Employment law

  • You are recruiting new staff: what should a contract of employment look like?
  • You want to treat your staff in a fair manner: how should you calculate overtime and what are the statutory limits?
  • You want to be equipped for all eventualities: how should employers and employees conduct themselves in the event of illness or accident?
  • You have to dismiss someone: when can a contract of employment be terminated? What should be included in letters of reference?
