Cumbrian businesses urged to avoid legal pitfalls
Last updated at 13:22, Tuesday, 22 January 2013
West Cumbrian businesses can get the lowdown on how to manage change whilst minimising cost, at a breakfast briefing hosted by Burnetts Solicitors.
The event in Cockermouth next month is designed to help employers manage change, whilst minimising the likelihood of costly employment tribunal claims.
Presented by Tracy Stainton, a commercial solicitor from Burnetts, ‘Changing Contract Terms and Conditions’ will take place at The Trout Hotel in Cockermouth.
It will run from 8.30am to 10.00am on February 12th and includes coffee and a bacon roll.
Burnetts hope that the session will help businesses avoid common legal pitfalls. This includes making changes to pay, holidays and shift patterns.
Ms Stainton continued: “Regularly reviewing employees’ terms and conditions to ensure they are right for the business is something every employer should do.”
“I recognise that most West Cumbria businesses do not have specialist HR departments so I usually work with the business owner, providing clear practical support to guide them step by step through the change process.
“In this briefing, I will focus on the steps a business owner needs to take to facilitate change while staying within the law.”
Changing Contract Terms and Conditions costs £15 + VAT per delegate.
