Employment Law for Employers
Whilst trying to deal with the practicalities of running a business focusing on profitability and efficiency employment law can be a particular problem for small to medium sized firms, with employment law issues arising when you least expect them, or certainly when you do not feel that you have the time to address the situation properly. Mansfield Solicitors and Advocates Limited have a team who can guide you through all your employment law issues.
As your business grows it is really important to be clear on company policy and to document this within an office procedures manual. To produce such a document can feel like an arduous and time-consuming process but in the long run being clear on rules and regulations offers both the company and employees protection and will ultimately save time and money where in the absence of such clarity ambiguity can have costly consequences.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The regulations came into effect in May of 2018 and increases the potential fines for organisations for mishandling data and makes it easier for customers and clients alike to discover what information you hold on them.
If you are worried if you company is GDPR compliant contact us to day and speak to a member of our Employment team who will be happy to address your concerns.
When an employment matter cannot be resolved through the company’s own grievance procedure you may find you are faced with an employment tribunal. To put yourself at your best advantage you should have an experienced team in your corner to give you realistic, practical advice and assistance.
