Getting it Right with Trial Periods and Employment Agreements
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us for this 'Fully Charged' session on a 'need-to-know' business topic.
One size does not fit all when it comes to employing staff, and in this session we'll talk about the ways you can engage workers and what documentation to use. We'll cover "need to know" employment agreement basics, including how to successfully use a trial period clause so that you can safely rely on this "get out of jail free card", and go over the key employment laws which all employment agreements must comply with. There will be time for questions so that you can be confident you'll leave knowing what you need to about taking on an employee.
