The aftermath of a claim is a prime opportunity to explore changes to a law practice, particularly issues around employees whose conduct might have contributed to the claim.
In this episode, guests Alex Haslam and Sarah Wood discuss systems around good employee supervision and the creation of ethical law firm cultures. They also discuss ways to approach disciplining or dismissing employees whose conduct is not meeting the firm’s expectations, and the employment law risks which arise from disciplinary action.
