Employment law has been one of the most rapidly developing areas of law over the last 20 years and has developed to a level of complexity that means getting it wrong can be very costly to any business.
Tribunal Judgments could potentially result in compensatory sums of more than £80,000 being awarded, irrespective of the size of the business. In addition, the valuable time away from the business and legal fees can have a serious effect on any business.
As well as financial implications, it can also damage employee relations and the reputation of your business. Therefore, obtaining sound advice at an early stage can make a real difference to your business.
