FREE* Briefing on Disability and Long-term sickness 21st June 2018

One of the most challenging workplace issues for any employer – large or small, is how to handle a member of staff who is on long term sick leave or has an illness which affects their work.

Get the process wrong and you risk unsettling your workers or facing a claim for unfair dismissal. If the worker has a disability, you are in danger of a discrimination claim under the Equality Act. The average Tribunal award is £32,000.

No employer – whatever their size can escape liability.

To help support our clients, we are joining up again with our friends from  White Horse Employment  to offer a FREE* briefing to discuss how employers can protect their business and reputations and provide them with an invaluable opportunity to have their questions answered by an expert with a wealth of employment law experience. 

Thursday 21st June 2018, 9.30 am to 11.30am

Registration: 9:00am, Cumberwell Park, Bradford-on-Avon
