Employment Rights

As an employer, it is important for you to understand the rights that employees are entitled to in the course of their employment. These rights are outlined in the Employment Rights Act 1996, which gives statutory guidelines that employers must adhere to.

The duties that an employer owes to an employee are increasingly wide ranging and also cover, in some circumstances, relationships with fellow employees. To avoid any misunderstandings or tribunal claims it is imperative that you safeguard your business and understand your rights and obligations as an employer.
