Three things to do in October
- Date: Thursday 24th September 2015
- Review your hours of work arrangements
Following a recent ruling on travel time arrangements, employers need to review their practices and put appropriate measures in place to ensure they comply with legislation. Please revisit our article in last month’s newsletter for more details or contact your HR consultant for more information.
- Plan your Christmas rota
Many organisations go into overdrive over the Christmas period so if you haven’t already done so, plan your holidays carefully. If you are going into shut-down, your employees will need sufficient notice of how many days of annual leave they need to plan in. This should be agreed contractually so if you haven’t agreed anything in writing, make sure you communicate your plans ASAP.
- 10th October is World Mental Health Day
A number of organisations support the World Mental Health Day through charity donations, volunteering or simply by reviewing their own procedures and raising awareness. This year’s focus is ‘Dignity in Mental Health’.
