Employing staff for the first time: Learning Lunch (151118)

 Registration is closed for this event
Learning Lunches are a valuable opportunity to informally network with colleagues across the voluntary sector and to hear from some guest speakers who are experts in their field. These events are hosted by some special venues across Suffolk.


Employing staff for the first time can seem a daunting prospect. Be informed with this overview from the experts at Ashtons Legal who will address checks to carry out before people start, National Minimum Wage and the Living Wage, the basics of auto-enrolment for pensions, the basic procedures for new joiner paperwork – offer letters, contracts, job descriptions, policies and procedures, induction and the do’s and don’ts of probationary periods.

Date: Thursday 15 November

Time: 12.00 – 1.30pm

Venue: Ashtons Legal, Waterfront House, Wherry Quay, Ipswich IP4 1AS.

No on-site parking but plenty of pay and display car parks in the waterfront area.

Cost: £15 includes light lunch and refreshments

Spaces: 12 – book early to avoid disappointment
