Employment Law Newsletter

Employment Law is one of the fastest changing of all areas of law and provides pitfalls for the unwary.  There are still Employers who are apparently unaware of the legal requirement, since October 2004, to implement statutory disciplinary/dismissal and grievance procedures. 

The result of non-compliance with such procedures can result in an increase by up to 50% of compensation payable to the Employee when the Employer is at fault, and a decrease when the Employee is at fault.  In October 2006 new anti-age discrimination legislation is coming into force which will affect all areas of the employment field, including recruitment and benefits offered to staff.
