Local firms to benefit as solicitors hold free employment law briefing and HR workshop

Local firms from across south Essex are set to benefit next month from a free employment law briefing and HR communications skills workshop delivered by one of the area’s top law firms.

Lara Murray, a solicitor specialising in employment law at Palmers Solicitors, will bring together practical legal and HR advice at the briefing in Basildon on Tuesday 16 May 2017 to help employers take an emotionally intelligent approach to personnel matters.

The briefing will include an update on employment law and a practical HR workshop to help employers develop the communication skills needed to deal effectively with employment matters in the context of their own workplaces.

Palmers Solicitors, which has offices in Basildon, Thurrock and South Woodham Ferrers, regularly holds events for local businesses on matters of interest and its employment briefing has become an annual fixture for many local employers.

Lara Murray said: “I know from experience that many costly disputes arise not because of ignorance or failure to comply with the law but, rather, from a failure of people to understand people.

“Issues in the workplace need to be managed with both the law and working relationships in mind, since when working relationships suffer, so does your business.

“The briefing is always a very popular event, so to avoid disappointment I would encourage employers to sign up today to attend.”

The briefing and workshop will take place from 7.45am to 10am on Tuesday 16 May 2017 at Holiday Inn Basildon, Waterfront Walk, Festival Leisure Park, Basildon, Essex, SS14 3DG.
