Employing people often seems a perfectly straightforward matter, hire them and set them to work, but is it that simple?
From the minute you employ any staff, Employment laws come into play to regulate the relationship between you and your employees. These laws govern what employers can expect from employees, what employers can ask employees to do, and employees’ rights at work.
Employment law can be a useful tool and complying with the laws in place will make your organisation more efficient and more profitable. Looking after your employees is paramount in any business, and as a business owner, you will have many situations to manage, from pay and working hours, managing sickness absence, injury and disability, dismissing or disciplining employees, redundancies, training, capability or performance issues, conducting appraisals….the list goes on. Whilst many employers find the legal rights and responsibilities daunting it is not something you should be afraid of.
Getting things right from the very beginning is important and we can assist you in all aspects of putting these in place from help and assistance with Contracts of Employment, Employee Handbooks, Policies and Procedures etc…. all crucial in helping staff settle in, making sure they stay and become an effective and motivated member of the team.
But what happens when it goes wrong?
We understand that difficult employees, sickness absence, poor attitude, timekeeping or performance can put a massive strain on your business – and on you. If times get tough, we are on hand to offer friendly, supportive, expert advice to take the weight off your shoulders and support you through disciplinary and grievance issues, redundancies and if it comes to it, help you prepare for a tribunal. Our advice will free up your time so you can concentrate on what you do best.
We have many years’ of experience in providing HR and employment law advice to small businesses across the North West, from Cumbria to Lancashire and everything in between (and sometimes beyond!), including Barrow-in-Furness, Dalton, Ulverston, Kendal, Penrith and Lancaster so whatever your question, we are likely to have come across something similar before.
