Regardless of the size of your business, it is vital you have the appropriate Employment Law, HR and Health & Safety provisions in place.
The correct policies, systems, certifications and operating procedures provide your employees with clarity and a framework for what is expected and required of them. This clarity ensures you are well placed to respond to and, if required, defend your business if an issue occurs.
Management theory often highlights the importance of putting people first in an organisation. We support this view in most cases, but when it comes to the law, the priority has to be to protect the interests of the business, its owners and the entire company first. When faced with an issue with an employee, its vital the management take a step back and get expert advice on how to handle the matter. Often this approach can lead to a better and more satisfactory resolution all round.
Spending time and money on legal advice, implementing policies and Health & Safety training can be challenging for a growing business. However, we firmly believe that this investment can pay dividends in the long term. The impact on your time, resources, financial situation and reputation trying to defend, redress or rectify issues once they’ve occurred can far outweigh any upfront investment.
