Oswestry visit is a first for legal firm

Experts from a Shropshire legal firm are to hold their first ever employment law seminar in Oswestry.

The team from Martin-Kaye Solicitors, in Telford, are once again taking their Top 10 Employment Blunders event on the road after successful presentations in Shrewsbury, West Bromwich and Wales.

It will take place on Thursday, June 16, at the Lion Quays in Oswestry, from 12noon to 2pm.

Hosted by the company’s Employment Law specialist, John Mehtam, the event is open to employers from all kinds of businesses, and with such a positive response in other areas, the law firm is expecting a capacity audience.

“The aim of the event is to share with employers the best ways to tackle some of the most common workplace and HR issues and, more importantly, how to avoid them and protect your business,” said John.

“Tripping up when it comes to employment law isn’t an option, but keeping up-to-date with ever-changing legislation is practically impossible for employers who are already battling with a packed schedule.

“So our short sharp lunchtime seminars are designed to get right to the point with our team setting the record straight and helping employers to learn from the mistakes others have made. Our advice sets out the right way to tackle any employment law issues and the ways employers can avoid falling into the most common traps.”

The seminar will cover a variety of tricky areas including sickness absence, dismissals and poor employee performance.

“This will be the first time we’ve held an employment law seminar in Oswestry, but we decided to organise the event as a direct result of client interest in that area,” said John.

“The seminar is the latest in our ongoing series of similar advice presentations, and we’re looking forward to meeting businesses from the Oswestry area and beyond.”

Numbers for the presentation are strictly limited so employers will need to reserve a place by contacting June Noto on 01952 525951, or email junenoto@martinkaye.co.uk
