Employment Law Update for Schools

Webinar | Education

About This Webinar

Tuesday 14 June, 09:30 - 10:15

When the pandemic struck, the world changed and schools had to quickly react. Since then, home working, remote learning, vaccinations and COVID-19 related absences have continued to throw a wrench in the return to normality for many educational establishments.

In our latest schools-focused webinar, we will highlight important and current employment law topics that leaders, bursars and HR managers of independent schools and academies need to be aware of and can expect going forward.

  • Key employment tribunal cases

  • Flexible and hybrid working arrangements

  • An overview of recent government consultations

  • Horizon gazing at employment law changes coming down the track

If you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk

About This Webinar

Thursday 05 May 2022, 08:30 - 10:00

We will be hosting our next HR forum on 5 May 2022, the forum will be a roundtable breakfast session which will be held virtually. The idea being, we want the participation from all the delegates to share experiences in your day-to-day business leadership and HR role.

Managing long-term sickness is often a tricky process for employers, and there are a number of pitfalls which need to be avoided. This round table discussion will focus on the need to address long-term sickness without delay, and in what circumstances capability dismissals are appropriate. Tied to this, we recognise that settlement agreements can be a useful tool for employers where disciplinary and capability processes turn sour, and employers wish to mitigate the impact of claims against them. We will also look at how to properly navigate the discussions relating to settlements being offered (i.e. protected and without prejudice conversations), the pitfalls to avoid and best-practice for getting settlement agreements over the line.

Who Should Attend

This event will be aimed at HR directors and leaders.

While this event is by invite only, if you are interested in attending please contact the events team.

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

If you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk

Who Should Attend

Farmers and land owners, land estate owners and farming agents

Our Speaker

The legal requirements of the agricultural sector can be complex and you need a team who are real experts in agriculture law – lawyers that understand and have experience of the issues affecting you and your business.

Employment mock tribunal: Jab or no jab?

Webinar | Employment

About This Webinar

Thursday 3 March, 10:00 - 13:00 BST

In partnership with East Midlands Chamber, join us for a three hour virtual employment mock tribunal as we lead you through a role play scenario leaving you to weigh up the evidence and see if your decision on the outcome agrees with the judge.

The scenario will be based on a fictional COVID-19 related employment tribunal claim concerning unfair dismissal, and health and safety.  It will be fully interactive, informative and myth-busting and will give you the opportunity, within a safe environment, to see how an employment tribunal works and how decisions are reached.

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.

Misconduct outside the workplace and business disrepute

Webinar | Employment

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 Robin Gronbech - 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.

Who Should Attend

HR directors and professionals, business owners and senior managers with responsibility for people management.

Menopause in the Workplace – why it should be firmly on your HR agenda for 2022

Webinar | Employment

About This Webinar

Wednesday 09 March, 09:30 - 10:15

Research commissioned by Health & Her indicated that the UK could be losing fourteen million workdays a year as a result of the menopause. Menopause, while being a natural stage of life experienced by most women, remains a taboo subject in many workplaces.

There has been increasing scrutiny of workplace practices around Menopause and recent data has shown the number of Employment Tribunal decisions citing menopause as a relevant factor has tripled over the last three years. On 23 July 2021, the House of Commons Women and Equalities Committee opened an inquiry into the impact of the menopause in the workplace.

The evidence highlights that it is time for employers to open their menopause dialogue with their employees and consider any steps they could take to make their workforce more inclusive. In this webinar, we looked at:

  • The impact of the menopause on those working who experience it

  • The existing discrimination legislation and workplace practices to see what employers could and should be doing to lessen the impact on employees

  • The potential adverse consequences of failing to do so and how getting it right can aid retention (almost 900,000 women left their jobs over an unidentified period of time because of menopause symptoms)

Our Speakers

Fixed Fee Service - Bespoke Menopause Policy

We’re offering a fixed fee menopause policy drafting service. For a fixed price of £950 plus VAT*, our team of experts will prepare a bespoke menopause policy for your business. This includes:

  • A consultation to determine the best approach for your organisation and employees
  • Advice from a dedicated team of experts who will work with you to create a policy unique to your organisation and its ethos

About This Webinar

Thursday 27 January 2022, 08:30 - 10:00

Millions of people across the UK have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, but many remain unwilling to be jabbed. As part of our newly-formed HRD Forum, we will focus on managing the anti-vaccination stance in the workplace, and dealing with COVID-related absences and refusals to attend work.

Our invitation-only forum group – which is held quarterly over breakfast – is built up of clients and connections who come together to share their experiences in their day-to-day business leadership and HR roles. The participative sessions were set up as we value our clients’ contributions and insights into their industry.

In our first discussion, we will also address the legality of mandatory vaccination policies in the context of different workplace settings, as well as look at how to effectively manage refusals to enter the workplace on COVID grounds and how best to avoid these issues cropping up.

Who Should Attend

This event will be aimed at HR directors and leaders.

Race and equality in the workplace

Webinar | Employment

About This Webinar

Thursday 2 December, 9:30 - 10:15

It’s been over 50 years since we have seen race discrimination legislation come into effect in Britain and yet too many individuals from black and minority ethnic (BME) groups still face discrimination and disadvantage compared with their white British peers. Employers who take action to support equal progression and participation, across ethnicities, will grow their talent pool and boost business performance by addressing skill shortages in the process.

