Staying up to date with employment law can be a headache. Getting it wrong can be costly. Unfair dismissal can cost up to £50,000 at an Employment Tribunal and there is no ceiling on compensation for discrimination.
But how much do you know about employment law? Can an applicant for job claim discrimination without having attended an interview? What can I include in a contract of employment? Do casual staff have any entitlement to paid leave? Can I recover training costs?
The answer is not always one you want to hear, but there is a way to make employment law work for you by avoiding costly mistakes and getting the most out of your staff.
Habia has guidance available that ensures that you don't let employment law get in the way of running a successful business.
