HR Advice For Employers
Running a business of any size can be a very time-consuming and demanding job. This is often exacerbated if budgets do not allow for in-house departments to deal specifically with legal or human resources, both of which can be incredibly complicated. Unless someone in the company is formally trained in employment law or HR, understanding and implementing all of the legislation into a business effectively can be a very daunting task. Especially as, if they are not followed correctly, there can be severe repercussions that could affect the entire company.
Human resources cover all relevant procedures related to employment law:
- TUPE problems
- Making redundancies
- Poor staff performance (including instances of gross misconduct. These can all lead to various disciplinary actions)
- Sick leave
- Grievance procedure
HR advice for employers concerning any of these situations is very important as there are strict and complex rules to abide by, especially on the employers behalf. If these are not followed, or if documentation is out of date and followed incorrectly, the situation can escalate to become very complicated. Mistaken legislation can sometimes result in employment tribunals which can be very costly and stressful to all parties involved.
For start-ups or smaller businesses, employing a trained professional or outsourcing these services can often be an additional expense that is easy to overlook.
