We moved our legal support to WorkNest (formerly Law at Work) having previously used a time and line law firm. It was important, though, that an all-inclusive fee structure did not come at the expense of quality. Thankfully we’ve been delighted with the service we’ve received from WorkNest.”

As an employer, it’s only natural that you’ll find yourself having a better working relationship with some employees than others. However, when favouritism occurs it can seriously damage your reputation, or even lead to a tribunal. From offering certain employees more perks, to being particularly lenient, while not always illegal, favouritism is always unwise.
While an employee withdrawing a grievance they submitted might seem like a full resolution has occurred, this is rarely the case. It’s important to understand why they have withdrawn the grievance and reassure them that the grievance has been taken seriously. Grievances are often very difficult to deal with, so it is often best to seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity.
While you may want to consider an employee’s previous absence record during the hiring process, the law is very strict on asking health or disability questions during recruitment. Generally, asking these kinds of questions, or even how many sick days the applicant took in their previous role is not permissible. If you make an unconditional offer and withdraw it due to the applicant’s sickness record you will be in breach of contact and the applicant may be eligible to damages or compensation.
