Employment Tribunals Claims up 90%

No matter how big or small, advice is on hand with CODE HR and Employment Law service

Since tribunal fees were abolished last year there has been a dramatic increase in employment tribunal claims. In small businesses like dental practices, it can often be the case that your practice manager is also your HR manager, compliance manager, and possibly also your principal dentist. Sound familiar?

It’s no secret that managing your own business often requires you to wear many different hats, but what if there was a simple solution that could help ease some of the pressure?

Managing HR and employment law are an essential and challenging part of running every dental practice large or small. Employment law and ACAS guidelines are complex, and without the benefit of a qualified HR manager they can become a minefield.

If an issue does arise and you don’t closely follow guidelines and employment law it can be costly and time consuming. It’s not just the legal fees or employment tribunal settlement that costs, it’s your time and focus taken away from running the practice and treating patients plus the stress of dealing with a dispute.
