Employment Law Changes A “Mine Field” For Businesses Claims Derby Law Firm

In light of major changes in employment law, an East Midlands based solicitor is warning businesses that failing to comply with these changes, could result in a hefty fine.

With these changes fast approaching, from April 6th employees will have to seek early conciliation prior to making an employment tribunal claim.

The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, which is now an Act of Parliament, will improve dispute resolution through the reform of tribunals and seek to bring harmony to workplace disputes without the need for court action.

Earlier this month, Business Minister, Jo Swinson, said: “The measures in The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act will support the UKs enterprise culture and make it one of the best places to do business. It will ‘encourage parties to come together to settle their disputes before an employment tribunal claim is lodged’”.

Attenborough Law Ltd, niche Employment HR practice, headed by Tina Attenborough, offer an alternative service to the legal action, through mediation, enabling employment disputes to be managed and resolved effectively and without costly fees.

Managing Director, Tina Attenborough said: “This spring sees changes to employment law that will affect every workplace up and down the country, including the extension of the rights to request flexible working to all employees, mandatory early conciliation for tribunal claims and significant changes to TUPE”.

Tina added: “It is imperative that businesses familiarise themselves with these changes. I would like to invite any businesses, unsure of what the new act means for them, to get in touch with us for impartial advice”
