No matter how well you recruit, review and reward your staff team, you will face staff issues from time to time.
As you no doubt know, employment law has a lot to say about your rights as an employer and their rights as an employee. More than that, it dictates how you must deal with certain events.
So, the simple (if unhelpful!) answer to this question is "make sure you understand what UK employment law has to say about your issue and act accordingly." However, if you're like most business owners I know, you are short on time. You probably don't want to wade through legal tomes either!
That's why an HR or employment advisor can be such a useful asset to you and your business. We're trained and qualified to advise you on three main things:
1. How the law affects you and your situation
2. What best practice is in similar situations to those you are facing
(In other words, we're here to help you comply with the law, and go beyond the basics to help you deal with each staff related situation you face in the best way possible.)
And what about point 3? Here it is:
3. To help you avoid future staff problems by advising you on building a high-performing and happy team.
