Are you an Employer in the know? Faced with a barrage of constantly changing rules and regulations, employing staff is a potential minefield for any employer – from the smallest family run business to the largest multinational organisation.
Despite the Government’s commitment to reducing the regulatory burdens on business, this year has seen a significant number of changes to employment law.
Employers are now faced with further changes to encourage a “family friendly” working environment – in particular, the new Parental Leave Regulations which are now in force and affect all parents of children born or adopted after 3rd April 2011.
How can we help you? Hosting a FREE* Employment Seminar
|The times when difficulties can arise and things can go wrong are during the period of parental leave and when an employee returns to work.|
To assist local employers to understand their obligations, we have teamed up with Sylvester Mackett Solicitors to deliver a FREE* essential workshop that will guide you through employment law relating to maternity, paternity, pregnancy and adoption leave including the latest changes in legislation.
