Employers flock to law seminar

Our latest advice seminar was so popular it was booked up within hours of being announced.

We organised the presentation at our offices in Euston Way, in Telford, for employers struggling to cope with staff taking time off sick. And employment law specialist, John Mehtam, who leads our Alpha business team, said delegates who attended were very impressed with the advice they received.

"We had an excellent response to the presentation and feedback forms completed by employers who attended rated the seminar as probably the best we've ever done."

The session looked at the legal rules and implications involved in the correct management of both short term and long term sickness absence.

Our Alpha team were also joined on the day by leading barrister, David Maxwell, from St Philips Chambers in Birmingham, who is a specialist employment lawyer, a part-time employment judge, and who is recommended by the Legal 500.

This was the latest in a series of seminars run by our Alpha team who specialise in effective and robust advice for businesses in all aspects of human resources and employment law.
