2019 HR Events – Get a Head Start in HR

2019 HR Events | HR Webinars & Seminars | HR Solutions

With some industrious forward planning, HR Solutions have already got off to a great head start with the line-up of HR events planned for you in 2019, several of which are free to attend.  We look forward to catching up with you at one or some of our upcoming webinars, interactive workshops and seminars.  Lunch, refreshments and opportunities for you to speak to our consultants on a one-to-one basis as well as network with other delegates are provided for you at our workshops and seminars.

Be quick to save your spot as places are limited. Here’s a summary of what’s on offer:

 

Brexit and the Year Ahead (Free Webinar)

No one can fully understand what will happen with Brexit, either way, and we don’t pretend to. However, in the short term, what we do know is that we are already starting to see the face of HR and employment law being re-shaped by Brexit. With forward planning, HR practices can support a business with riding the wave of uncertainty and in this webinar, we will begin to indicate how.

Brexit for Employers Interactive Workshop

Join us for this interactive workshop where we will consider the impact of Brexit on SME’s and how HR can manage the issues they face.

Through a HR perspective, we will respond to the hopes and fears our delegates bring to the session and provide practical support with matters such as:

– Looking at what legislative changes are on the horizon, particularly regarding EU law currently implemented in the UK.
– Providing practical strategies on how employers may safely adapt their compliance practices in the light of any employment law changes that may come about.
– Adapting policies in line with changes to the law.
– Using this time of change and uncertainty to modernise your HR practices to help get ahead of your competitors by improving your employer brand in the process.
– Responding to concerns of your EU national employees.

Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Act 2018 (Free Webinar)

Currently, an employer is not automatically obligated to permit a parent to have authorised absence from work to mourn the recent loss of a child. This may seem surprising to some, but it is in line with the fact that there is no statutory right to compassionate leave.

The criteria which will surround parental bereavement leave and pay went through consultation which ended in June 2018. The responses were reviewed, and the details of the Act have been published meaning that HR departments and managers can now start planning (or revising) their approach, procedures and policies, so they may ensure they can at least get the basics handled correctly at such a tragic time. There is not yet a specific date for when this will be enforced, but it is likely to be in 2020 at the latest.

Absence Management Interactive Workshop

Balancing both compliance with employment law, and effective absence management at work can be a minefield for managers. In this interactive workshop we’ll cut through the legal jargon and help you to understand what the red tape means in real terms. More importantly, we’ll then provide practical absence management advice because it is here that tribunal cases are lost and won.

We’ll equip you with tools that you may use to manage your employees, and we’ll talk to you about the issues you have, provide you with real and actionable HR tips and give advice on absence management strategy. You will leave feeling that you can approach these situations with confidence, significantly reduce risk, save time and support your business.

The absence management topics we’ll cover are:

– Employee rights during absence (including the Equality Act 2010)
– Strategies to minimise absenteeism
– How to manage an AWOL employee
– Pay and other benefits
– Risks of assuming resignation
– Getting the basics of long-term sick right
