Employers whose management and HR teams understand the basic framework of UK employment law are much less likely to find themselves in the employment tribunal. Equipping managers with a solid understanding of these employment law skills makes good business sense.

Light on jargon, heavy on practical solutions, our employment law training provides businesses with the skills to manage UK employment law issues. Our team is experienced in helping organisations raise operational awareness of the risks posed by employment legislation and help implement best practice through practical, interactive training.

Our employment lawyers offer training on a range of UK employment law issues. We work closely with HR teams, in-house lawyers, directors and line managers and also deliver training to employee representatives and individual groups of employees to suit your business needs. 

Our bespoke training packages are ideal to upskill teams. For individuals who are looking to expand their employment law knowledge, we recommend our on-demand webinars, video content and employment law updates.
