Employment Law for Small Business
Many small employers find the prospect of employing and managing staff within the complex and frequently changing context of employment legislation a daunting task. With few concessions made to the small employer, the government looks set to continue to develop and adapt employment law in the years to come, adding a real headache for business owners who find it hard to keep pace with the nuances of the law and the potentially devastating implications of getting it wrong. This workshop is designed and delivered exclusively to small business owners and offers a practical interpretation of current and anticipated legislation with common sense guidance to employers on how best to manage staff on a day to day basis without falling foul of their legal obligations.
The Workshop covers the basic requirements that employers need to meet to ensure that they are complying with current employment law, and some practical tips on how to manage potentially difficult situations from absence management through grievance, disciplinary to restructure, redundancy and dismissal. We examine the facts and fiction attached to existing legislation and re-affirm the rights of employers to manage and to make decisions that are critical to their business. We look at how to conduct investigations, disciplinary hearings and workplace mediation as well as some tips on managing performance, attendance and staff development.
You will discover:
- What infrastructure you need to put in place to minimise the risk of expensive and time consuming disputes.
- A set of systems and processes to assist you to operate a fair people management strategy
- An appreciation of current legislation and its practical application
- An understanding of the implications of anticipated employment law for you and your business
