How employers can survive Christmas


BHETA is making a webinar available to members, featuring guidance on the top six HR issues for employers during the Christmas period.  Created by BHETA business service provider Ellis Whittam, 30 minute webinar is available on demand by clicking on:  

Billed as an Employers’ Survival Guide, the webinar is presented by Ellis Whittam’s Senior Employment Law Adviser, Hussain Kayani, who discusses the best way to manage festive incidents such as employees kissing under the mistletoe, inappropriate Secret Santa gifts or staff showing up late for shifts or not at all.

Hussain shares examples of what happens when employers fail to follow best practice when dealing with typical festive employee scenarios such as:

  • Lateness
  • Hangovers
  • No shows
  • Secret Santa
  • Dressing up
  • The office Christmas party

Ellis Whittam’s team of HR and Employment Law experts are experienced dealing with a full spectrum of employee relations matters quickly and compliantly. With HR issues rife in the lead up to Christmas, this can be a very stressful time for those in charge of ensuring November and December remain a profitable and productive period.
