Employment Law & Recruitment Compliance Training


Employment Law training specifically for in-house recruiters, HR professionals and managers wanting to understand more about employment law and their regulatory obligations.

Delivered by our Senior Employment Lawyer, our workshops are designed to really develop your knowledge of employment law to ensure compliance across every area of HR and Recruitment. Our workshops are fully engaging and interactive to make the learning stick, delivered on-site directly to you and your team. What's more, we tailor the content of the workshops to your requirements and knowledge level so all learning is completely relevant to your business.

Select a number of modules on a 'pick n mix' basis so we can create the perfect Employment Law workshop for you, delivered as a half day or full day workshop at your premises: 

Employment Law for Recruiters - 2 hours

  • The Equality Act 2010 prohibits discrimination during the recruitment process. Learn how to avoid discrimination when preparing job descriptions, interviewing, testing and selecting your successful job applicant.  We’ll also cover positive discrimination and how you can legally take steps to increase workforce diversity.

Pre-employment Checks - 3 hours

  • This module covers in detail how to correctly complete Right to Work checks, ensuring your company reduces any risk of non-compliance. Delegates will learn who can and cannot work in the UK; how to carry out a Right to Work check and appropriate documentation required; how to deal with different categories of workers; and how to identify fraudulent identity documents.

Health and Disability - 2 hours

  • Everyone is familiar with the requirement to make reasonable adjustments for disabled job applicants and employees. But does your team know what is ‘reasonable’, an ‘adjustment’ and the meaning of ‘disabled’? An in-depth look at when and how to make adjustments. We’ll also be looking what questions you can ask about health during the recruitment process.

Recruitment Options - 1 hour

  • Do you know what sort of contracts you should be using, and when? There are lots of options from fixed-term, consultancy to zero hours employment relationships. Make sure your team are always advising the business on the most suitable contract. Find out the pros and cons of each type of contract.

Contracts 101 - 45 minutes

  • Ever wondered what the legal mumbo jumbo in an employment contract means? We’ll give you the 101 on employment contracts, and what can/can’t be negotiated. Including restrictive covenants and probationary periods.

Offers & Pay - 45 minutes

  • Ever made an offer and needed to retract it? Understand your rights to change an offer or terminate a contract. How much flexibility is there to negotiate different rates of pay? Find out the rules on pay.

Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults - 45 minutes

  • Does your business have contact with children and vulnerable adults? Find out what the law says about working in this environment and your obligations to carry out DBS checks on relevant staff pre-employment.

Agency Workers - 1 hour

  • Is your team responsible for managing the relationship with recruitment agencies and agency workers? Find out what the Agency Workers Regulations 2010 require your business to have in place.

GDPR - 2 hours +

  • The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU regulation that will come into force on 25 May 2018. It will strengthen the current rules under the Data Protection Act (1998) by introducing new obligations for organisations and rights for individuals. These changes will impact how HR and recruiters process candidate data. It is therefore essential that recruiters familiarise themselves with these changes and begin preparing.  

Do you have a specific requirement? We can also help to reinforce any internal policy or procedure.
