How confident are you in dealing with employment law issues?

23 March 2018

If you find the ever-changing landscape of employment law  and the reams of jargon-filled official guidance daunting, you’re not alone.

Many of our clients have found our employment law seminars to be a “lifeline” and an “invaluable resource”. Our seminars and breakfast briefings break down the latest case law and need-to-know guidance in an easy-to-digest, interactive way. For a full list of upcoming topics, click here to visit our events page.

If you are too busy to fit this into your hectic schedule, our Legal 500-rated team can come to your workplace to deliver training on a myriad of employment law topics, including (but not limited to):

  • handling grievances
  • running disciplinary procedures
  • equality, diversity and workplace culture
  • combatting discrimination in the workplace
  • the Bribery Act
  • the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • business immigration (including compliance with sponsor licence duties and right-to-work checks)

Employment law knowledge isn’t just important for HR teams and management – you may thank yourself later for training a wider range of staff too. Partner and head of department Matthew Clayton said: “Many employers don’t realise that they can be automatically liable for what their employees do, when it comes to discrimination, harassment or bribery. Usually the only defence is that the employer took ‘reasonable steps’ to prevent the wrongdoing from occurring. It is not just a question of having a policy gathering dust in a folder which nobody has ever read.

It is necessary for employers to show that they have spread the right message throughout the organisation, if appropriate by training staff on the issues”.

For more information on in-house training, contact Matthew at matthew.clayton@willans.co.uk. Prices are per session, not per delegate.
