First Practice Management
- Posted Tuesday May 20, 2014
First Practice Management (FPM) is proud to announce a major revamp of its HR / Employment Law Guidance Area.
After extensive revision the new HR / Employment Law Guidance Area is filled with information and guidance for our members to improve their knowledge on all the HR requirements for running a GP Practice. The new HR / Employment Law Guidance Area will also help support our members’ personal and professional development as a manager in primary care.
Our ultimate aim for the new HR / Employment Law Guidance Area was to streamline this section making it easier to navigate so our members can get directly to the information and support they require. The new HR / Employment Law Guidance Area is broken down into the following Zones:
- Recruitment & Selection
- The Contract of Employment
- Policies & Procedures
- Equality & Diversity
- Performance Management
- Bullying & Harassment
- Data Protection
- Probationary Periods
- Sickness Absence
- Working Time Regulations
- Parental Right
- Time Off
- TUPE (Coming Soon)
- Retirement, Resignation & Redundancy
- Employment Tribunals
It’s always been important for us to provide our members with a superb service, and we aim to keep our documents up to date so you always have the latest and most current information available to you with the combination of the HR Zone, Protocol Libraries, Advice Line and our Articles.
To view the new HR Zone log into FPM and click on the HR / Employment Law link in the Member Section.
We hope you like the new HR Zone, and we’re happy to hear any feedback you might have. As always we want to provide our members with the very best information to help support and develop their practice.
