Essential Employment Law

Essential Employment Law

Introduction

New UK & European employment laws seem to be arriving almost daily. Employment law is a growing minefield for business owners and managers, and mistakes can be costly.

Employment tribunal applications in 2009 - 2010 were 56% up on last year with 236,348 claims lodged. Tribunal awards can top £76,000 (basic + compensation awards) and can be unlimited in some circumstances. Although the actual awards are on average much lower than this the combination of awards and legal bills can be devastating for businesses.
