Oswestry seminar is a great success

Experts from a Shropshire legal firm have hailed their first ever Oswestry event as a great success.

The team from Martin-Kaye Solicitors, in Telford, regularly runs employment law seminars all over the Midlands and beyond.

And as a direct response to interest from companies in the Oswestry area, they took their Top 10 Employment Blunders event to the town.

Held at The Lion Quays, the event was open to employers from all kinds of businesses, and delegates said they were impressed with the presentations and the information they heard.

Martin-Kaye’s Employment Law specialist, John Mehtam, hosted the event and shared advice on how to tackle some of the most common workplace and HR issues, as well as how to avoid them.

“We were very pleased with the positive response we received from our delegates – and despite the event taking place on the day of the much-anticipated England v Wales match in the European Football Championships, there was a great turnout,” said John.

“As with our other seminars, we took the view that a short sharp lunchtime event would be the most popular format for busy employers, and we gave presentations that are designed to get right to the point to help employers learn from the mistakes others have made.”

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

“This was the first time we’ve held an employment law seminar in the Oswestry area and we’d like to thank the local businesses who showed such an interest in the advice we had to offer.”

Martin-Kaye Solicitors has also previously held employment law seminars in Telford, Shrewsbury, West Bromwich and Wales.
