Event Details

Wednesday, 11 September, 2013 -
14:00 to 17:00

Don't miss our next HR Forum for your opportunity to ask the legal experts questions that affect you and your business with particular reference to Termination of Employment, details below;


This HR Forum Steeles Law will cover a number of issues arising prior to and following the termination of an individual’s employment, with the aim of achieving a ‘clean break’. 


Learn how to achieve a mutually agreed termination, including introducing the option of entering into a compromise agreement (due to be renamed ‘settlement agreements’) and the new rules relating to pre-termination negotiations. 


Meet the Steeles Law team and find out the best way to tackle the difficult issue of securing confidential information and post-termination restrictions, including the enforcement procedure for restrictive covenants and the risks associated with the provision of references for former employees.
