This one day beginner/intermediate level employment law course is designed to cover the essential elements of the employment life cycle for HR practitioners.
Taking a practical approach, we will highlight the issues that HR professionals are typically required to advise on, and providing legal and usable guidance on how to manage these. We will draw on experiences from the group as well as "war stories" from the presenters to make the learning interactive and entertaining.
Attendees will build on their understanding of their obligations as an employer, managing holidays and leave, performance and discipline, managing workplace issues such as bullying, harassment and discrimination, organisational change processes, through to termination of employment, personal grievances & disputes.
Who should attend: Those who are new to HR (or coming back to it after some years away) or line managers with HR responsibilities.
All personal development events are subject to HRNZ Terms and Conditions.
Registrations close 08:30am Wednesday 7 September.
About the Presenter - Blair Scotland
Blair has over 20 years' experience advising both public and private sector clients on employment matters. He has worked in-house and externally and his clients appreciate his legal know-how combined with his pragmatism that only someone who has worked as an in-house employment relations specialist can provide.
About Dundas Street
Dundas Street has a team of 8 specialist employment lawyers, providing the full range of advice from performance management and disciplinary matters to complex contract and industrial disputes. Their point of difference is that they have worked at the coal face and understand the practical issues facing employers and apply that to provide solution focused advice. They have a strong client base both in Wellington and Nationally, acting primarily for Corporate and Government employers.
Great to have actual employment lawyers (subject matter experts) educating us about employment law. Kellie, People and Culture Advisor
It gives you a great foundation of knowledge to build on and it's a great way to refresh your memory. I came away motivated and excited to attend the advanced employment law course. HR Advisor, Revera.
Friendly and casual but very knowledgeable conversational style. Catered for different learning styles (some people like to talk, some don't!). Excellent overall. The excellent workbook to take away to refer to afterwards - beautifully set out and easy to find stuff. HR Advisor, Self Employed.
I found all topics covered in the course most valuable. It was exactly what I was after to assist with my knowledge on Employment Law. Blair related to his audience extremely well. He managed to keep all of us engaged. Director, Aconsult Ltd
