Davis Blank Furniss has launched a new in-house Employment Law training service that can be tailored to the size, needs and resources of a particular business.
The programme, which is headed up by Anna Bunting – partner, and Shiva Shadi – head of the firm’s Employment department, has been designed to dispel the myths and tackle head on the issues that affect businesses in today’s legislative heavy world.
The team is able to go into clients’ offices to address their concerns and educate them with practical advice in a familiar environment and at a pace that suits them. The service is aimed at most sectors operating in the North West including; hospitality, professional services, manufacturing, property, recruitment, leisure and technology.
Topics are varied but some of the most popular will include;
- Discipline and Grievance procedures:- investigations, hearings and appeals
- Dealing with flexible working requests
- Managing poor performance
- Managing sickness absence
- Handling redundancies
- Social media
- Equal opportunities
In addition, Davis Blank Furniss stages regular public Employment Law Updates at its head office in Manchester which can – again – be tailored and delivered in-house if required.
Anna Bunting commented: “The whole Davis Blank Furniss team believes that effective communication and maintaining close working relationships with our clients are essential. We offer all the services you’d expect of a law firm but we like to go above and beyond when needed. We feel this bespoke programme reflects that and we are excited to see it rolling out and making a difference.”
