McPartland Solicitors discuss employment law, what it covers and how solicitors can provide assistance in employment related issues.

Employment Law: What You Need To Know

What is Employment Law?

Employment Law is a broad area of law which oversees all matters relating to the workplace. Hence, these complex and ever-changing laws govern the relationship between employers and employees. They also protect workers in circumstances where they feel that they have been unfairly treated in the workplace. Due to this, it is vital that employers take these laws into consideration and comply with them.

What Does Employment Law Cover?

Employment law covers all work-related issues, from hiring new workers right through to the termination of employment, voluntary or forced. This means it can include situations such as the recruitment process, organisation restructuring and litigation. By complying with the legislation, employers and their staff members can ensure their workplace and processes are fair for every individual.

Where Can I Find Up-to-Date Information about Employment Law?

As the legislations are constantly updating, it is important for employers and employees to keep up-to-date with all aspects of employment law. Additionally, there is a wealth of information available regarding the law with organisations such as the Labour Relations Agency and NI Business Info.  These companies provide valuable information for both employers and workers.
