Advising on claims and interests of applicants
Advising on applicant claims requires a broad understanding of the tactical options available to a legal advisor. Employment law issues are a central concern of all management teams and their HR advisers. Employment strategies feed into the culture of the organisation and therefore negotiation and resolution may have other benefits beyond those of the immediate needs of the applicant. We will explore these key issues and provide you with important tips and insights to assist in the advice you give to clients and stakeholders.
Leading experts will address the importance of exploring contractual and legislative alternatives, including tactical strategies and evidential issues. Steps in devising advice and strategy in negotiations and claims brought by applicants will assist you to develop a nuanced and sophisticated engagement framework.
