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 workshop 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 workshop 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
