LPC Support Seminar – Personnel Management for LPC Chairs and LPC Members

Thursday, 4 October, 2012 10am to 4pm
Malmaison, Manchester

Also running on 12th October 2012 in London at the Ambassadors Bloomsbury.

To support LPC chairs, vice chairs and other LPC members involved with the management of LPC personnel, this seminar takes delegates through the some of the key aspects of employment law to make sure your LPC complies with the ever-changing HR requirements, avoids pitfalls, and has the structure and expertise in place to face the challenges ahead. Also for LPCs considering restructuring, it is vital to make sure employment problems are avoided and that you are aware of the employment law issues that arise – getting it wrong can be very costly, both in time and money.

The day covers:

• Recruitment- how to prepare the job description and candidate profile; advertising the post and interviewing; scrutinising the CV; agreeing the contract, self-employed or employee; legal obligations

• Performance management- appraisals and setting targets; managing poor performance

• Change management- updating job descriptions, contracts of employment and self-employed contracts- what you can and can’t do ; restructuring; supporting staff and identifying training needs; handling resistance to change

• Some of the problems that can occur with LPC restructuring and how to handle them

• The role of the LPC chair as a manager; chairs remuneration/ honoraria; LPC officers’ accountability


The day also provides a good opportunity for LPC chairs to network with others and share experiences and ideas.