In this topical talk, Esther and Oscar will walk you through:

  • The protections provided by the Equality Act 2010

  • Provide you with some salutary tales from recent case law

  • Discuss the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement on the workplace

If you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk

Who Should Attend

HR Directors, HR Business Partners, senior managers and for anyone who is responsible for people management and payrolls in their organisation.

Life after Furlough

Webinar | Employment

About This Webinar

Thursday 16 September 2020, 9:30 - 10:15 BST

The extended Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (the furlough scheme) comes to an end on 30 September 2021. Throughout the pandemic, the scheme has been a lifeline for many businesses and as we get closer to its discontinuation, many employers have indicated that their businesses are yet to return to pre-pandemic levels of profitability. If trading conditions have not improved, this possibly spells redundancies and insolvencies. It is vital for businesses to prepare now for life after furlough.

Our legal experts Jon Heuvel and Nicola Holton will look at the following:

  • Restructuring staffing requirements

  • Alternative options to redundancy; changes to terms of employment, redeployment, sabbaticals and secondments

  • Redundancy

  • Practical steps you can take when insolvency is a possibility

  • Director's duties

  • Formal insolvency procedures

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.

Who Should Attend

HR and finance directors and professionals, business owners and senior managers with responsibility for people management and payrolls.

Cost

There is no cost for attending this event.

Tailored solutions for every eventuality

Our experienced employment solicitors are perfectly placed to help you navigate a wide range of employment law issues. We provide solutions that are tailored to the requirements of your organisation.

The importance of employee well-being in the workplace and practical issues for employers to consider

Webinar | Employment

About This Webinar

Tuesday 21 September, 9:30 - 10:30 BST

Research shows that poor employee well-being can affect physical, mental and social well-being, which can result in poorer job performance, short-term decision-making, a reduced ability to concentrate, absenteeism and lower productivity.

In this joint webinar with Brewin Dolphin, we will look at factors to consider in order to promote good health and wellbeing in the workplace which can boost employee engagement and organisational performance.

We will cover:

  • Stress at work – practical considerations for employers

  • Managing sickness absence in the workplace (or remotely)

  • Reasonable adjustments needed – disability discrimination?

  • Supporting employees’ families in cases of bereavement

  • Financial wellbeing and the consequences of not having a financial wellbeing programme

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.

Who Should Attend

HR and finance directors and professionals, business owners and senior managers with responsibility for people management and payrolls.

What happens after furlough? Collective redundancy consultations

As the furlough scheme finally winds down after nearly 18 months – and on the assumption that there won’t be any last minute extensions this time around – employers with staff still furloughed will need to be thinking about what happens next.

Whilst there is optimism for the future, where a business is not expected to bounce back, that might mean redundancies. In this webinar, Tom and Esther consider an employer’s obligations when carrying out a redundancy exercise. In particular, they discussed:

 

What collective consultation obligation arises when carrying out redundancies
How to comply with those obligations and who to consult with
How individual consultation fits in with collective obligations

SHMA Talks

Leading five generations in business

As the life expectancy and retirement age increases, so does the span of ages in the workplace.

With greater technology and fast-paced lives, it’s thought that priorities, mindset and cultural differences between generations are shifting quicker than ever. So, with workplaces likely to employ boomers through to Gen Z, how do you cater for the needs of different generations? Is it a reality that millennials need constant praise and feedback and that boomers will be resistant to change, or is this just a stereotype?

In this episode of SHMA Talks, our CEO Sarah Walker-Smith is in conversation with Henrietta Brealey – CEO of the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Ninder Johal - CEO of Nachural Group, business leaders who manage, motivate and support teams of all ages, both older and younger than themselves. How do they do it and what is the best practice for managing a workforce of up to five generations?

Post-pandemic working arrangements

It has been over a year now since the World Health Organization declared Covid-19 a pandemic. With the pandemic accelerating the shift from in-office working to remote working in the short term, what will working arrangements look like in a post-pandemic future? This webinar looks at the following considerations for employers:

How will employers need to make the workplace safe to facilitate more staff coming back into work?
Will contractual changes need to be made to employment contracts to facilitate a return to the workplace
How can employers facilitate flexible working arrangements?
How can employers go about insisting employees come into the workplace on specific days whilst taking into account their personal circumstances?
Will changes need to be made to employment contracts to facilitate a blended workplace?

Employment Tribunals: Giving evidence remotely

As Covid restrictions are being lifted, the Lord Chief Justice has announced that in the civil and criminal courts, there will be a return to ‘in-person’ hearings as soon as possible.

In this brief and highly practical webinar, we explore the following:

How to prepare for an electronic hearing – bundle preparation etc
What to expect during the hearing
The dos and don’ts of virtual hearings – common issues and how to avoid them

Fire and Re-hire - the controversy and the law

A number of high profile companies, including British Airways and Centrica, have recently attempted to push through changes to employees’ contracts through so-called “fire and re-hire” exercises, technically known as dismissal and reengagement. The trade unions involved have strongly resisted this approach, successfully so in the case of British Airways, with UNITE claiming a significant victory.

As you might expect, Keir Starmer has given his backing to the unions in these cases. More surprisingly, however, he has gone further than this and publically declared a commitment to introduce legislation abolishing the practice of fire and re-hire altogether. Given that this practice has been in place for many years and is widely used by employers, this would represent a very significant change to the law.

So why is fire and re-hire controversial, and what do employers need to consider if planning to go down this route? This and other related issues are discussed in our webinar.
