Employment legislation can be complex and new legislation can be introduced while existing legislation can be amended or repealed. Changes to Employment Legislation used to be limited to April and October in each year but now they can be introduced at any time of the year, making it difficult to keep on top of changes and protect your business. On top of all that there are consultations and case law which can have an impact on how you run your business.<.p>

Keeping up to date with evolving employment legislation helps you reduce the risk of time consuming tribunal claims and financial penalties.

This Employment Law Update, is constantly evolving, provides you with a solid grounding on recent changes to employment legislation and provides insight into upcoming changes in the law that will enable your business to stay informed, legally compliant and well prepared.
