#Knowvember webinar series

The employment team launch their #Knowvember webinar series.

Throughout November our employment team will be running three live free webinars aimed at HR professionals (both in-house or those who are part of a HR consultancy), in-house counsel, company directors and anybody with HR responsibilities within their organisation.

The first two part webinar will be presented by partner and head of employment, Ian Machray. If you are you considering making redundancies due to the impact of COVID-19 this two part webinar provides practical advice and top tips on running a redundancy consultation from start to finish. This first session will focus on how to carry out individual consultation with employees, common challenges and how to deal with the unique problems caused by the current pandemic.

The second session will focus on larger scale (20 plus) redundancies and focus on collective consultation with employees, including common challenges with appointing and working with employee representatives as well as how to deal with the unique problems caused by the current pandemic.

Finally, the last webinar of our #Knowvember series, Louise Smyth a Senior Associate in our employment team will provide practical advice and tips on how to retain staff, even when faced with limited finances and the disconnection that can follow from remote working.
