“Elvis has left the building” – How to effectively exit problem employees from your business in a timely, cost effective and low risk way.

Back by popular demand! We received fantastic feedback on this training course which we ran last year, so we’re running it again as a webinar so that you can attend from wherever you are based, in a cost and time efficient way.

Let’s face it, at some time or other most organisations want and need to exit employees from the business and don’t want to go through lengthy and time consuming redundancy, performance or disciplinary processes (particularly if dealing with a senior employee or manager). Terminating employment in a quick, reasonably priced and low risk way usually means negotiating an exit under a Settlement Agreement.

Where an employee’s damaging the organisation, a “commercial approach” can be the most effective strategy for the business on a pure cost/benefit analysis. This training course is not about terminating employment in a legally compliant way, it’s all about adopting the most commercial approach.

Join us for our next Training Works webinar where we will consider: What strategies you can use to strengthen your position in negotiating an employee exit and the most favourable level of settlement payment How you calculate what a “fair value” settlement payment is for the business when agreeing an employee exit What the recent laws on “protected conversations” mean for your business What are the ins and outs of Settlement Agreements, and how you can handle the issues that typically come up when negotiating these.

You will come away from this training course with a better understanding of how and when it’s best to introduce exit discussions with problem employees, how to achieve a fair value settlement and how to deal with the practical details of finalising Settlement Agreements which are needed to protect your business.

The cost of the webinar session is just £50 per person plus VAT. If you would like to register for this webinar please contact us on 0161 836 8874 or e-mail joanne.harris@brabners.com to request a booking form. Places will be confirmed on receipt of payment.

A course to provide you with the essential skills and knowledge to handle day to day employee relations issues in a timely, pragmatic and cost effective way

This course is a perfect introduction to the key areas of UK Employment Law and covers the full range of topics and practice areas which you are likely to come across day to day in your business. For Managers who have recently taken on responsibility for managing people or for HR Professionals who are relatively new to their role, this course will give you the opportunity to gain a really strong foundation and understanding of the legal responsibilities under UK Employment Law, as well as gaining a critical practical and commercial slant on how to deal with common employee relations issues. This course will help you become better at managing employee relations and associated risks within your business.

The course will take place over two days to give us the time needed to cover all of the key areas and really imbed knowledge and understanding. We understand that training on legal topics can sometimes be dry, but as always with the training at Brabners, the sessions over the two days will be littered with fun, interesting and interactive case studies, games and quizzes to bring the training to life and enhance the learning experience.

The course programme will cover: 
• Getting the employment relationship right from the start (the recruitment process, the employment contract and related issues such as references).
• Dealing with disciplinary and grievance processes and top tips for managing the practical issues that commonly arise.
• How to effectively performance manage employees.
• Dealing with equality issues in the workplace, including a practical session on workplace harassment.
• Getting to grips with family friendly rights such as maternity, paternity and adoption rights, parental leave and flexible working.
• How to manage long-term and short-term absence.
• Avoiding risk when handling a redundancy process.
• How to change terms and conditions of employment for staff.
• Terminating the employment relationship.
• The "commercial option" - how to effectively conduct and negotiate "without prejudice" exits with staff.
As well as the learning benefits of attending this course, delegates will also receive within the course fee a comprehensive hand out on the areas covered, as well as a detailed and practical guide on handling disciplinary and grievance issues which includes standard documents, letters and forms which will help any business save time and resource when dealing with disciplinary and grievance cases.

You can attend this two day training session for the very competitive price of £395 plus VAT per person. The feedback we receive from the delegates who attend our training sessions is that the value and benefit they get from the sessions far outweighs the course fee, and we are confident that this intensive two day course will be no different. Bookings will be confirmed once payment has been received.

The course will be delivered by one of our specialist and very experienced employment lawyers and trainers, Marcus Difelice.

How well does your business manage staff sickness?
Do you proactively and effectively deal with employees on long-term sick?
What about employees on short-term or intermittent absence?

Too many businesses struggle to deal with the legal complexities of staff absence, and if your business is one of them, then this training course will help you manage workplace absence proactively and with positive results, which can reduce cost, and improve employee relations and productivity in your business. There has never been a more important time for line managers to have the essential skills and knowledge to deal with the problem of workplace absence. This practical and interactive course will give you an insight into the relevant legal issues and good practise techniques, dispel some of the common myths, as well as being full of practical hints and tips to help you manage the difficult scenarios that often arise in this area.

So who should attend the session? If you work in HR, or are a line manager or supervisor with responsibility for the management of sickness absence in your teams, then this course is essential for you. Once back in the workplace you’ll be able to:
- differentiate between the best approaches for addressing short-term and long-term absence.
- fully comply with the strict legal requirements in relation to absence management.
- deal effectively with the complex and potentially costly Disability Discrimination issues that often arise in absence cases.
- deal with the common and difficult scenarios that so often arise in absence management, like un-cooperate employees, conflicting medical information and absence linked to grievances and other side issues.

As always with Brabners training sessions, interactive and engaging case studies will be used which encourage group discussion and the sharing of know-how between delegates, and which enhance the overall learning experience.

You can attend this training session for the competitive price of £50 plus VAT per person. We’re sure you will find the session great value for money and we look forward to seeing you there. Bookings will be confirmed once payment has been received.

Webinar

You want to change the working hours or duties of your employees. 

You want to withhold a bonus from some staff.

You want to move some of your employees to work from a different location.

You don’t want to pay sick pay to an employee where you think they are just avoiding a disciplinary meeting.

You want to put someone on garden leave during their notice period.

You want to stop a former employee poaching your customers and employees after they have left.

All of these things and more can potentially be achieved through a good employment contract.  So often employers regard their standard employment contract as a basic commodity of their business.  They don’t see the employment contract as a tool which can help empower them in the employment relationship and protect their business both while employees work for them and after they leave.  But that is exactly what an employment contract can do if it contains the right provisions and is prepared in the right way.  The right employment contract can empower a business in dealing with employee relation issues and disputes, and help save time and cost. 

Join us for our next Training Works Webinar where we will consider:-

• Why it is important to have the right Employment Contracts in place (not just because it is a legal requirement but because it helps your business).
• What provisions should you have in the Employment Contract to deal with issues such as hours of work, duties, pay and bonuses, relocation, sick pay, termination, suspension and employment protection during and post employment.
• How you can introduce those provisions in to Employment Contracts if they are not already in there.

The cost of the webinar session is just £50 per person plus VAT.

  • According to the CBI’s “Fit For Purpose Absence and workplace health survey 2013” the direct cost of workplace absence is £14billion. There has therefore never been a more important time for line managers and those who work in HR to have the essential skills and knowledge to deal with the problem of workplace absence.
     
  • This training course will help you identify areas of potential risk and practices which can reduce costs, limit exposure to tribunal claims and help you better deal with the challenge of workplace absence caused by ill health.
     
  • This course will give you an understanding of the relevant legal issues and introduce good practice techniques for issues such as the way in which short- term and long- term ill health absence should be managed, when and how you should obtain medical evidence, how to deal with potential issues of disability discrimination as well as ill- health retirement and permanent health insurance, holidays and long- term sickness absence
