Workplace mental health addressed in seminar
Mental health in the workplace will be examined in an upcoming event being held by Sintons.
Employee wellbeing is a key concern for businesses in creating a happy, healthy workforce, with mental health in particular being under the spotlight.
Now, in this seminar from Sintons’ employment team – Disability Discrimination and Mental Health: Guidance for the Workplace – employers will be supported to better understand their obligations and best courses of action in supporting workers.
The event, on April 27 in Newcastle, will look at action employers must take with regard to mental ill health and the implications of getting things wrong, and will also offer guidance on managing mental health within the workplace.
The seminar is the latest in a series of events held by Sintons’ employment team, all of which are full to capacity and a regularly oversubscribed.
Keith Land, head of employment at Sintons – and independently acknowledged as one of the leading employment specialists in the North of England – said: “Mental health is a very well-discussed topic, but it’s essential that employers understand their duties and obligations.
“For many businesses, they may think they are adhering to what they need to do – but is that actually the case? Hopefully in this event, we can help to shed some light on what employers are duty-bound to deliver, as well as delivering guidance around best practice in this area.
“Everyone wants to have a healthy and content workforce, but achieving that can sometimes be more difficult. Through this seminar, we hope offer some support in making that a reality.”
* The Disability Discrimination and Mental Health: Guidance for the Workplace seminar will be held on Thursday, April 27, from 8am to 10am at the Vertu Motors Arena, Scotswood Road, NE4 7AF. To register, contact Peter.email@example.com.
