Employment Legislation & Other Legal Issues
HELP WITH STAFFING MATTERS, WORKING TIME DIRECTIVE, DISCRIMINATION LEGISLATION, HEALTH AND SAFETY AND OTHER LEGAL ISSUES.
The workplace has become a much more legally restricted environment than ever and it is important that you understand what is necessary to be done in order to be compliant with the law, when it comes to hiring staff under EU and UK laws.
There is a whole raft of legislation and procedures to comply with and they include (but not limited to) pensions, national insurance, tax, recruitment, employing staff, employment contracts, paternity/maternity, redundancies, dismissals, discrimination and health and safety in the workplace.
It is difficult to keep abreast of all these changes, especially if you don't have a well staffed HR function within your organisation.
