Hiring, Firing or Retiring? Employment Law Event – Wednesday 22nd March – 8am-10am
If you employ staff or are looking to do so in the future, this event will be of value to you.
Whether you believe people are your business’s most important asset or not, most managers agree that managing employees can take an inordinate amount of a manager’s time and if not managed properly can bring added cost and potential disruption to the business. Failure to comply with employment legislation can be devastating for a business. Compensation awards for unfair dismissal claims could be as high as £74,000 and awards for discrimination are unlimited.
How can you make sure that you recruit correctly and manage employee performance effectively for the benefit of your business, within current employment legislation? With many employees now wishing to work beyond retirement age are you aware of your legal obligations and do you have a succession plan in place to protect your business against the potential loss of key skills and experience when an employee retires?
Finally, even if you don’t wish to exit your business for a number of years it’s wise to start your planning well in advance. We will discuss options around structuring your business to ensure that when you are ready to exit you can do so in the most effective way.
Using a case study example of an employee lifecycle, local Employment Law specialists, Poole Alcock and Business Advisors and Accountants Howard Worth will guide you through the essential considerations of employing new staff, how to minimise the need to dismiss staff and how to prepare for the loss of essential skills when key staff retire.
It will be on Wednesday 22nd March, 8.00am to 10.30am at Rookery Hall, Main Road, Worleston, Nantwich, Cheshire, CW5 6DQ
