Business Protection Seminar (2018 Programme)


Session 3: Resolving Grievances, Focusing on Sexual Harassment.


HRC Law, Business Protection Logo - Lighthouse


HRC Law’s Business Protection Programme looks at the legal issues which employers face, and the wider commercial impact these issues can have on your business and on managing your employees.  Business owner/managers, HR professionals and operational managers – these are for you!

Dealing with grievances effectively is a great way to minimise the likelihood of an HR issue turning into an employment claim.  If you can show that you have done so correctly, it will help you if you do end up before a Tribunal.

During this session, we’ll look at the Acas Code, explore the need for internal policies and procedures and discuss recent case law.  We will also give some practical tips and examples.

With sexual harassment very much in the news, we’ll give particular focus to dealing with grievances of this nature, including looking at what sexual harassment is and how employers can help to prevent it, including a brief discussion of the recommendations in the ECHR’s Report, ‘Turning the Tables’.

As always, there’ll be opportunities for questions and discussion with our panel of experts, Robert Maddocks and Siobhan Howard-Palmer.
