    Dismissing staff can have serious implications if done badly.  The law requires that you have a fair reason for dismissal (e.g. restructuring is not necessarily redundancy) and that you follow fair processes.

    This course will cover the differences between a fair and unfair dismissal; why following the ACAS code and internal procedures is essential; and the key practical issues to consider when dealing with discipline, dismissal and redundancy processes.  The aim of the course is to encourage delegates to follow proper procedures and apply sound judgement.

    We have designed the course to suit those who are new to Management, as well as being a worthwhile refresher for the experienced Manager looking to enhance their existing skills, and wants to be more successful by learning new/different approaches.

    Our course is highly participative, practical in content, and intended to challenge our delegates into recognising there are always alternative ways of dealing with employee issues.

    • Employers' obligcations
    • and much more...

    This one hour module addresses the key questions regarding your management of homeworkers.  From their health and well-being to managing performance and attendance.  As homeworking is becoming more important it is crucial you learn how to manage it.
