Managers and HR professionals need an up-to-date working knowledge of employment law to help their organisations stay compliant. Employment and HR training from our specialist solicitors will teach you the key legal principles you need to do your job effectively.

Employment law in the UK changes frequently and so do your responsibilities as an employer. We can help you keep track of these changes and adapt your policies and processes accordingly.

Our extensive range of training courses covers a variety of topics and can help you:

  • Avoid costly employment tribunals, time-consuming investigations and reputational damage
  • Prepare for and handle tribunals or investigations if they do happen
  • Manage your legal responsibilities as efficiently as possible
  • Resolve workplace grievances and disputes
  • Implement flexible working schemes and inclusive policies.

All our training is designed to be practical and interactive so you come away with a real understanding of how to apply your new knowledge in the workplace.

We can also provide bespoke training designed specifically for your organisation and its individual business targets.

You’ll learn directly from specialist employment law solicitors from one of the UK’s top law firms. We have experience with all kinds of businesses from family-run SMEs to international corporations, across all major sectors and industries.

You can benefit wherever you’re based in the UK - training is available at any of our 17 offices across the country, remotely via video conferencing, or even at one of your own locations.
