Solent business school discuss recent session with Paris Smith

Here, Southampton Solent Business School discuss a recently delivered session on protected conversations and employment tribunals.


Claire Merritt, specialist employment law solicitor of Paris Smith Solicitors, and Audrey Horton, senior lecturer of Southampton Solent Business School HRM subject group, led an informative and useful session on the new rules relating to ‘protected conversations’.

This makes it easier for employers and employees to have frank and risk free discussions about possible termination of employment when things aren’t working out, safe in the knowledge that this candour cannot come back to haunt them in a subsequent employment tribunal claim.

50+ human resource management networkers, comprising of human resources professionals leaders; senior and line managers; professional students and Solent alumni, engaged in this collaborative session as we were treated to role play and gained an understanding of the ‘protected conversations’ process.

It was wonderful to welcome back some Solent Business School HRM alumni who shared their success stories of their HRM roles in local business with us – thank you, please do keep in touch.

Southampton Solent Business School has a thriving HRM Network which hosts a number of events throughout the year. HRM professionals, general managers, professional students and indeed any leaders keen to gain insight and knowledge in people management issues are all welcome to join this network and to join us at these events.
