Employment law is vast and ever changing. As a business owner, it can be hard to keep on top of the law. With the raft of rights available to employees and the constant need to follow the correct procedure we understand why it’s hard to see the wood for the trees.
That’s why we provide regular training and seminars on all areas of employment law. We can also provide in-house training tailored to the needs of your staff and management. Give us a call to find out more or to discuss your business’ training needs.
Need a quick fix? Why not sign up for our employment newsletter for a monthly digest of the latest cases or check out our blog here. We keep you updated so you don’t have to.

Been on one of our training courses or seminars? We love to receive feedback on our training so that we can continually improve our service. It won’t take long – we promise! You can provide feedback by clicking on this link.
In the case of Harvey v Vista Hotels Limited, Mr Harvey, the former Head Chef of Fermain Valley Hotel was dismissed by his employer following an incident resulting in him serving an 18 month prison sentence for biting and spitting blood at police officers. In an arguably surprising decision by the Employment Tribunal, Vista Hotels Limited was ordered to pay Mr Harvey the sum of £11,000 in damages for loss of earnings for failing to follow fair procedure.
A survey by Sealy UK has found that more than one in five workers has called in sick following a bad night’s sleep. One in ten workers has admitted to nodding off at work whilst 12% have taken themselves off somewhere at work for a power nap. Research suggests that power naps are effective in increasing memory and alertness but generally, sleeping on the job is regarded as an act of misconduct and can land employees in hot water. Individuals are more likely to take a day off, commonly known as a “sickie”, rather than have a snooze at work.
