Virtual Employment Law Workshop: Hiring, Firing and Flexible Working

During this interactive webinar, the Employment Team will provide you with effective and practical guidance on some of the key issues to consider when undertaking recruitment, carrying out dismissals and dealing with flexible working requests.

We will also include some pointers around homeworking, as well as an update on what we know so far about the government’s recently announced Job Support Scheme.

I am sure most of us will have seen a significant increase in dismissals, particularly by reason of redundancy, as well as an increase in homeworking as we head into the ‘new normal’. We are also seeing some businesses recruiting more staff, particularly to work on a casual basis during these unprecedented times. All scenarios could see employers increase their risk of discrimination and unfair dismissal claims, which can decrease morale and impact commercial reputation. In this virtual session we will be covering the following key topics to help you limit the risks to your organisations:

  • Avoiding discrimination when recruiting;
  • Key ways to assist in carrying out fair dismissals;
  • Mitigating risks when terminating employment;
  • Hints and Tips on how to effectively deal with flexible working, including homeworking;
  • The Job Support Scheme; and
  • An interactive Q&A Session.

We look forward to seeing you all (virtually), very soon!

What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.
