A workshop on 15 March will guide employers on how to hold protected conversations with a view to agreeing exit terms with employees.

The free event, hosted by hlw Keeble Hawson, takes place at the firm’s Commercial House office on Commercial Street, Sheffield from 8.30am-11am. 

It will focus on when protected conversations with staff are most useful and cover the key requirements. A light hearted protected conversation role play will also show how things might go wrong.

The importance of the ACAS code of conduct and the ‘Without Prejudice rule’ will be explained as well as the effect of legally binding settlement agreements.

Barry Warne, partner and head of employment law at hlw Keeble Hawson who will host the workshop with his team, said: “Protected conversations and settlement agreements are valuable HR tools which, if used carefully, can solve problems with difficult employees. This workshop will give attendees valuable insights into how that can be done.”
