HR functions across the country are snowed-under handling employee issues that could have been dealt with at management level, or often avoided completely with correct management.
Line managers don’t need to understand the nuts and bolts of employment law, but it is crucial that they know how to spot warning signals and how to handle issues in an appropriate and lawful manner.
In the tricky business of managing people, there are many employment law pitfalls that most managers are unaware of. These pitfalls could result in employee grievances or even costly employment tribunals.
This session will assist line managers, business owners and junior HR staff to gain confidence in handling issues with employees in the correct manner, and lessening the need to escalate matters through increasingly time consuming and expensive processes.
- Knowing when to instigate formal procedures for the following issues: Sickness absence, Poor performance, Investigations and Disciplinary procedures
- Dealing with employee grievances and workplace conflict
- Potentially fair reasons for turning down flexible working applications
- Avoiding unfair dismissals
By the end of this seminar, participants should be able to understand:
- Potential people problem pitfalls and how to avoid them
- The statutory dismissal procedure
- The Five Potentially Fair Reasons for dismissal and how to implement fair warnings
- How these topics relate to the workplace using real-life scenarios from our experience
- How communication and leadership can avoid people problems from arising
