Thank you to everyone who attended our Christmas Breakfast Seminar on Friday, 6 December 2019. We trust everyone enjoyed the breakfast and opportunity to mingle and network with other clients.
Angharad Owens-Strauss’ presentation offered a simplified refresher on the termination process. Angharad covered the key issues of: redundancy, underperformance and what constitutes serious misconduct. Her presentation emphasised the importance of affording employees procedural fairness at all stages of the termination process and highlighted timely case law to reinforce this point.
Jane Murray’s presentation was on managing and mitigating the post-employment risks that can follow the termination of an employee. This served as a reminder to employers of their obligations in relation to: workplace surveillance, garden leave, and explored the considerations applied by the courts when considering post-employment restraints.
If you have any questions arising out of the Breakfast Seminar, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
