Lane Neave employment law specialists Andrew Shaw and Gwen Drewitt will be sharing their knowledge and answering your questions on a variety of workplace law topics in this free seminar.

The Seminar will be looking at:

  • Disciplinary processes – the devil is in the detail!
    They will delve into some of the detail, including: When can you suspend? Do you have to undertake an investigation every time? What is the difference between performance and misconduct? What do you do if you receive a medical certificate or a representative is unavailable? How bad does the behaviour have to be to justify terminating for serious misconduct?
  • Restructuring and redundancies – is this the year?
    They will cover what you will need to justify a legitimate restructuring process that may result in redundancies, looking at both when jobs are superfluous to the business and when there are proposed material changes to a role. They will provide practical advice to protect your business in one of the more litigated areas of employment law.
  • 100 days and beyond
    Late 2023 saw a flurry of employment law activity following the change in Government. Fair Pay Agreements out, trial periods for all in, Holidays Act changes – who knows? They will run through where the country is at and where we are going from an employment law perspective.
