In these uncertain times understanding your rights as an employee has never been more significant.  Employers have to come to terms with the changing landscape and do what they think is right to protect their businesses, and whilst they do have a legal right to make redundancies they also legally need to follow a process/framework. Employment, even in these hard times, still needs to be legal and fair.

Employment Law is complex and in the current climate there are even more opportunities for an employer to fail to uphold your rights as an employee.
