What is the procedure if an employee calls in sick but is later spotted in the park playing with his children? Employers may think they have grounds to serve a warning, but would they be within their rights to do so? Harry Sherrard, a successful employment law solicitor, identified the need for HR professionals and line managers to understand the legal rules and procedures when dealing with workplace disputes and dilemmas. He and his colleagues created training workshops that offered more than the usual dry handling of the subject by encouraging delegates to share their experiences of workplace disputes or 'headaches', and participate in lively discussion to generate practical and legal resolutions. Presented as a series of thought-provoking case studies, Human Resource Disputes & Resolutions is a compilation of some of the most common headaches discussed in the workshops. Using a questions and answers format, Sherrard provides a legal analysis to each incident and a resolution that is practical in application. Varying from mild to extreme cases, this unique book is an indispensable learning opportunity for both beginners and those with experience within employment law.
