LEGAL FOCUS: Why should we do this training?

Fear of legal consequences is often blamed as a reason inexperienced managers avoid dealing with issues. Our programme helps managers gain confidence in their knowledge of employment law, helping them tackle resolvable issues and, just as importantly, raising their awareness of when to ask a question or seek assistance from the HR team at myHRdept.

Overview of the myHRdept intro to employment law programme

This interactive small-group programme covers the main sources of UK employment law, and looks at the origins of other terms of employment, from the employment contract to implied; legal and incorporated terms.

We’ll look at enforcement and penalties as well as well as how to avoid ‘terms creep’ through inadvertent custom and practice. The workshop aims to demystify employment law and build a knowledge of how the main laws impact on various phases of the employment cycle, from recruitment to termination.

The workshop allows plenty of time for questions – and delegates always have a lot! As well as building your people manager’s confidence, the session allows for discussion around real issues and how they should (and should not) be handled.
