Ayrshire firms to get employment law advice at seminar

Ayrshire’s economy is picking up as summer approaches – but individuals looking for seasonal work and employers taking on part-timers need to be clear about changing employment law.

The seminar, at Kylestrome Hotel, 11 Miller Road, Ayr, 7.45am for 8am to 9.30 am, on Friday 16th May, is being run by local legal firm AC White.

Ewan Mowat, a partner with AC White, said: “We can see that the local economy is picking up. Staff are moving again and there are job opportunities. However, one question to ask as an employer is, are you protected and doing the right things?”
AC White are members of the United Employment Lawyers network. Malcolm Mackay, the chairman of UEL, will also be speaking at the seminar.
“I’m looking forward to joining Ewan and his colleagues in Ayr, where we know there is a lot of interest.”Mr Mowat said: “There are increasing opportunities in the growing Ayrshire economy but some firms are scared off by employment law.
We’ve created this seminar to help people deal with these important issues.”
Mr Mowat says small businesses often feel under pressure because they don’t have the resources and knowledge in employment law matters.

“We can see why busy firms avoid dealing with staff-related issues, such as contracts, handbooks, inductions and appraisals. And firms do need to be careful. Our seminar is designed to be helpful and highlight the pitfalls.”

Cost of attendance is £25.00 and includes breakfast. Anyone interested in attending should contact AC White on 01292 266900 or email [email protected]
