Employment Law


Employment law and maintaining compliance with this constantly evolving and complex legislative framework is one of the great day-to-day administrative challenges for smaller businesses.  Many businesses make the mistake of not updating their policies and procedures and failing to ensure that they are complying with their duty as employers. This can result in costly consequence and put businesses at unnecessary risk.

Likewise managing staff within this fast changing set of regulations and procedures is fraught with hazard, particularly in situations of disciplinary action or redundancy.  Failure to tackle these matters within the detail of the law can frequently result in very poor outcomes and high costs, quite the opposite of what was intended for motivating and shaping a workforce.
