HR & Employment Law

HR & Employment Law

As employment legislation continues to develop, the challenges faced by business continue to increase and many employers are failing to meet the exacting standards expected of them. With tribunals reputed for siding with employees and chastising employers for seemingly trivial failures to follow procedure, businesses are increasingly exposed to potential claims from employees which could result in crippling awards, and sometimes even the collapse of business itself.

 

On top of all this, it is extremely easy for begrudged employees to raise a claim at tribunal with very little expense incurred by them. So even if the employer wins at tribunal they will generally be left significantly out of pocket as a result of the legal expenses they incur.

 

With a 33% increase in tribunal cases in 2009-2010, developing sound employment law procedures and best practice methods will not only significantly increase your chances of successfully defending a tribunal claim, it will also allow your business to resolve the key issues reducing the likelihood of employees escalating matters to tribunal.
