Employment Law Coronavirus Update
We know that as an employer these are very stressful and worrying times for you and your staff. We are here to help as best we can. To be able to assist you over the coming weeks and months all of our appointments can now take place over the phone.
Our Employment Law team are working successfully from home in line with government guidance. They have full access to the systems they need and our main switchboard and administrative functions continue to operate as normal.
One of the main things that we are being asked by businesses is what they can do with their staff in this period of downturn. A word of caution though please, do not fall foul of employment law rights when considering redundancies. Tribunal figures have rocketed recently and we would hate for your business to be added to the list. Please get in touch should you need any guidance.
With the furlough scheme being extended and on-going decisions around
the safe return to the workplace, home working and potential
redundancies, we have updated this guide to cover the key points
that your business may wish to consider.
We have put together a Disciplinary Action Guide for Employers featuring procedures, problems and grievances.
We have put together a redundancy procedure guide for employers to outline the full process, selecting people for redundancy, common mistakes and vital information you should consider to be able to make informed decisions.
