Frequently Asked Questions

How does employment law affect a business?

Employment law profoundly shapes businesses by establishing a legal framework for the employer-employee dynamic. Ensuring compliance with regulations is paramount, covering aspects like minimum wage, working hours, and workplace safety. 

Businesses must craft contracts that align with employment laws, outlining terms of employment, while also navigating guidelines for disciplinary procedures, health and safety compliance, and the establishment of employee benefits. By adhering to these regulations, businesses not only mitigate legal risks but also contribute to positive workplace cultures that attract and retain talent.


What are the consequences of a business not following employment legislation?

The consequences of not following employment legislation on your business can be huge. You could face fines or penalties for breaching employment or health and safety laws and, you may have to go through lengthy, time-consuming and costly court proceedings if a dispute arises. 

This can cause distress amongst your staff and affect productivity levels and performance. In addition, not following employment legislation can impact your reputation as an employer which can cause problems with staff retention or recruitment.


What employment legislation do businesses have to follow?

Businesses need to follow a number of employment rules including those in the Working Time Regulations (1998, amended 2003), the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Equality Act 2010 to name a few.
