About the event

Managing employee performance is an integral part of managing a business. If mishandled or neglected completely, it can increase the risk of exposure to claims of bullying or absent employees on “stress” leave. Employees who are absent through injury or illness need to be appropriately managed and there can be a fine line between reasonable management action and action that may amount to a breach of general protections.
Join your host Zenith HR, and Andrew Bland, as he addresses commonly-asked questions and shares practical strategies around these issues, designed to enhance your business processes and help mitigate legal risks.

The presentation includes a discussion of:

  • Performance management and process
  • Bullying and stress claims
  • Workers compensation
  • Temporary absence
  • Recent real cases and practical tips
