The difficult (but magnificent) seven

Free Webinar in collaboration with Sherrards Employment Law Solicitors.

We are delighted to invite you to join Harry Sherrard, Principal of Sherrards Employment Law Solicitors and Legal Ambassador for IoD Sussex for this free 45 minute webinar.

This practical, interactive webinar will cover seven common HR challenges and focus on how best to navigate them.  


  1. Sasha has been with us for 18 months. Her manager wants her employment to be terminated, but the reasons are thin. Are there any legal risks if I terminate her employment with no procedure? 
  2. I am conducting an appeal after a disciplinary hearing. I believe that the disciplinary was badly handled. How do I correct this?
  3. We have won a contract and employees will transfer to us under TUPE. We plan to issue new contracts to all employees who are going to transfer. Is that OK?
  4. Martin has been employed for 3 years and his manager is considering meeting with him to have a ‘protected conversation’ as she doesn’t want to go through the formal capability procedure. How should she proceed and what are the pitfalls of this approach? 
  5. We  have received two competing flexible working requests, one from a mother of small children, and one from a male who wants to take time off to improve his golf handicap. We can accommodate one but not both requests. What should we  do?
  6. We have received a data subject access request. Do we have to disclose WhatsApp messages? 
  7. We have an employee who has informed us that he is suffering from work related stress. We intend to refer him for an occupational health appointment. Should we consider doing anything further before his assessment

Michele Augousti, IoD Sussex Chair and the IoD Sussex Ambassador team look forward to you joining us, for what will be a very interesting and informative session.
