All employers – whatever the size must provide their employees with written terms of their employment within the first two months of them joining the organisation. Tribunals typically compensate employees with an award of four weeks’ pay when an employer fails to comply.
In order to help our clients and offer extensive support, White Horse Employment have teamed up with Philip McCabe, Associate Solicitor and Employment Law Specialist at Forrester Sylvester Mackett to offer a FREE* Drafting Master Class to discuss the thorny issue of employment contracts and provide you with an invaluable opportunity to have your questions answered by an expert with a wealth of employment law experience.
Thursday 8th May 2014, 9.30am to 11.30am
Registration: 9.00am, Cumberwell Park, Bradford-on-Avon

What will delegates achieve?
We use practical examples and case studies to encourage participation by all delegates, improve retention of information and to make the session as informal as possible.
By the end of the workshop session delegates will:
- be familiar with the content of the relevant law
- be able to put in place a review or preparation of appropriate contracts and policies
- recognise the different requirements for different types of worker
- avoid legal claims arising from deficient drafting of contracts and policies
