Managing Absence (1/2 Day)
24th January 2017 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm£250
Managing Absence in the Workplace
BPI understands that often this area is seen as a complex minefield that worries employers, especially smaller organisations, who would far rather invest in job creation than disputes with employees.
Suitable for anyone who has to manage staff absence
In this half day course a solicitor will provide you with a realistic overview of the main areas of Managing Absence in the workplace:
- leave with a better understanding of the law in relation to unfair dismissal and disability under the Equality Act 2010 and the duties it places on an employer
- feel more confident about taking action and the employer’s rights in any absence situation
This half-day session will focus on the practical tools any employer has available to them to help manage instances of both short-term and long-term absence from work. Anna Denton-Jones of Refreshing Law Limited (a local solicitor specialising in employment law) brings over 16 years of experience in this subject and can share insights about what the pros and cons of different approaches might be.
You will discuss case studies involving scenarios employers may face throughout the employment lifecycle to bring how all this works in reality to life.
There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, share stories and compare notes with other delegates about how their organisations handle things.
