Employers - is your business at risk by failing to comply with UK employment laws?

The last decade or so has seen massive increases in both employee rights and awareness by staff of those rights. Employees who believe their rights have been denied or infringed can make a claim to an Employment Tribunal, but recent research has indicated that before that stage is reached thousands of management hours valued at billions of pounds are lost to the UK economy each year due to workplace disputes.
One of the biggest misconceptions among employers is that because they have only a small business or have only a few employees they need pay little attention to these issues. In reality most employment legislation applies to ALL employers.
