Protected conversations are a way of being able to talk more openly with an employee about resolving issues or looking to terminate their employment. Anything said in the conversation cannot be referred to in an unfair dismissal claim.

This event will focus on how to have off the record conversations with employees.  They are often called ‘without prejudice’ or ‘protected conversations’.

Why would an employer want such a conversation?

Sometimes when an employer is dealing with a challenging situation with an employee, they are faced with lengthy processes or uncertain outcomes. Having a protected conversation gives the employer and employee the opportunity to discuss the situation more openly, resolve it more quickly and often with the employee giving up claims against the employer.

What will you learn at the event?

  • The legal framework surrounding protected conversations
  • The implications of having protected conversations
  • How practically they should be approached.
