Employment lawyers share their advice

Employers in the Worcester area are set to find out how to protect their business from escalating tribunal claims thanks to a Telford law firm.

Experts from the employment law team at Martin-Kaye Solicitors will be hosting an interactive seminar on July 25, at the Sixways Stadium in Warriors Way, Worcester, at 12noon.

The free event will help employers to recognise the top ten employment law blunders that companies commit, and identify the best way to avoid them.

John Mehtam, who is Martin-Kaye’s employment law specialist, will lead the seminar and it’s the first time the team have taken their presentation to the Worcester area.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming employers from a wide range of business sectors, and it’s a good time for businesses to attend because since the Government abolished tribunal fees, there has been an avalanche of employment tribunal claims. This is because 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.

“Our presentations are always extremely popular wherever we hold them across Shropshire, Wales and the wider West Midlands, and it’s great to now be taking our advice into the Worcester area to reach even more businesses.”
