HR, employment law and your business – free pdf e-book

Knowing about your employment law obligations to your workforce and the HR policies and procedures you should be operating within your business is not merely about compliance or the dangers of ending up in the Employment Tribunal.

Thousands of hours of management time worth millions of pounds to the UK economy every year is spent dealing with employment and HR disputes.

Many of those disputes could have been avoided if business owners and their managers were aware of the basics of employment law and how it impacts on the way they can deal with people who work for them, and if proper written HR policies and procedures were put in place.
