Easy ways to be taken to an Employment Tribunal...
And even easier ways to avoid it in the first place

As an employer, it is essential you get things right when employing or recruiting staff. Employment law is one of the most complex and fastest developing areas of law in the UK, where even small mistakes can be costly.

No business can afford to ignore employment law and be on the receiving end of one of the 218,000 Employment Tribunal claims that are submitted every year - an increase of 44% from those submitted in 2008-09. We believe that the better informed you are from the outset, the better chance you have of avoiding a claim.

From hiring to firing, it is easy to fall foul of complicated employment law, or a piece of legislation you didn't realise applied to you.

How can we help you?
