New Legislation on Employment Law that came into effect on the 1 April 2024, Chris Moses LLM Chartered FCIPD

Tue, 16 Apr 2024 10:00

Time: 10.00am to 11.00am

This is a free session and we would encourage all member councils to attend this training session as all councils are employers.

We will be providing updates on the following:

  • The right to request changes to hours as well as to work from home, from day one of employment. Employers will have to comply with new statutory requirements to respond to such requests, or risk possible claims at the Employment Tribunal for Constructive Dismissal (without two years service) and discrimination
  • Rights for carers to have additional unpaid leave
  • Changes to how holiday pay is calculated and paid

To enable councils to respond to these new entitlements and to update their terms and conditions of employment, we are holding a one hour session to provide members with information they need to know.

To achieve high performing teams, healthy conflict is necessary. Sometimes teams suffer due to an inability to speak out when needed and conflict is brushed under the carpet. Other times conflict leads to relationships breaking down. This on-line session will share techniques to help you identify ways to work with conflict in a way that leads to healthy relationships with your council teams.

During the session we will cover the following:

  • Consider relevant YLCA policies and guidelines that can support you
  • Explain why healthy conflict is key to successful teams
  • Identify your own productive and destructive tendencies in conflict
  • Consider how your preferences might impact on the rest of your team
  • Explore ideas to improve how you respond in conflict
