Commercial Employment Law
Employment law is a complex issue, with regularly updated legislation.
Employers are seeing their responsibilities intensified, with increasingly harsh penalties for any non-compliance. Yet at the same time, there are many HR teams who are meeting this increased responsibility with diminished resources as their budgets are cut. Each employee needs to be aware of how any alterations to the relevant legislation could impact the individual duties and obligations of their role.
