Start My HR Happiness


I attended Kate Russell's Disciplinary Workshops held in-house. It was fantastic. It completely opened my mind up to how to ask "open" questions and the whole disciplinary process, at the same time re-iterating my knowledge.

Most course / workshops tend to be quite tedious, however with Kate's unique delivery, there was no way you would get bored. Kate was an absolute gem of a trainer and I would indeed look forward to attending any future workshops / courses.

29th March 2017 - Time Off for Dependents

All employees (regardless of their length of service) have the right to take a 'reasonable' amount of unpaid time off work without notice to deal with particular unexpected emergencies affecting their dependants. It's not always an easy area to manage.

We’ll be covering:

  • What is a dependent?
  • What circumstances are covered?
  • How much time is “reasonable” time off?
  • The process for requesting time off
  • What if the employee is taking emergency time off on a regular basis?

Feedback from delegates:

A good mix with legal cases and slides.
Alan Cambridge, Director, Peacock Engineering

Entertaining and informative. It highlighted aspects I had previously not considered.
David Chapman, Engineering Consultant, DLCEC
