Which area of law causes the most sleepless nights? Which aspect of law is the most vexing?
Well, ask any employer and the chances are that they’d tell you it’s employment law.
It’s odd when you think about it because on the face of it it should be simple enough – after all, all it is is an agreement to employ a person to act on your behalf and work for your company. Never the less, it can potentially become a nightmare. For many businesses employment law can understandably be incomprehensible, troublesome and extremely complex: after all it’s in a constant state of flux and can appear, to anyone not closely involved in the area, to change from month to month.
Legislative changes don’t help matters either: they have the potential to completely transform the framework in which employers operate, and that can often mean that minor omissions or breaches of these rules can result in major consequences. That’s why employers need the help and expertise of employment law specialists like Harold Stock & Co.
