    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    All employees have basic rights in the workplace. It is important for us to understand these rights and to know what we and the people we support are entitled to.

    This training is especially designed to help frontline employability staff in Fife have a better understanding of employment rights for their clients, explore common issues that arise when people start a new job and know where to go to get help if things cannot be resolved easily.

    Participants will:

    • Understand the relevance of employment rights to employability policy, services, and clients;
    • Gain an understanding of basic employment and equality rights in the workplace and how these can support their clients;
    • Discuss common issues that arise in recruitment, the first few months in a new job or when life challenges arise;
    • Understand how to assist clients to consider the disclosure of personal information;
    • Understand core relevant workplace policies and procedures;
    • Understand how to signpost clients for help in the above areas.

    The training will be delivered by Kathleen Bolt, Mediation Services Ltd. Kathleen is a solicitor and mediator, she specialises in employment and equality law and workplace mediations.

    All participants will receive a certification of attendance.
