Company bosses get discrimination advice

Company bosses will be offered tips on how to avoid falling into a growing number of discrimination traps at a special evening seminar this week.

The Ramada Park Hall Hotel at Goldthorn Park, in Wolverhampton, is hosting the latest in a series of ‘HELP’ sessions staged by law firm Martin-Kaye Solicitors, based at Bredon House on Tettenhall Road.

This third presentation, which starts at 6pm on June 26, is titled ‘Discrimination Traps for the Unwary Employer’, and follows previous events looking at topics such as compensation, covert recording, and settlement agreements

Our senior partner Graham Davies said: “Discrimination is one of the most rapidly expanding areas of employment law at the moment. There are a staggering 74 different varieties of discrimination for companies to bear in mind, and it’s clear from the raft of employment tribunals that businesses are more vulnerable than ever.

“The presentation is designed to bring Wolverhampton businesses up to date with the legislation, and equip them with the tools needed to ensure they comply with the rules, and avoid the pitfalls.”

The seminar will be run by members of our employment law team including John Mehtam, who said: “The HELP scheme stands for HR and Employment Law in Practice.

“After expanding our business to open a new office in Wolverhampton, it was clear there was a real demand for effective and clear advice that would help employers protect their business in the longer term. Our advice is designed to help employers avoid any difficulties when it comes to dealing with their staff and how to minimise potential ongoing risks to their business.”

Places at the session are deliberately limited, to ensure that everyone who attends gets the chance to be directly involved and ask as many questions as they like. To find out more, or to reserve a place, call June Noto on 01952 272222 or email
