Employment Law Advice Session: Capability Dismissals & Effective Performance Management

25 May 2010

We’d like to invite you to an Employment Law advice session with Kervin & Barnes Solicitors on Tuesday 25th May 2010.

This free event is specifically aimed at the HR and senior recruitment contacts within our network as well as senior technologists with team management responsibilities. Unfortunately if you don’t fall into this category we can’t offer you a place at the session but if you are interested in the topic, please get in touch as we may look into running an event with a similar theme for a larger audience at a later date.

Date: Tuesday 25th May 2010

Time: 5.30pm to 7pm

Location: womenintechnology offices, 114 Middlesex Street, London, E1 7JH

The perceived complexity of the procedures involved in a “capability dismissal” invariably lead employers to look to more straight forward dismissal options such as conduct and redundancy.  Not only is this inherently risky, it removes a very effective management tool.  Performance review procedures should form an essential and integral part of general performance management.

This session will concentrate on:

  • Informal and formal processes;
  • Target setting;
  • The obligation to assist the employee;
  • Timescales;
  • Alternatives to dismissal;
  • The performance standards that are acceptable/unacceptable; and
  • Effective performance management policies.

This session will be presented by Gareth Kervin (Partner) from Kervin & Barnes. There are places for a maximum of 16 people in this session so if you are interested in attending, please contact Sarah Lilley atslilley@womenin.co.uk including the following details:

  • First Name
  • Surname
  • Company
  • Job Title
  • Email Address
