Employment advice for employers
As an employer, you have a duty of care for your staff, and you must act lawfully and ethically. Whether you are dismissing an employee, hiring prospective employees, or dealing with employee absences, there are certain procedures you must go through.
We understand that it can be hard to keep up with changes in employment laws while simultaneously trying to run your business. You may or may not be acting unlawfully when making important decisions for your company.
Discrimination as an employer
As an employer, you need to be aware of your decisions and ensure that they are not discriminatory.
For example, you must consider discrimination and the “protected characteristics” when advertising for roles and interviewing prospective candidates.
In addition, you need to ensure that when you are making people redundant or dismissing individuals, you are not discriminating against certain groups. Discrimination claims can be financially damaging and affect your employer's reputation.
