Employers need to take action

Employers are facing an avalanche of claims following the Government’s decision to abolish tribunal fees – but a Shropshire law firm has the answers company bosses need.

Martin-Kaye Solicitors, in Euston Way, Telford, is hosting an interactive employment advice seminar that will see them share invaluable information to help employers protect their business from escalating claims. The Top 10 Blunders seminar will take place at Martin-Kaye’s offices on Thursday, July 12, at 12pm, and will be hosted by the firm’s employment law specialist, John Mehtam.

“Our presentations are always extremely popular wherever we hold them across Shropshire, Wales and the wider West Midlands, and this event is an opportunity for local companies to find out just how valuable the right advice can be. Statistically the number of claims now being lodged through employment tribunals is increasing at an unprecedented rate – in fact there has been a 500% rise since the fees that employees needed to pay to bring a claim were abolished.

“And with the avalanche of claims we’re seeing, 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."

Businesses who would like to attend the seminar should contact Maria Smallcombe on 01952 272222 or email mariasmallcombe@martinkaye.co.uk
