At Breens we recognise that all companies have a slightly different approach to employee management. You may operate a full internal human resources team or it may be just you who does it all. At one time or another most businesses seek professional legal advice for an employment issue. In the long run it can save you time and money.

Employment law is a potential minefield for the inexperienced and uninitiated. It is one area of law that is probably seems to you to be in a constant state of flux, often because of the European Community angle. As employees become more aware of their rights and become increasingly prepared to seek legal redress, it is vital that employers stay abreast of developments.

With over 130,000 applications annually by employees to employment tribunals in the UK, and with the upper limits of some awards now raised to more than £50,000 (with some unlimited), employers need to be fully and properly advised about relevant law and procedures.
