Compliant Employment Agreements are Paramount

Posted by on 17 May 2018 | 0 Comments

With all the recent changes in employment law, some recent significant Employment Court cases (click here to view), and with many more important changes being proposed by the Labour Government over the coming months, having compliant Employment Agreements for your employees is paramount.  With that in mind, we have made the decision to no longer offer template employment agreements and tailor them to your needs instead.
 
We have always aimed to provide a service to you to make your life easier, including supplying template employment agreements that you can tailor to suit your business requirements. Due to the increasing complexity of employment law combined with all the changes happening and proposed, we will no longer be providing these template documents. This decision has been made with our clients’ best interests at heart. 
 
It is our view that having the ability to make a little ‘tweak’ here and there on a template employment agreement, which is a legally binding document,  exposes you to potential risk if you get the wording wrong, or if you are not aware that changes to employment law have been made.
 
We are happy to work with you to provide an employment agreement tailored to suit your business needs, so do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.

Employer Successful in Constructive Dismissal Case

Posted by on 16 May 2018 | 0 Comments

We have seen an increased occurrence of employees resigning and then raising a PG, stating that their resignation was constructive dismissal and unjustified.  In many instances they haven’t previously raised their concerns with their employer or the issues raised appeared minor with the employer believing each was addressed at the time as no further concern was raised by the employee.  However, post-resignation, the employee might list all of the minor issues trying to prove that a trend existed. They may even claim an illness that they believe resulted from issues in their employment.
