Holiday & Working Time
The 1998 Working Time Regulations set out the employee’s rights in terms of how many hours they should work every week, how much paid holiday they are entitled to, and how long their breaks should be. All businesses have a duty of care to their employees, so failure to comply with these regulations could result in staff leaving or even legal action.
Redundancy & Restructure
Redundancy is a form of terminating the employment of employees and normally takes place when a business needs to decrease the size of the organisation in a bid to cut costs, or if there is no longer a need for that specific job or skill set. This is normally a last resort for businesses and has a lot of complex laws surrounding it.
Family Friendly Leave
Employees are entitled to a series of different leaves of absence when they have or adopt a child, such as:
- Maternity leave
- Paternity leave
- Shared parental leave
- Parental bereavement leave
- Adoption leave
Parents are also entitled to up to 18 weeks of unpaid leave until their child turns 18.
Health & Absence
Absence management is a delicate topic and any employee absence has a big cost implication for the business. But it is important to provide support to those employees to help them return to work and manage their well-being.
Grievances, Discrimination & Whistleblowing
It’s important that any complaint an employee raises isn’t dismissed and is dealt with fairly and appropriately. Clear and structured policies and procedures can help businesses and their employees with complaints, grievances and any other difficulties that are identified.
Employment Contracts & Recruitment
A contract is a legally binding document that protects the employer and the employee. It is an agreement that is signed before the start of employment to set expectations about the role and any company policies and procedures. This is a vital part of any recruitment process.
Learning & Development
An employer offering learning and development opportunities are often a very attractive prospect to anyone looking to join your company, but also acts as a great motivation tool.
A good learning and development strategy identifies what the current workforce skills are and what skills the business will need in the future – this is pivotal to the growth and success of your organisation.
Poor Performance & Misconduct
To maximise the performance of your employees, you need to make sure you are managing the expectations of your staff and dealing with poor performance.
Setting clear goals and objectives can be a quick solution to this, but having a structured approach to performance management is the key to fixing this problem.
Under the Employment Rights Act 1996, employees are protected against unfair dismissal. This means that if the employment of your staff is terminated, it needs to be for one of these reasons:
- Poor Behaviour
- A legal implication
- Competence or skillset
- Another substantial reason
Anything else could result in legal action against the employer.
