Employment law advice for hassle-free business management
It's often easy to forget exactly why there is so much employment legislation to contend with. However, it's for a very good reason: it safeguards the wellbeing and rights of your employees, and actually makes it simpler to run your business fairly and effectively. Take, for example, UK-wide standards such as working time regulations, statutory sick pay and national minimum wage: not only do they prevent exploitation or unfair treatment of employees, they also save you from having to make moral or subjective decisions.
Unfortunately, although there's a good reason for these rules and regulations, you need more than just common sense to understand them. Here are just some of the ways in which Peninsula can help simplify matters:
- Obtaining employment law advice from an expert can be particularly useful in an emergency or troubling situation
- If you've ever found it difficult to know what to include in employment contracts, you're sure to appreciate our bespoke documentation service
- We provide HR software to monitor absences, holidays, and health and safety deadlines
- We'll prepare your case and represent you if you are taken to an employment tribunal
As an employer, it's so important to understand your obligations and know what you're up against. Familiarising yourself with our employment law advice at every opportunity could prevent you from making a costly mistake further down the line.
