Why you need to attend?

By understanding the legal and behavioural aspects of complaints, this programme will help you deal with your complaints more efficiently and in a fair manner.

How? By showing you when the consumer might have a justified complaint and giving you the tools to deal with it in the right way first time around.

What are its aims?

The course will deliver a good understanding of legislation and understanding customer behaviours which will assist businesses to raise standards and improve the experience of their customers.

What does it cover?

Consumer Law: Understanding How consumer law impacts on your roles.

  • Introduction to Consumer Law
  • Consumer Rights Act 2015 and how this has changed the legal landscape
  • Other relevant legislation, such as Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013
  • Compensation and the principles that sit behind compensation awards
  • Common furniture and home improvement complaints and how to deal with them. We’ll cover common complaints, how to avoid them arising and when a third party assessment might be appropriate.
  • How to identify justified complaints and deal with them quickly.
  • Validation

Consolidation

We’ll share case studies, relevant to the goods or services that you supply to your customers to help clarify the topics covered. We’ll discuss the consumer’s compensatory entitlement by reference to the approach taken by the courts and the Ombudsman.
