Beyond any other investment your business may make, the staff you choose to recruit is often the key to unlocking its success.
But recruitment can be fraught with issues. We often find that employers are unsure as to what they can and cannot do as regards staff selection.
If a candidate believes that you have acted unfairly, then they may look to bring a claim against you even though they were never employed. A failure to comply with relevant legislation, not least equality legislation may therefore reflect poorly on your business, affecting you both financially and in terms of your reputation. This could affect your ability to recruit the best candidates for your business.
Our Employment Law team at Butcher & Barlow understand the difficulties you may face. We can provide you with recruitment support to ensure compliance with all relevant legislation both procedurally and with the documentation you use.
