HR Essentials - Free Seminar

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?

 The aim of this Seminar is to provide a broad and practical overview of HR and Employment Law issues which any business owner or manager needs to be aware of.

 This Seminar will cover the following:

•             ‘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 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 e.g. maternity, paternity, emergency dependant leave and flexible working

 •             Disciplinary and Grievance – how to discipline staff and deal with grievances    

 •             What the costs could be of ‘getting it wrong’ if you receive an Employment Tribunal claim
