Employers pick up legal tips

A Telford law firm has been praised for its informative and topical approach to delivering employment law advice to local companies.

The experts from Martin-Kaye Solicitors in Telford held their latest Top 10 Employment Blunders seminar at their offices in Euston Way, welcoming more than 20 employers.

Hosted by the company’s Employment Law specialist, John
Mehtam, the event was open to employers from a wide range of businesses, and the response has been extremely positive.

John shared his advice for employers about how to tackle some of the most common workplace and HR issues and, more importantly, how to avoid them and protect your business.

“We were very pleased with the response from our delegates who were full of praise for the way we delivered the presentation, and for the knowledge and expertise that we shared. At Martin-Kaye, we’re committed to delivering effective and appropriate advice that really does make a difference to local employers, and our short sharp lunchtime seminars are designed to get right to the point.

“We set the record straight and help employers to learn from the mistakes others have made, helping them to tackle employment law issues in the right way and helping them to understand how to avoid falling into the most common traps.”

John said keeping up-to-date with ever-changing legislation was practically impossible for employers who were already battling with a packed schedule.

“That’s why our seminars are proving so popular as we deliver clear, concise information in a time frame that suits our delegates.”

The seminar covered a variety of tricky areas including sickness absence, dismissals and poor employee performance.

The Martin-Kaye Employment Law team are now planning future seminars including joint events with other professional services companies across the Midlands.
