A Penrith food hall will be the venue for small businesses in Eden to benefit from employment law advice on a plate this autumn.
Penrith solicitor Natalie Ruane is hosting the Employment Law on A Plate series of workshops at Cranstons twice monthly from September to December. The sessions will focus on the employment law areas which most worry businesses.
The first session on 5th September 2012 will centre on holidays, sickness and other working time issues. Future workshops will include Discrimination Awareness, HR for Small Businesses and Conducting Grievance Hearings. The 2012 programme will be rounded off with an Employment Law Update in December.
Running from 9.30am – 11.30am, the sessions will cost just £15 plus VAT per delegate each. As well as a presentation, there will be a group discussion of a relevant and practical case study to help delegates put their learning into practice.
Natalie, who lives in Penrith, is a partner at Cumbria law firm Burnetts. She said, “A good working knowledge of employment law is an essential for anyone running a business, but busy diaries mean it’s often impossible to find time for courses especially since we usually need to travel a distance to access good training. I’m limiting numbers on each of the events so delegates have plenty of face to face time to discuss any issues which are affecting their business.”
Local businesses can also benefit from web-based briefings such as Managing Long-term Sickness Absence on 29th September and a full day session on Employment Law and Managing People which is being run jointly by Burnetts and the Cumbria Chamber of Commerce at CREA on 20th November.
Pre-booking for all events is essential and since previous sessions have quickly become full, early booking is advised. To make a booking, or for further information, email firstname.lastname@example.org, call Hannah Turner on 01228 552222 or visit our events pages.
