Dealing with Difficult Employees in a Changing Workplace – Employment Law

Horrible Bosses, Michael Scott from The Office and Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada to name a few - we've all heard and seen plenty about bad bosses thanks to the big screen. Come along to 'Dealing with Difficult Employees in a Changing Workplace' on Thursday 10 September in Norwest Business Park to discover what happens when the shoe is on the other foot!

Businesses in today's economy need to be more agile responding to change than ever before. Sometimes, adaptation comes in the form of a new manager who has a brief to shake things up – a new direction for the business or just doing things differently. In an ideal world, existing staff would embrace the journey but in reality it's never that easy.

Staff who find the adjustment period tricky can create all sorts of havoc for a manager – from allegations of bullying or harassment, prolonged sick leave, non compliance and hostility.

The Employment Law team from Coleman Greig will take you through some typical scenarios and considerations around dealing with difficult situations where change results in opposition – balancing the benefits and risks of different courses of action, including:

  • What sort of claims may arise
  • How you minimise the risks
  • Working out if the risks are worth taking
  • Restructuring and redundancies
  • Communication and getting buy-in.
