There are many areas covered by HR Law, such as overseeing and managing duties related to hiring, firing, employee benefits, wages, pay checks, and overtime. It may also pertain to workplace safety, privacy, and preventing discrimination and harassment. We can provide you with training, contacts or documents to help you navigate the complex world surrounding HR Law and employment issues.
Significant changes in HR Law are anticipated for 2018/2019, due to the ongoing uncertainty resulting from the Brexit referendum. Brexit could result in a complete overhaul of employee rights and human rights within the workplace. Therefore, there is a huge amount of work to do to make sure the business is compliant with new data protection and gender pay gap regulations. Another thing is that employers are likely to see employment costs increase as the apprenticeship levy and additional fees for sponsoring foreign workers are introduced, and tax savings for employee benefits are significantly reduced.
HR Policies & Employment Legislation can be confusing at the best of time, but even more so in a Unionized Workplace or with a unionized employee. Because of the number of unions in the UK there are a considerable number of variations within the area of HR Law depending on the type of sector in which you are operating. Every employee has the right under labour legislation to join and participate in a trade union of their choice. The purpose of labour legislation is mostly there to facilitate the relationship between an employer and employees during union organizing, certification, collective agreement negotiation, strikes and lockouts, and dispute resolution.
