Introducing our new HOW TO series!
McDermott Will & Emery's Employment Group is pleased to announce the launch of our new HOW TO series of complimentary breakfast seminars.
The HOW TO series will take a practical look at what you have been telling us are the key employment issues affecting you, highlighting the latest legal developments in each area – and drawing on our wealth of experience to give you pragmatic, user-friendly guidance on HOW TO deal with these matters confidently and effectively.
The first issue we will look at is HOW TO Effectively Manage Employee Performance, and we would be delighted if you joined us.
Performance management can be challenging for even the most experienced HR professional, and we will take a matter-of-fact practical look at some of the issues that commonly arise, including:
- Process - The sort of performance management process an Employment Tribunal would expect to see – and how you can balance this with business requirements to swiftly resolve a situation.
- The calculated shortcut - A look at the potential liabilities where a full process is not conducted, and the speed versus potential liability conundrum.
- Practicalities - How employers can use a mix of proactive process management and, in appropriate situations, the new concept of “protected conversations” and the recent cap on unfair dismissal compensation awards, to best effect.
This seminar will be both a useful refresher and a cutting-edge look at HOW TO use the latest legal developments in this area to your advantage that even the most experienced HR professional will find useful.
As always, we are eager to hear your views, so members of the Employment Group will be on hand before and after the seminar to discuss any particular issues affecting your business. We hope to see you there.
