  • Adjustments - What is reasonable?

    When a disabled job applicant or employee is ‘substantially’ disadvantaged, the employer has a duty to make reasonable adjustments. The difficulty is that what is ‘reasonable’ depends upon the circumstances of each case, and upon the size and resources of the employer. In addition, line-managers are frequently asked to consider a range of individual requests for flexibility which may appear to amount to ‘special treatment’.
  • Advanced employee investigation interview skills and tactics

    In recognition of the rising expectations judges have of an employer's investigation process and documentation, and the ever increasing complexity of some employee investigations, more and more organisations are recognising that the conduct of investigations is a specialist role, and developing in-house teams of dedicated management investigators.
  • Avoiding victimisation - infamy, infamy...

    Every experienced HR professional will have to deal with a disgruntled employee who cannot move on from an incident, or disappointment, at work. A fair grievance process may have been followed and a thorough investigation held, but some employees simply cannot get over an outcome. This workshop provides a safe space to talk about the warning signs and the steps you can take.
  • Belgian employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    An employer found guilty of discrimination by a Belgian court can face a sentence of up to one year in prison. There is no concept of redundancy in Belgium and no concept of unfair dismissal either.
  • Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management

    This Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management training course is relevant to HR and recruitment professionals from Tier 2 and 5 sponsors (including potential sponsors) who use the sponsor management system or have responsibility for a sponsor licence.

  • Central and Eastern European HR: employment law in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia and Slovakia

    The Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries have distinctive employment law frameworks which an increasing number of HR practitioners and inhouse lawyers must come to terms with.
  • Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 - Education sector: Law and practice

    As the first prosecutions under CDM 2015 are now reaching the Courts, Schools, Colleges and Universities must ensure compliance or risk a significant fine following conviction of a criminal offence.
  • Contracts - common pitfalls and how to avoid them

    Contracts go wrong all the time. Parties will fight for their rights and the fall-out can be costly and a drain on management time. Getting your contracts right from the beginning may help stop disputes arising in the first place. You will also be better placed to keep contractual relationships on track if difficult issues arise or the other party wishes to re-negotiate.
  • Crisis, HR and PR

    High profile cases of sexual harrassment have taught us nothing new about the law. Reputable organisations, with sophisticated HR awareness, were embarrassed by behaviours that were obviously wrong and then humiliated as the story unfolded. In each case there were rumours … and yet!
  • Current developments in employment law - Power and trust*?

    In the Spring of 2018 the GDPR comes into force and it is the publication deadline for the first gender pay reports. The National Living Wage will rise to £7.83, on its way to around £9 by 2020. The Government will respond to the Taylor Review, a new Immigration Bill is expected and Tribunal claims are rising significantly.
  • Delivering successful campus development projects - effectively risk managing the pitfalls

    In an increasingly global market quality and innovation in campus facilities can be a key differential for any institution. It attracts talent and promotes the brand. But developing state of the art buildings to live and learn on campus is a complex business. Every development is unique and has its own issues to protect but successfully delivering on time and on budget requires careful structured planning to eliminate and mitigate potential risk.
  • Disclosure and barring update - Safeguarding: changes, misconceptions and duties

    The Disclosure and Barring Service’s remit and processes have changed recently, widening access and using new technology to help employers make safer employment decisions. But DBS compliance assessments show that some Registered Bodies continue to make basic errors, such as failing to follow identity checking guidance or applying for inappropriate and unlawful barring list checks.
  • Driving for work - Records, police investigation and law

    There are over 500 ‘driving for work deaths’ a year and many more serious injuries. Most organisations have a driving for work policy which is often aspirational in part. If so, a Police/Regulatory investigation will highlight gaps between what you have said and what you have done. This briefing will update you on the risks and help you encourage safer driving across your organisation.
  • Dutch employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    It is commonly believed that it is difficult and expensive to terminate an employment contract in the Netherlands. Employee rights are well protected under Dutch law, especially in dismissal cases, but employers are able to swiftly adjust staff levels in their company to changes, for example a fluctuation in workload. A wide variety of options are available for employers to hire people in a flexible manner provided that the rules are used properly.
  • Employee investigations

    Employment tribunals expect employers to show that they have undertaken a fair and thorough investigation of complaints. This investigation can be time-consuming and complicated. However, if carried out early and correctly, an investigation should contain a problem and minimise distraction from the business.
  • Employee relations - working effectively with your union and employee representatives

    A decline in industrial action and a trend within HR functions toward specialism, means that many senior managers lack experience of working with unions and employee representatives.

  • Essential employment law for HR professionals

    HR professionals and managers need to understand the legal framework that underpins the employment relationship.
  • Essential immigration law for employers

    Increasing compliance activity, the Government’s commitment to a net migration target and Brexit make it crucial that employers have a clear understanding of right to work issues. This course covers the UK immigration system, in the context of the employment life cycle, the areas of law that apply and competing risks and penalties.
  • European HR: cross-border employment law

    Managing teams of people is challenging at the best of times. Working across European borders is even more difficult due to cultural and legal differences.
