To what extent are ‘protected conversations’ really protected?
July 29, 2016
In People Hour #15, Jo Tindall discusses ‘protected conversations’.
The concept of a ‘protected conversation’ was introduced by the Government a few years ago to enable employers to carry out negotiations with employees with a view to terminating their employment, without the fear of those discussions coming before a court or tribunal.
However, the limitations on ‘protected conversations’, for example the fact that they do not cover discrimination claims, mean that employers may not always be as protected as they think.
This session is aimed at HR practitioners and senior managers
