We’ll make sure you stay on the right side of the law and protect your business from claims. So you can get on with recruiting the right people for your business.
When recruiting, you’re looking to make a valuable investment in your business. But recruitment is an area which can leave employers exposed to unexpected costs, often unwittingly, from a wide range of legal issues.
From the wording of job adverts and application forms through to shortlisting and decision making, your actions can be challenged by individuals who you’ve never met, let alone employed.
How do you avoid allegations of direct or indirect discrimination? When can you ask questions about health? Can you ask about criminal convictions and insist on CRB checks? How do Data Protection laws apply? How do you establish the legal right to work in the UK? And, when you’ve found the right candidate, there may be conditions to your job offer – at what point is a legal contract formed?
Our employment team has extensive experience in all of these areas. Get in touch with us today to see how we can protect your business.
