Employment Law For Employers

Every employer/company or partnerships often undertake a different procedure when it comes to employee management. The size of the business often reflects the method used to control human resources.

You could be managing HR on your own if you run a small business or alternatively obtain a dedicated HR team for a larger business. To avoid employment tribunal proceedings/time and money, it is best to seek legal advice as no matter what size the organisation may be, employment issues can always be raised.

Employment Law is ever changing and difficult for people to understand if you are unfamiliar with rules and legislations. As employees are more likely to take legal action due to becoming more knowledgeable of their rights, it is vital for employers to keep up-to-date legally and remain educated in these matters.

It has become essential for employers to be fully aware of procedures and all aspects of employment law. With tribunal applications jumping to a staggering 130,000 each year in the UK alone and unfair dismissals limits being taken up to £60,000, it is important for employers to be advised so they are prepared for every outcome.
