Misconduct outside the workplace and business disrepute

About This Webinar

Thursday 08 September, 09:30 - 10:15
How can employers reduce the risk of damage to their reputation?

If an employee's conduct outside of the workplace potentially damages a company's reputation, then the employee can be said to be bringing the company into disrepute. Which in turn may give the employer legal cause to take disciplinary action.

In this webinar, Mike Hibbs – Partner and Danielle Humphries - Solicitor in our Employment team will discuss the key employment law considerations and potential pitfalls. We will cover:

  • Legal framework – unfair dismissal

  • When does employee’s conduct outside of work become relevant to their employer?

  • What should employers do if an employee is suspected of bringing the employer into disrepute?

  • Policies, procedures, and planning your investigation

This is a live event and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers on the day; if you wish, you may also forward your questions in advance to events@shma.co.uk.
