Could your business be at risk of an employment claim?
Failure to comply with employment legislation can be devastating for a business. Compensation awards for unfair dismissal claims can be in excess of £75,000 and awards for discrimination are unlimited. Certain tribunal cases, such as equal pay, bullying or harassment, and claims of discrimination quite often make headline news, leading to reputational damage, and of course, a lot of negative publicity through social media channels.
