HR regulations: a labour of love or more like hard labour? Either way, if you deal with them regularly you’ll need to understand the ins and outs. But how well do you know the crucial details of labour law? Could you work more efficiently?
In the course of a morning, BritCham and CBBC’s panel of four will explain different aspects of labour law based on their expertise in HR and legal matters. This will be followed by a half-hour Q&A slot for audience members to put queries to the panel.
Session 1 will cover legal documents in the employment relationship. The necessary documents will be explained, and case studies used to illustrate their importance in employer/staff relations.
Session 2 will outline the employee termination process. The panel will clarify the relevant regulations, and discuss how you can effectively - and legally - deal with contractual terminations.
Session 3 will give a brief overview of trade unions.
Who should attend?
The forum is especially relevant to HR and legal professionals, but is open to any members who wish to learn more about the subject or meet practitioners in these fields.
