Examples of how we can help ….

  • Contracts – It is essential you have robust contracts, policies and procedures in place if you want to ensure that any employment issues are dealt with effectively and in a legally compliant way. Plus, if you don’t have the right contracts and procedures in place, you could actually be breaking the law – with very costly consequences.

  • Disciplinary and dismissal – As employers you have legal obligations to those who you employ. Those obligations include, for example, following policies and procedures before you discipline or dismiss a member of staff.
  • Discrimination in the Workplace – Other common areas where businesses fail in their employment law obligations is discrimination in the workplace. The Equality Act 2010 was put in place to ensure all employees are treated fairly at all stages of the employment process, including interview, appointment, performance appraisal, promotion, contract length and, of course, dismissal or redundancy.

As a business you need to make sure you steer clear of all claims.  You need systems in place and you need to ensure that these systems are adhered to.
