Waterfront Employment Solicitors have launched a short video online for legal tips on recruiting employees for the first time
Employment Solicitor Anthony Purvis, one of the newest Waterfront employment solicitors, presents the five-minute long video to employers recruiting for the first time.
The video discusses the advertising process, recruiting process and managing new employees correctly and officially to ensure first time recruiters get it right form the beginning.
The first quarter of 2013 has seen a 36 percent increase in employment claims compared to the same time period last year according to The Ministry of Justice employment tribunal figures.
Anthony Purvis said, “It’s often a very exciting time for new businesses, when they are considering recruiting their first employees. But you can be at risk of a claim, if things go wrong. Fortunately, if you follow some simple steps you can avoid the time and expense of going to court and concentrate on growing your business.”
The video also discusses the importance of having a written contract and staff handbook for new employees and aims to provide a basic guide to proactively manage employees and advice on dismissal.
It is one of a number of videos Waterfront Solicitors has produced offering legal advice to businesses, available on the firms’ YouTube channel.
