the workplace, but give you practical tips on handling those difficult conversations and an insight into the role of mediation.

Delegates are offered a light sandwich lunch.
