If you're running a business in the UK, staying informed on employment law is crucial to prevent any legal issues. All employees are protected by laws that guarantee certain rights such as minimum wage, paid holidays, and sick leave. In addition, employers must provide a safe working atmosphere and refrain from discriminating against staff on the grounds of race, gender or religion.
A few core regulations apply to UK businesses: The Equality Act 2010 that prohibits workplace discrimination; The Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 requiring businesses to implement health and safety measures; and The Working Time Regulations 1998 which sets out maximum work hours, along with minimum holiday pay entitlement.
Employment law is a constantly changing field. Therefore, it's vital for businesses to stay up-to-date with the current trends. Fortunately, there's an abundance of resources available - ranging from government publications to specialist legal advice - that can help employers remain compliant with the law.
