Studies show that the average person spends 90,000 hours of their life at work. With such a large proportion of time spent in the workplace, it's no wonder that employment law needs to be so comprehensively covered.
From recruitment and employment contracts to sick pay, pensions and tribunals, employment law covers a vast range of topics. And it's something which every employer needs to take seriously.

Why do I need to know about employment law?
If you are an employer, you must comply with minimum statutory requirements regarding working hours, sick pay and annual leave as well as respecting a broad range of employee rights.
Employers can be liable for discrimination and victimisation, so should have written disciplinary and grievance procedures. The rules are tight and a proper understanding of them is crucial in the workplace.
Having a solicitor trained in employment law to advise you can be an invaluable asset to your business.
