All employers have a legal duty to provide adequate training to their staff and managers. We provide training to employers and employees to ensure we make employment law more accessible for businesses and HR professionals.

Most employers forget that employees have potential that can be maximized for the good of the business, ultimately to have a positive effect on profit margins.

We provide bespoke training for any organisation, to ensure your employees are being trained in the areas that you require.

Training by practicing solicitors and barristers

Uniquely, our seminars are given by practicing solicitors and barristers who not only have vast experience of appearing in employment tribunals but who have also worked closely with HR professionals for a number of years advising upon and chairing the internal processes such as disciplinary hearings which so often lead to tribunal hearings. Our experience through the entire process is unrivaled.

Popular training subjects include:

  • Managing long term sickness & absenteeism
  • Bullying & harassment, and handling a formal grievance/ complaint
  • Performance Management
  • Conducting Formal disciplinary & Grievance procedures
AGENCY WORKERS REGULATIONS

Astonishingly, many employers still know nothing about the Agency Workers Regulations 2010. Make sure they are up to date with the requirements of these new laws – just hope they don’t shoot the messenger!
