Consumer Law course from The Furniture Ombudsman
The Furniture Ombudsman is pleased to introduce a course in Employment Law, the first of which will be held on 14th July.
Today, employees are becoming increasingly aware of their employment rights, and the number of cases filed before Employment Tribunals has escalated. Noticing this change in behaviour, The Furniture Ombudsman, which specialises in providing law advice and guidance to the furniture industry, has introduced an Employment Law course to their training schedule.
As employment law continues to evolve, it is more important than ever that employers know of changes when they occur. The course aims to provide managers and supervisors in the furniture industry with the confidence to effectively address any employment law issues on behalf of their business as efficiently as possible.
Barrister and practicing employment lawyer, Ron Wells will lead the one day course. He says: "I am delighted that TFO has taken the lead in promoting a course of this nature. Employment law and - employee relations can be a complex topic, but if handled correctly by managers, many of the issues can be resolved in the interests of both parties.
!You cannot plan when you may have to deal with an employment law issue, so ensuring you are up to date with the processes is essential."
The Employment Law Course will be held at The Furniture Ombudsman head office on 14th July and 12th October, from 09.45 - 15.00. Lunch will be provided. The course is priced at £250 + VAT for Members and £350 + VAT for Non-members.
