Did you know?

Failure to have up to date contracts in place if you have 5 or more employees is illegal.

Failure to follow the new Grievance and Disciplinary procedures launched in October 2004 can lead to instant fines from Tribunal Courts. Failing to treat pregnant women fairly whilst they are employed, therefore discriminating against them, can lead to high Tribunal costs as well as further recruitment and training costs.

If you fail to implement a proper and fair redundancy programme you can be awarded extra costs by a Tribunal Court if the employee takes you to Tribunal for unfair dismissal.
