What is employment law and how can it help me?
Employment law makes sure the rights of both employees and employers are protected and the relationship between them is fair.
Employment law includes a range of legislation such as the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, the Employment Rights Act 1996, the Equality Act 2010 and the Employment & Labour Laws and Regulations 2021. Legislation covers discrimination, dismissal, disciplinary procedures, grievance procedures, health and safety, holidays, maternity and paternity leave, notice periods, pay, employment contracts and more.
Legislation sets out the duties, which employers have towards employees to make sure they are safe and working in conditions that are conducive to productivity. There is a duty of mutual trust and confidence which exists between them and through legislation employers and employees share the same set of expectations which supports a harmonious working relationship and a shared vision.
