Thinking ahead – and keeping a lid on the employment law gremlins
Geraldine Elliott - RPC
Even with recent relaxation in rules governing employment this remains a heavily regulated area, and one in which the uninitiated employer can easily find itself coming unstuck.
The seminar will outline some of the key "need to know" principles. We will be looking at where things can go wrong and how, with some planning, problems can be avoided.
The seminar will also discuss some typical tricky situations and how to navigate a way through. This will include common concerns such as tackling under performance, managing flexible working, and understanding where the line can be drawn between actively managing the staff and inadvertently falling foul of anti-discrimination rules.
Discussion and sharing of the experiences of delegates will be welcome.
