We have provided Seminars in some of the following areas:

  • The Employment Act 2002 (Dispute Resolution) Regulation 2004 and its impact.
  • Disability Discrimination Act 1995, what Employers had to do to become compliant and to avoid discriminatory practice for the purpose of the Act. We have advised on several occasions as to the changes within Discrimination legislation.
  • Local businesses need to keep abreast of changes as they happen. In order to assist them to do this we have given open business seminars on hot topics of the day such as The Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 which came into force on 6th April 2007. We were able to advise employers on their recruiting policies, staff management and retirement policies as they would be impacted under this legislation directly and indirectly.
  • The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2006 which consolidated the Construction (Health Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1996 and came into force on 6th April 2007. These Regulations were to change the employment status of many contractors, directly affecting therefore the employee and the employer.
  • We regularly provide helpline advice services on all employment issues as well as providing where required in-house Human Resource services dealing with practice, policies, internal procedures and management strategies. We tailor such work to suit the differing requirements of each individual business.
