This course will be run virtually via Zoom over two weeks

  • Thursday 14 March (8:30am-12:30pm)
  • Thursday 21 March (8:30am-12:30pm)

Taking a practical approach, we will highlight the issues that HR professionals are typically required to advise on, and providing legal and usable guidance on how to manage these. We will draw on experiences from the group as well as "war stories" from the presenters to make the learning interactive and entertaining.

Attendees will build on their understanding of their obligations as an employer, managing holidays and leave, performance and discipline, managing workplace issues such as bullying, harassment and discrimination, organisational change processes, through to termination of employment, personal grievances & disputes.

Who should attend: Those who are new to HR (or coming back to it after some years away) or line managers with HR responsibilities.
