When you run a business you want to make sure you are getting the best from your employees.
Employing people is essential for the growth of any business, but with it comes legal responsibilities, pitfalls and challenges – no matter what sector you are in.
As Employment Lawyers the questions we are asked regularly include “What do I do if a key member of my workforce is on long term sick?”, “how do I dismiss a worker who isn’t doing his job?”, “how do I manage an employee who is showing signs of stress but not admitting to it?”, “I want to reduce my employee numbers to increase profitability, I am told that the law says I can’t sack anyone if they have been with me for over 2 years”, “I have a manager about to go on maternity leave. Do I have to keep her job open?”, “I take on sub-contractors regularly in my business, what does the law require me to do to ensure they are not classed as employees?” ………..and so on.
We are a law firm regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and you can rest assured that you will get the most watertight advice from experienced professionals to minimise the risk of tribunal claims from employees.
