Employment Law Expert

When in need of advice on workforce matters, you want to speak to someone who really knows what they’re talking about – you need an Employment Law expert. This is especially true when dealing with complex employee relations issues, where the scope for legal risk is higher.

What does an employment law expert do?

An employment law expert can support your organisation in the same way an in-house legal adviser would. They will get to know you, how you operate and the specific challenges you face so they can provide tailored, pragmatic advice with your best interests in mind.

They will foster an ongoing relationship with key members of the team and keep you informed of any employment law changes that may affect how you operate. A good employment law expert will turn complex legislation into clear, practical advice, providing step-by step guidance through any employment obstacles you encounter, highlighting any potential pitfalls and helping you to avoid them.


The difference an employment law expert can make

From poor performance to misconduct issues, no organisation is immune to people problems. However, in many cases, employers simply aren’t sure about the correct process to follow, don’t understand the legal position, or simply don’t have the time to give these issues the attention they deserve. In truth, if you’re not an expert in employment law, the potential for missteps is significant, and situations can drag on for longer than is necessary.

According to estimates, 25% of organisations struggle to understand employment law. Without expert guidance, employers are at risk of falling foul of complicated employment regulations, which can lead to expensive disputes and legal challenges.

In the worst case scenario, missteps can lead to an Employment Tribunal claim. Unfortunately for employers, now that Tribunal fees have been scrapped, there’s nothing to stop litigious employees pursuing legal action. With the average award for unfair dismissal sitting at almost £14,000 and discrimination claims costing closer to £30,000, the cost of going it alone can be significant. Of course, as well as the impact on your bottom line, there’s also reputational damage to consider.
