Recruitment of Staff, Writing a Contract of Employment, Writing and Employee Handbook


Recruitment of Staff, Writing a Contract of Employment & Writing and Employee Handbook 

With more than 24 different Acts dealing with employment law, there are a wide range of issues which employers simply have to be aware of when recruiting staff. This course has been specifically designed to deal with all aspects of recruiting staff, preparing a written contract of employment, or a written statement of employment (as required by law) and compiling a staff handbook to ensure that employers comply with their legal requirements and minimise their exposure to possible litigation. Many employees don’t have a written contract of employment, or a written statement of terms of employment, and even where a staff handbook exists; it may be seriously out of date, or simply inadequate. 


This course will give you guidance on how to prepare these important documents and what they should contain. The course will also explain why every employer should have a robust employee handbook and will guide you in the preparation of a employee handbook. 


Most awards against employers arise, not through any deliberate wrongdoing on the part of the employer, but as a result of the failure of the employer to comply with legal requirements, or to follow prescribed procedures. If your company doesn't currently have a employee handbook, or if you simply need to update your employee handbook, this course will prove an invaluable aid and may save you from costly and possibly damaging litigation.


The following topics will be covered on the day:


Delegates will be provided with excellent course material which can be used as an invaluable reference document and all delegates are provided with free access to our 30 day Employment Law telephone helpline service following their attendance.
