Welcome to the third edition of Education Eye – the quarterly Peninsula Business Services update for our Education clients. We hope you all had a good Christmas break and enjoyed New Year.

In this month’s edition, our first of 2014, we have a look at how to deal with staff issues in relation to the extreme weather we have been experiencing recently. We also focus on how education establishments can manage sickness absence, including a summary of essential tips. We’ve also included an article on one of the big stories in employment law of 2013 – pre-termination confidential negotiations which can be used to terminate employment, where we take a look at the practical aspects of the new legislation.

As always, if you have any feedback or suggestions for Education Eye, please email us ateducationeye@peninsula-uk.com
