  • Adjustments - what is reasonable?

    When a disabled job applicant or employee is ‘substantially’ disadvantaged, the employer has a legal duty to make ‘reasonable’ adjustments. The difficulty is that what is reasonable depends upon the circumstances of each case, and upon the size and resources of the employer. As workplaces become more inclusive of older and disabled workers, as technology and work patterns change and good practice expectations rise, managers face an ever broadening range of requests.
  • Advanced employee investigations: skills and tactics

    Because of the rising expectations judges have of an employer’s investigation process, and the increasing complexity of some employee investigations, some organisations recognise investigation as a specialism and they are developing in-house teams of dedicated investigators.
  • A new immigration system – what it will mean for your recruitment of non-British/Irish staff - webinar

    There are fundamental changes to the UK’s immigration rules in the pipeline. These will result in a new immigration system applying to non-British and Irish citizens and will not just therefore mean changes to the existing provisions in respect of your recruitment of staff from outside the EEA but will also extend your institution’s compliance obligations to EEA nationals who have up until now have been exempt from the rules due to their right to freedom of movement
  • A new immigration system – what it will mean for your recruitment of non-British/Irish students - webinar

    There are fundamental changes to the UK’s immigration rules in the pipeline. These will result in a new immigration system applying to non-British and Irish citizens and will not just therefore mean changes to the existing provisions in respect of your recruitment of students from outside the EEA but will also extend your institution’s compliance obligations to EEA nationals who have up until now have been exempt from the rules due to their right to freedom of movement.
  • An introduction to contracts - what to look out for when negotiating

    We will look at the legal essentials for contract formation and the meaning of some common clauses found in contracts.
  • An introduction to trans-national agreements

    This session will cover an introduction to academic collaborations and contracts with international agents. We will also cover topics such as due diligence, common clauses, local advice and what to do when things go wrong.
  • Apprenticeship employer agreements

    This session will cover an introduction to these agreements and the ESFA Funding rules which underpin them. We will also cover topics such as:
  • Atypical/irregular hours workers

    The issue of atypical workers is an important one for the sector with it trying to balance modern working practices and the desire for flexible working against allegations of exploitation and the trade unions campaign against casualisation.
  • Austrian employment law training

    Although there are similarities, it is dangerous to consider the German and Austrian employment law systems to be one and the same. Austrian law is distinct in many ways, most importantly in relation to probationary periods, the termination of employment contracts and severance. There are also sufficient differences in contract law to make the use of one model employment contract, for German and Austrian employees, a potentially expensive error for employers.
  • Belgian employment law training

    An employer found guilty of discrimination by a Belgian court can face a sentence of up to one year in prison. There is no concept of redundancy in Belgium and no concept of unfair dismissal either.
