Expert HR and Employment Law Training

Employment law is a constantly evolving area therefore it is important that those with responsibility for HR/managing employee relations are not only aware of the law but, perhaps more importantly, are confident in how to apply it in the workplace. Disciplining staff; managing their underperformance; dealing with long term sickness absences; these can be daunting tasks for those who are unclear on what they can and cannot say and do. This means that they sometimes choose not to deal with issues which can be counterproductive in the long term. By sharing our experience through either a full or half day training course we aim to give managers a better understanding of employment law and, crucially, the confidence to deal with difficult situations.

Employment law is fundamentally about managing relationships and, at Hewetts, we have the experience to guide you through those difficult times. Whether you are a Finance Director with responsibility for HR issues or a specialist HR advisor, we can help you to make sense of the legal complexities surrounding this ever evolving area of law.

We offer half day or one day courses (subject to location), tailored to your organisational needs. The courses aim to provide delegates with a greater understanding of the purposes of the legislation, how it has been interpreted by tribunals (where possible) and how they can apply it in practice. This is usually done through a talk followed by realistic case studies where participants discuss workplace scenarios and how to deal with them.

Topics include:-

  • How to Discipline Employees – investigation, disciplinary hearing, appeal hearing, appropriate penalty.
  • How to Conduct a Redundancy Exercise – how to select employees, what to do and say, who to involve, how long the process needs to take.
  • How to Conduct a Performance Management Process – how to begin the process, what to say, how long to manage the process, whether it is ever fair to dismiss, whether to give notice.
  • When and How to Conduct a Pre Termination Conversation / offer a settlement agreement – what to avoid and what to include, whether to allow the employee to be accompanied, considering the risks.

The above are some of the more popular topics but we offer training in all areas of employment law.
