Employment Law

Whether you are an employer or an employee, the laws relating to employment never stay the same for long.

Putting it in writing

Contracts of employment are essential if the relationship between employer and employee is to begin on a firm footing. Thought should be given to each individual employee's role in a business, and any particular aspect provided for within a specially tailored document.

Employers should also make sure that they do not fall foul of the law: every employee should be provided with a statement of terms or a contract of employment within two months of starting work.

Prevention is better than cure

Milne Moser has always provided my business with practical and cost-effective advice in employment matters. I would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

The law requires employers to have a whole range of policies and procedures in place in order to help the relationship between employer and employee run smoothly. Without these policies and procedures, neither party has a clear idea of what should happen in the event of a change to that relationship, which can lead to problems if disagreements arise.

When it breaks down

Even with the best of intentions, relationships between employers and employees can break down. Procedures need to be set in motion and deadlines need to be met. With professional advice and support, the next steps can be made with confidence and in good time.
