Lancashire HR Employers' Forum

Wednesday 04 July 2018, Samlesbury Hotel, Preston New Rd, PR5 0UL

Business Owners/Directors/Managers and HR Practitioners across Lancashire are invited to the HR Employers' Forum.

The aim of these forums is to keep you up to date with changes and developments in Employment Law along with bringing you key speakers who can inspire you and your business.

The programme is -

  • Light breakfast and Networking (9am to 9.30am)
  • Welcome and General Introduction (9.30am)
  • Susan Raftery, ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service)
    • Providing a summary of key employment law updates
  • Emma Swan, Partner, Employment, Forbes Solicitors
    • A summary of recent cases which may impact the workforce and interesting cases awaiting conclusion.
  • Samantha House, Clinical Director - Physiofusion - Insider Knowledge for Dealing with Sickness Absence - Best Practice Toolkit
    • It can be tricky to work out what the best thing is to do when managing sickness absence cases - particularly when you aren't a clinical expert. Knowing whether you should call in an expert and which expert to call, how to get the best out of (often inappropriately used) Fit Notes, and how to get your team back into work faster are a few of the matters we'll cover by way of case studies and a "what would you do" interactive session.
  • Joanne Pickering, Director of HR & Training, Forbes Solicitors
    • Chair's Report
