5th November
Ellis Whittam

Woodhouse, Church Lane, Aldford, Chester CH3 6JD
08:00 - 09:30

Join us at our FREE breakfast seminars to gain a better understanding of how recent case law and legal developments will affect your school.

Ellis Whittam’s Head of Employment Law Education Team, Jane Hallas, and Enlightened HR’s Executive Director, Justin Wilson, will be hitting the road to run a series of nationwide events, designed to ensure COOs and CEOs of MATs, Headteachers and Academy Business Managers are up to date with the latest legislation and case law impacting the Education sector.

The topics discussed will expand on some of the challenges raised in our recent video series, plus we’ll be exploring the surprising outcomes of some recent Tribunal claims and what practical steps you can take to mitigate similar risks.

Jane and Justin have an abundance of first-hand experience in the Education sector, having both previously held senior leadership posts in schools. Their backgrounds, combined with their extensive time served supporting large MATs and single Academies with all elements of employment law and HR, ensure they understand the day-to-day challenges you face. This training aims to provide straightforward advice on complex and time-consuming legal and HR matters, demonstrating exactly what process schools are expected to follow.  

Places are limited, so book early to avoid missing out.

This seminar will cover:

• Managing safeguarding allegations against staff
• Investigating grievances and disciplinary issues
• Disability discrimination
• Whistleblowing and anonymity
• Suspending employees
