Every business is different and therefore the policies and procedures differ. Your company needs to consider the recruitment policy as well as the equal opportunities policy.

Further, you need to consider the Health and Safety of your workforce, disciplinary and grievance procedures. Depending on the type of business, you may wish to consider flexible working, training and development, social media and email policies.

Our experts can advise you on what policies are required and should be implemented.

If you have dismissed someone and they have claimed that it is unfair dismissal, then you should contact your HR team and our employment experts. You should keep and collect all the evidence surrounding the dismissal. Keep detailed notes and ensure that you have followed the company’s disciplinary procedure. There are time limits to any claim brought against you.
