Employment law and Human Resource (HR) issues are often the most time-consuming and difficult areas for any business. It’s also an area in which business owners and managers can find themselves faced with substantial claims from employees, despite not being aware of having done anything wrong, or in respect of legislation that they were unaware even existed.
Prevention is often far better (and cheaper) than cure, and businesses’ interests lie in ensuring that they are aware of the latest developments in UK employment law, are well grounded in HR issues and have immediate access to expert legal advice if trouble starts.
