Grievances, complaints and whistleblowing. Managing the impact of difficult behaviour

18 May 2022

In the first of our two-part webinar series on ‘managing the impact of difficult employee behaviour’ employment and regulatory experts Ros Foster and James Tait look at what is, and what isn’t whistleblowing.

Suitable for in-house lawyers, HR and employment professionals and people managers working within the public sector, this webinar looks at what the law says about breaches of confidence and complaints, before specifically looking at how data should be processed in relation to responding and managing cases.

Utilising very recent examples of cases in the public-eye, James and Ros  provide guidance on the approach you should take to managing such situations, and highlight the risks, and the legal and practical issues that can arise along the way.

The second part of the series, ‘the use and misuse of social media’ takes place on 9 June.
