NI- Masterclass in Handling Workplace Grievances

Tuesday, 26 September, 9:30 AM

Legal-Island | Northern Ireland Employment Law Hub

The workplace can and has become more “aggrieved”. Organisational change, individual personality types, team dynamics, work demands, “bullying bosses”, unrealistic expectations, stress – to name but a few – can lead to the “aggrieved” employee(s). How can grievances and complaints be responded to quickly, efficiently and satisfactorily?

Why is this event important for YOU?
This is a highly interactive event that includes facilitator-led input, practical exercises, simulated exercises, group discussions and case studies. You will be equipped in your knowledge, skills and attitude to manage and resolve grievances more confidently and effectively.

You will learn much about human behaviour, why we think/feel/do/perceive as we do. You will also experience one of the most enjoyable learning events of your professional career.

NI- Discipline and Underperformance at Work

Thursday, 28 September, 9:30 AM

Legal-Island | Northern Ireland Employment Law Hub

Dealing with discipline and underperformance can be challenging and confronting for employees and employers alike, but it does need to be addressed.

In the world of work, managing underperforming employees and handling conduct related matters is part of the job! This workshop will in particular look at:

  • Managing the underperformer.
  • Handling different types of misconduct issues that require various disciplinary outcomes up to and including dismissal.
  • Addressing the complexity of handling grievances raised during a disciplinary process.

NI is different from the rest of the UK in this area. We have repealed the Statutory Grievance Procedures but have retained the Statutory Disciplinary and Dismissal Procedures. Our revised LRA Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures carries penalties of up to 50% for breaches of its standards.

This event will put underperformance, discipline/dismissal into a legal and contractual context, giving attendees a fuller understanding of the revised best practice requirements of the Code.

100% of recent delegates said they would recommend this event to colleagues and peers!
