Business owners and HR directors are being urged to join a free employment law breakfast briefing in Aberdeen next week.
Leading Scottish legal firm Aberdein Considne is hosting the first of its new 'EMpower breakfast briefings' to update businesses on legal developments which affect them.
The first session, being held at the firm's Aberdeen headquarters at 5-9 Bon-Accord Crescent, will take place at 8-9.30am next Thursday (July 7th) and will look at how employers should deal with misconduct.
Sally-Anne Anderson, an Employment Law Partner at Aberdein Considine will deliver the interactive session.
She said: "Dealing with misconduct in the workplace can be sensitive and difficult.
"However, it is important to address such issues and to ensure that the correct procedure is followed.
"During our highly practical seminar, we will take you through whether to suspend and on what terms, appointing investigating officers, decision makers and appeal hearers, how to conduct a fair and reasonable investigation, framing allegations and conducting the disciplinary hearing and how to ensure a good procedure is not prejudiced by a poor appeal process."

The briefing is the first in a series of monthly sessions delivered by EMpower, a new employment law, HR and PR service which has been jointly launched by Aberdein Consdine and Citrus Mix.
EMpower has been designed to be as transparent and simple to use as possible – and operates much like a monthly gas or electricity bill.
Clients buy hourly credits – known as ‘emhours’ – to use as they wish for employment law advice, HR support or PR and marketing.
Businesses are not tied into long-term contracts and can stop using empower at short notice, offering flexibility as they evolve.
