Employment & Benefits

Over recent years it seems as if employment law has changed every month and the pace of change is, if anything, increasing. There are new Acts, new regulations, and more and more directives from Europe. It is very difficult for an employer to keep up with all this legislation, yet the penalties for getting it wrong are rising and may well rise further in future. There are many legal pitfalls whenever anything to do with employment is considered but careful planning in advance can avoid these traps.
