Making employment law less dull


I need to train a large group of managers on employment law and how it relates to hiring and retaining their staff. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can ensure that they understand all the legalities but are not just subjected to a lecture? I'm looking for specific exercises etc. Thanks

  1. an idea
    Hi Alison,
    You could write some straightforward and realistic case studies which you can give to the delegates before the event, these could relate to situations in recruitment, performance management, disciplinary and grievance.

    When you have your workshop, get the delegates to form groups and assess what they think should happen OR assess whether what did happen is legal or not.

    They can then share their findings and discuss.

    You can then tell them the “true” legal position.

    You can put it from differing perspectives; eg candidate lies on CV, manager discriminates unlawfully, employee makes com[plaint to manager about treatment at the hands of a customer, person blows whistle on unethical behaviour of manager or peer.

    If your budget is enormous you could make videos but that is a whole new ball park!
    I hope this helps
