Employment Law webinar series: Managing each stage of the employment life cycle

Our three-part employment law webinar series presented by Chris Baldock will explore the key stages of the employment life cycle over the course of six weeks.

What will it cover?

Webinar One – Starting on the right foot: Managing the beginning of an employment relationship

The first webinar in the series covered considerations at the beginning of the relationship, including:

  • What type of arrangement is appropriate: permanent, fixed-term,  casual or contractor?
  • What documentation do you need?
  • Is there a union presence in the workplace?
  • Should you use a probationary period, or if your business has fewer than 20 employees, a trial period, and what is the difference?

Presented live on 15 October and is now available as a recording*

Webinar Two – Going the distance: Managing the middle stage of an employment relationship

This session will cover:

  • What are ‘minimum entitlements' and the consequences of non-compliance
  • How to amend an employment agreement in a way that mitigates legal risk
  • Best practice processes for managing performance and attendance issues
  • Dos & don’ts when an employee is on an extended period of sick leave

Presented live on 5 November and is now available as a recording*

Webinar Three – Drawing to a close: Managing the end of an employment relationship

This session will cover:

  • When is dismissal justified – the legal test of ‘justification’
  • Managing misconduct & serious misconduct – and what is the difference
  • Best practice processes for redundancy
  • The finer details of termination – final pay, notice, garden leave, company property and restraints

Tuesday 26 November 2019, 9:00am – 10:00am
