Knowing your employment basics

Webinar | Agriculture

About This Webinar

Tuesday 10 May, 09:30 - 10:15

We are seeing an ever increasing rise in the number of Employment Tribunal claims being brought by aggrieved employees, and the agricultural sector is no exception.

Often an important factor contributing to an employee's decision to bring a claim is that the basics have been missed or misapplied.

In this webinar, Helen Hughes and Helen Molloy will take a look at some of the fundamentals of the employment relationship to help you check that you have the basics covered to minimise the risk of such claims including:

  • Contracts – and what has to go in them

  • Managing long and short term absence

  • How to handle disciplinaries and grievances 

  • National Minimum Wage, holidays and auto enrolment

  • Workplace disputes involving harassment including race and nationality discrimination
