Good staff can make real and lasting differences and if staff decide to “move on” a large number of risks can arise. Indeed a departing employee can become a significant threat.

Description:

The employees of any organisation are often described as key assets and without staff, many organisations would not be able to function effectively.

Good staff can make real and lasting differences and if staff decide to “move on” a large number of risks can arise. Indeed a departing employee can become a significant threat. BTO’s employment team is regularly called upon to provide assistance to organisations where an employee decides to leave.

In what ways can the contract of employment be used to protect the organisation in this situation?

What options arise when a key employee resigns?

This session will explore the main legal and practical issues arising in these cases including:

  • Obligations on employees during employment
  • Notice obligations and breach of contract
  • What can you do if an employee provides less than the contractual notice?
  • Use of garden leave provisions
  • Post employment restrictive covenants

Being proactive is essential in this area and we will also explore some of the practical issues arising to help you plan ahead.

This session is not to be missed if you have staff and want to know what you can do now to reduce risk.
