This half-day workshop is designed to help business owners to understand their key responsibilities as an employer, protect themselves and their business from employment-related risks, and manage their people effectively to achieve business success.
This introduction to the essentials of employing people will help you understand what you know and what you don’t know, and what you might need further support with.
It’s suitable for business owners ready to take on their first employee or someone who’s been an employer for a while but wants to refresh or update their knowledge.
In 4 hours, we’ll cover the basics of:
What makes you an employer?
Contracts of employment and statements of terms and conditions
Rules about working time
Pay, payslips and deductions
Absence due to illness or injury
Family related leave
Setting expectations and dealing with problems informally
Dealing with problems formally - disciplinary, capability and grievance procedures
Employee privacy and data protection
Health, safety and wellbeing
This will be a whistle-stop tour of all the basics, in plain English, with the opportunity to ask questions to make the content relevant to you and your business.
