Who is it for?

This course is designed for managers and supervisors responsible for a team and their output to their business or organisation. A key responsibility of line managers is to continuously manage employee performance. Failure to address issues of unsatisfactory performance can lead to negative outcomes.

What does it cover?

Managers may not realise it, but they make employment law decisions every day.

They are expected to make people management decisions in a legally compliant way or open themselves and their employer to a risk of a claim. As ignorance of the law is no defence, this Essential HR training course gives managers an overview of the key employment law principles which they need to be aware of when dealing with staff.

The course will enable candidates to recognise under performance (conduct or capability) and respond with early interventions and then how to manage serious and on-going performance issues requiring formal corrective action, up to and including dismissal.

What will delegates be able to do differently?

  • Be able to deal with absence, performance and misconduct issues with more confidence
  • Whilst understanding the principles of current employment legislation, candidates will be able to endeavour in ensuring people perform to their full potential
  • Know when they can dismiss for poor performance and limit the risks
