HR Training

Empower your managers with the legal knowledge to prevent and manage workplace disputes

As in any walk of life, the road to a workplace dispute is usually littered with missed opportunities to de-escalate it, or even avoid it.

The philosophy of our HR training courses is to empower your managers with the legal knowledge to prevent problems from escalating and developing into an employment tribunal claim.

Many emerging legal problems can be skillfully managed to a satisfactory conclusion through the comprehensive day-to-day service our specialist employment solicitors provide to your business.

However, well-briefed HR advisers and managers who are aware of the legal pitfalls can help prevent problems even earlier by avoiding decisions which are difficult to row back from.

We provide training on a range of HR issues concerning any tricky workplace dispute between employees as well as more formal disciplinary matters or grievances.   We can also guide you on your obligations in relation to matters such as equality and diversity, bullying and harassment and whistleblowing.

Our training sessions provide the legal background and best practices for handling a difficult workplace matter to avoid allegations of unfair treatment and discrimination.

You can sample the quality of our training for free by subscribing to one of our occasional short learning webinars . If you would like to find out more about our HR training course content, please talk to a member of the employment team in St Albans, Harpenden or Luton.
