Employment law is often thought of as being restrictive, with unclear guidance on the existing law available to employers who are struggling with regular change.
It is unsurprising then that some businesses are confused about what they can and cannot do with regard to their staff. We believe that what businesses really want is clear information and guidance on managing existing laws, and help to prepare for change.
Employment Training Options
Our experienced team write and deliver training courses for businesses on all employment issues, from recruitment to termination and everything in between. We start with a blank sheet and design the training around your needs. We use your policies and procedures to ensure that delegates can quickly identify issues and know what to do when they get back to their day jobs. We also run a separate training programme for HR professionals and managers.
In-house employment law training
This programme offers an essential guide to employment issues, including handling disciplinary and dismissal procedures, managing absenteeism and making employees redundant. The modules are separate and delegates can dip in or out of the programme to suit their learning objectives.
The courses are aimed at managers with direct supervisory responsibilities for their employees and will equip them with the skills to confidently deal with key employment issues.

Our national seminar programme is delivered in our London, Birmingham, Sheffield, Manchester and Leeds offices. This programme covers:
