There have been many changes in the law and regulation applicable to the duties, rights and obligations of employers and employees. The Employment Act 2008 has only just come into full implementation. The overriding duties of the employer to act lawfully, fairly, consistently and reasonably towards its employees remain. However, what that may mean in practice has to some extent been clarified and extended.
Wellers Law Group LLP has a team of experienced employment lawyers who not only deal with disputes arising when relations break down between employers and employees but who can ensure that your business employment paperwork is up to date and enforceable before any dispute arises.
Of principal concern to any business, especially in a challenging economic climate, is to ensure that its employment contracts and its Staff Handbook are clear, easy to follow and to use. The contract should set out all that is required under the relevant law. The Staff Handbook should include procedures for disciplinary matters and grievances and the employer’s policies against discrimination and harassment etc. Wellers has much experience of drafting successful employment documents for many businesses.
