We were delighted to welcome Robin Aston from Astons Solicitors to our head office in Ruislip.
He presented an employment law update to our contract supervisors, HR team, managers and directors.
Robin has over 40 years’ experience working as an employment lawyer, so was able to present a very informative yet amusing session, filled with lots of real-life anecdotes and case law.
The sessions covered
- understanding employment status
- understanding contracts
- managing staff concerns and issues.
Our contract supervisors between them manage around 1,000 workers on projects right across the UK. So it’s important that they are aware of best practice in employment and supporting our teams. The aim of the training was to ensure that our staff are fully equipped to deal with all situations, both professionally and also sensitively.
We are delighted with the support that Astons Solicitors has given us over the last 15 year. We confidently rely on their expertise to ensure that our processes are in line with the ever-changing employment legislative landscape.
They also help us to ensure that our people are provided with fair and transparent employment practices from all levels of management in the VGC Group.
