Suite of timely HR Webinars

HR experts Peninsula in conjunction with Ennis Chamber will host a number of timely webinars over the coming weeks, to address key HR issues.

  1. Creating a COVID-19 Business Response Plan, Wednesday May 19,  at 2pm

When it comes to reopening in the next two months, a COVID-19 Business Response Plan is one of the most essential documents you should have in place.

The Plan should identify the individuals on the response team and the procedures to be followed when dealing with a suspected case of COVID-19 at work.

It should also include an obligation on employees to immediately notify management if they develop any symptoms.

To help you put your Plan together, this Peninsula webinar will cover areas such as:

  • Creating and implementing a COVID-19 Business Response Plan.
  • Conducting internal audits to ensure COVID-19 processes are doing what they should.
  • The importance of effective health & safety documentation.
  • The benefits of having a robust health & safety management plan.

2.  Right to Disconnect and Parent’s Leave, Thursday, May 20, at 11am. (This webinar is delivered by Peninsula sister company Graphite HRM)

In early April, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar signed the Code of Practice for Employers and Employees on the Right to Disconnect (the Code). The Right to Disconnect allows employees to switch off from work outside of normal working hours. With mobile communications devices so prevalent in the workplace, the Code envisages that employees will exercise their right not to respond immediately to emails, telephone calls, or other messages outside normal working hours.

To dig deeper into the three key rights enshrined in the Code and explain what your business needs to do, Graphite HRM are hosting a webinar to  look at:

1. What is the Right to Disconnect?

2. Employer and employee obligations.

3. How to ensure employees switch off.

4. The latest on Parent’s leave and Paternity Leave.

The Right to Disconnect represents a key development in employment law.

As a business owner, it’s vitally important that your employment contracts and policies are up to date. But, staying on top of documentation hasn’t been easy during the pandemic. As a result, your employment contracts and policies might not yet reflect the way your business now works.

  • The difference between an employee contract and handbook.
  • How to review and update essential employment contracts and policies.
  • How to communicate changes to employees.

Managing the COVID-19 Vaccination in Your Business, Tuesday June 22, at 2pm

While the COVID-19 vaccine offers us all the chance to return to some normality, recent polling suggests there’s some vaccine hesitancy. Add in the fact that there’s currently no legal basis to insist that people take the vaccine, and managing vaccinations in the workplace becomes a whole lot trickier. Still, it’s best to prepare for the vaccination before your employees become eligible so your business can move forward as safely and strongly as possible.

That means getting the answers on how to resolve hesitancy issues, what to do about employees returning to work without having the jab, and how to ensure a safe working environment for your employees.

This free webinar is designed to give you expert advice on:

  • How to approach the issue of vaccinations with your workforce and communicate effectively with staff.
  • Whether you can encourage employees to have the vaccine or make it mandatory.
  • What to do if employees are uncomfortable with or don’t want to take the vaccine.
  • How to write a vaccine policy for your business. Prepare now for any workplace vaccination issue by attending our webinar.
