Manage legal HR risks, workplace mental health scenarios, performance issues, return-to-work processes and claims
Whether it is dealing with a performance related matter or conducting an investigation in the workplace, it is usually a sign that something has gone seriously wrong and an appropriate outcome is expected. This creates the pressure to act quickly and effectively both within and outside of the organisation. But what if these issues are further complicated with an employee with a mental health issue? Such issues are becoming increasingly more common and fraught with legal and organisational risks. Scrutiny by the workplace, courts, tribunals and the media of the actual organisational response has never been as immediate, rigorous and complex. Organisationally, industrially and operationally, the stakes are high.
Responding to performance related issues or conducting an investigation underpinned by dealing respectfully, professionally and legally with an employee with a mental health issue requires a special skill set. Too often, those required to manage such processes and outcomes are ill-equipped to do so having had no practical experience of both the emotional and technical difficulty of handling such processes.
This training provides participants with the ability to practically apply a hypothetical scenario (based on current case law) from start to finish, including role-play under the guidance of an experienced senior lawyer to test implementation throughout the training.
The focus will be upon creating a 'real-life experience' for participants so that they can apply the practical realities of this challenging set of circumstances to their own workplace should the need arise in the future.
