Employment law is constantly changing and it can be hard to keep up-to-date. Our seminars and training sessions will explain the legal requirements you must follow as an employer and how you can stay compliant to avoid costly legal claims.

What Types Of Training, Seminars And Updates Do Irwin Mitchell Offer?

Every year, our employment solicitors look at what employment laws are changing and how these will affect businesses across all industry sectors. We include these changes and relevant case studies in our training programs to help your business prepare for them.

If you’re facing a legal claim, our training sessions can help you prepare and understand how the process works. We offer:

  • Disciplinary Hearing Training
  • Employee Representative Training
  • Employment Tribunal Familiarisation Training
  • Witness Familiarisation Training.

We also hold smaller workshops to give you insight and guidance on specific issues like Brexit and GDPR, and what they mean for your business.

Our employment team can also create bespoke training for your business’s specific employment and HR needs. One-to-one training sessions are available too if someone in your business needs specialised training.

Who Are They For?

Our training sessions are for anyone in your business who needs to keep up to date with employment law. They are mostly attended by:

  • HR practitioners
  • Line managers
  • Senior managers
  • Business owners.

How Do They Help?

You’ll get up-to-date information on current employment law changes and how to prepare your business for the future.

You won’t get confusing legal jargon or complicated legal documents. We’ll train you using plain English and you’ll be able to apply what you’ve learned to real world case studies, take part in quizzes, and use your skills in practical exercises.

Where Are Training Events?

Most of our training sessions take place in our offices across the UK. If you can’t make it to our offices, our team can deliver training wherever you’re based.

Can Irwin Mitchell Provide Bespoke In-house Training Or Seminars?

Every business is different and you need training to match your employment policies. We can provide bespoke seminars or workshops that reflect your culture, risk appetite and procedures.

We can help you better understand how changes in employment law will apply to your business so your staff are prepared to deal with any issues in future. We’ll also train any individuals or teams that need help preparing for employment tribunals or dealing with employee grievances.
