Employment law is a complex minefield at the best of times and never more so now we're in such a challenging economic environment. So, Clough & Willis - one of the North West's leading mid-sized legal firms - has again organised a series of free employment law events that aim to educate and inform local businesses on new legislation and issues.
The events will be led by Amy Ross-Sercombe employment solicitor at Clough & Willis. Amy has been an employment solicitor since 2009 and has conducted numerous hearings appearing in many Employment Tribunals across England, Scotland and Wales. She has acted on behalf of claimants and businesses from the very small to the large national organisations.
As well as conducting employment litigation, he has offered employment law advice for many firms on all aspects of employment law and human resource management from drafting policies and procedures to complex transfer of undertakings matters.
This new series of events is designed to support and complement Employer's Advantage - Clough & Willis's full HR service that has been developed specifically to guide and support business owners through the management of their people, allowing them to remain focused on growing and developing their organisations.
Discussing the events, Amy said; 'We know Employers are taking tough decisions in difficult circumstances, often in tight time scales. That's just the time when it's easy to forget about employment law - but a wrong decision could cost enough to kill a struggling business. We've planned a series of sessions which will be very informative - and delegates will be able to implement what they've learned in their own businesses straight away.'
Redundancy the Pool and Criteria
With the economy apparently in decline redundancies unfortunately remain a possibility in many firms. Redundancies may also be occurring in firms performing well as they look to reorganised and streamline to reinvest. There has been recent case law giving important guidance on how an employer should identify the pool of employees from which redundancies will be made and on what constitutes reasonable/fair selection criteria.
Amy will take delegates through the redundancy process and will pay particular attention to what employers/HR professionals should consider when identifying the pool. She will also look at what the Employment Tribunal expects from the selection criteria used by employers. During the session Amy will review the thorny issue of bumping in light of recent case law.
