  • Adjustments - What is reasonable?

    When a disabled job applicant or employee is ‘substantially’ disadvantaged, the employer has a duty to make reasonable adjustments. The difficulty is that what is ‘reasonable’ depends upon the circumstances of each case, and upon the size and resources of the employer. In addition, line-managers are frequently asked to consider a range of individual requests for flexibility which may appear to amount to ‘special treatment’.
  • Advanced employee investigation interview skills and tactics

    In recognition of the rising expectations judges have of an employer's investigation process and documentation, and the ever increasing complexity of some employee investigations, more and more organisations are recognising that the conduct of investigations is a specialist role, and developing in-house teams of dedicated management investigators.
  • Austrian employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    Although there are similarities, it is dangerous to consider the German and Austrian employment law systems to be one and the same. Austrian law is distinct in many ways, most importantly in relation to probationary periods, the termination of employment contracts and severance. There are also sufficient differences in contract law to make the use of one model employment contract, for German and Austrian employees, a potentially expensive error for employers.
  • Avoiding victimisation - infamy, infamy...

    Every experienced HR professional will have to deal with a disgruntled employee who cannot move on from an incident, or disappointment, at work. A fair grievance process may have been followed and a thorough investigation held, but some employees simply cannot get over an outcome. This workshop provides a safe space to talk about the warning signs and the steps you can take.
  • Belgian employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    An employer found guilty of discrimination by a Belgian court can face a sentence of up to one year in prison. There is no concept of redundancy in Belgium and no concept of unfair dismissal either.
  • Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management

    This Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management training course is relevant to HR and recruitment professionals from Tier 2 and 5 sponsors (including potential sponsors) who use the sponsor management system or have responsibility for a sponsor licence. Knowledge of the points-based system is assumed.
  • Complex employment disputes - cases from hell

    Sometimes, from apparently simple facts, an employment dispute can cause damage far beyond the costs and issues that had appeared to be at stake, while consuming vast amounts of time and resources. And then there is the data. How do you access and manage years of dispersed electronic and paper data and what is your strategy for disclosure? This briefing explores classic warning signs and risk mitigation measures, as well as cost-effective ways to search and manage data.
  • Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 - Education sector: Law and practice

    As the first prosecutions under CDM 2015 are now reaching the Courts, Schools, Colleges and Universities must ensure compliance or risk a significant fine following conviction of a criminal offence.
  • Current developments in employment law - Power and trust*?

    In the Spring of 2018 the GDPR comes into force and it is the publication deadline for the first gender pay reports. The National Living Wage will rise to £7.83, on its way to around £9 by 2020. The Government will respond to the Taylor Review, a new Immigration Bill is expected and Tribunal claims are rising significantly.
  • Driving for work - Records, police investigation and law

    There are over 500 ‘driving for work deaths’ a year and many more serious injuries. Most organisations have a driving for work policy which is often aspirational in part. If so, a Police/Regulatory investigation will highlight gaps between what you have said and what you have done. This briefing will update you on the risks and help you encourage safer driving across your organisation.
  • Dutch employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    It is commonly believed that it is difficult and expensive to terminate an employment contract in the Netherlands. Employee rights are well protected under Dutch law, especially in dismissal cases, but employers are able to swiftly adjust staff levels in their company to changes, for example a fluctuation in workload. A wide variety of options are available for employers to hire people in a flexible manner provided that the rules are used properly.
  • Employee investigations

    Employment tribunals expect employers to show that they have undertaken a fair and thorough investigation of complaints. This investigation can be time-consuming and complicated. However, if carried out early and correctly, an investigation should contain a problem and minimise distraction from the business.
  • Employee relations - working effectively with your union and employee representatives

    A decline in industrial action and a trend within HR functions toward specialism, means that many senior managers lack experience of working with unions and employee representatives.
  • Employees and mental health - responsibility and adjustment (with OH Assist)

    At any time, 1 in 5 of the working population will have a mental health disorder, most commonly anxiety or depression, and a further 1 in 6 will have symptoms of mental ill health, including substance dependence*. Most of these people will recover from their illness.
  • Essential employment law for HR professionals

    HR professionals and managers need to understand the legal framework that underpins the employment relationship.
  • Essential immigration law for employers

    Increasing compliance activity, the Government’s commitment to a net migration target and Brexit make it crucial that employers have a clear understanding of right to work issues. This course covers the UK immigration system, in the context of the employment life cycle, the areas of law that apply and competing risks and penalties.
  • European HR: cross-border employment law

    Managing teams of people is challenging at the best of times. Working across European borders is even more difficult due to cultural and legal differences.
  • Eversheds Sutherland Academy for in-house lawyers – the essentials of being commercial

    Eversheds Sutherland Academy is a unique three-day residential commercial awareness programme designed specifically for in-house lawyers.
  • French employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    Based on the Napoleonic code and amended by statute ever since, French employment law is markedly different from the UK’s.
  • GDPR and HR - Game-changing powers

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies in all the EU member states and the UK from 25 May 2018.
  • German employment law training - practical guidance and local insights

    Germany is a major trading partner for many countries throughout the world, not to mention the most important single market in the European Union.
  • Health and safety update - Painful lessons

    Brexit should make little difference to health and safety law and nothing much has changed in terms of safety legislation either, but the Drayton Manor Theme Park and Grenfell Tower tragedies are painful reminders that danger lurks where we may not expect it.
  • HR summer school: Future-ready HR

    Given the demographic, technological and political shocks employers are likely to face in the next decade, what should HR stop doing or continue to do, and what are the new areas of focus? This Summer School provides different insights and ideas about the new opportunities HR professionals have to shape their organisations and their employees’ experience.
  • Immigration law: tier 4 sponsor obligations - update for education institutions

    Education providers who sponsor, or intend to sponsor international students should attend this course. Tier 4 has been subject to increased scrutiny recently, in terms of changes to the sponsor guidance and UK Visas and Immigration inspections. Specialist lawyers will update you on recent guidance and practical areas to focus on to ensure compliance. They will share their experiences of assisting sponsors through UKVI inspections and how to prepare for an inspection.
  • International pensions promises: mobility, legacy risk and new territory

    Although harmonisation and equal treatment are almost always the most efficient options for an international company, every country’s retirement benefit provision is strongly influenced by local law, cultural expectations and economic circumstances.
