(Updated 12:33pm 22nd August 2014)

Local businesses have the opportunity to learn about the rules of hiring staff and expanding their workforce during a free seminar on Portland.

The event at the Marina's Harbour Lights Bar, will discuss zero hour contracts, flexible working, unfair dismissal and discrimination.

Dawn Gallie, Head of Battens' Employment Team, said: "We will explain what has to be included in contracts and staff handbooks as well as ongoing issues to consider, giving examples of good and bad practice.

"It's vital to make sure your processes are right whether you are a small business with just one or two employees or a larger organisation with multiple departments. Understanding the rules can ensure peace of mind and the avoidance of potentially costly disputes."

Businesses from Weymouth and Portland are invited to come along on the 16th of September between 6PM - 8:30PM in the evening. To register your interest visit, call Sarah Knowles on 01935 846255 or email
