If you are an employer, you are often at risk of tribunal claims against you from the offset when advertising or interviewing for job openings. It is a good idea to seek legal advice in these circumstances to ensure your advertisement or interview questions do not cross any lines and could prompt discrimination claims.

It is also important that when a job offer is made, it is put in writing covering all the terms and conditions of the employment. A contract of employment begins from the moment that an unconditional job offer is accepted, even without having agreed all of the terms or even discussing them. Having an uncertain contract of employment can also leave employers vulnerable to employment tribunal cases.

As an employer, if you are not fully conversant in the latest employment law or if you have an issue with one or more of your employees and need the best advice on how to deal with it – we can help.
