Lawyers branch out with employment advice

Employment law experts from a Shropshire legal practice are taking their advice on the road to reach businesses in the wider Midlands.

The lawyers from Martin-Kaye Solicitors, in Telford, will be hosting an interactive employment advice seminar that will see them share invaluable information to help company bosses protect their business from escalating employment tribunal claims.

The Top 10 Blunders seminar will take place at the Village Hotel Walsall, Tempus Ten, on Thursday, February 28, at 12noon, and the free event will be hosted by the firm’s employment law specialist, John Mehtam.

“Our presentations are always extremely popular wherever we hold them, and now we’re branching out into the wider Midlands to give local companies an opportunity to find out just how we may be able to help them.

“We are seeing an avalanche of employment tribunal claims since the Government abolished the fees that employees needed to pay to bring a claim. And because there is no fee to pay to lodge a claim, it’s clear that some employees are bringing claims that stand little chance of succeeding, but employers have to take them all seriously and you need to be sure you’re complying with all the relevant legislation.”

Mr Mehtam said he would be sharing his advice to help businesses navigate through the increasingly-complicated minefield of employment law, and to help them avoid the most common pitfalls.

“We will include suggestions on how to tackle some of the most common workplace and HR issues including sickness absence, dismissals and poor employee performance – and perhaps more importantly, we will look at how to avoid these situations and how to protect your business.

“With employers short on time, it’s almost impossible to keep up-to-date with ever-changing legislation, so our seminars offer clear, concise information in a time frame that suits our busy delegates.”

Businesses who would like to attend the seminar should contact June Noto on 01952 525951 or email junenoto@martinkaye.co.uk
