What’s the one area of law that has the potential to cause the biggest headaches?
Well, in Harold Stock’s experience it has to be employment law.
Most people would agree that employment Law can be incomprehensible and extremely complex. It’s in a constant state of flux and the rules and regulations can appear, to anyone who is not closely involved in the area, to be constantly changing. It’s hardly surprising that the majority of employers find this area of law particularly troublesome. Legislative changes and case law have the potential to completely transform the framework in which employers operate, whilst minor omissions or breaches of the rules can result in major consequences. The complexity of this legal discipline means that employers will definitely need the help and expertise of employment law specialists like Harold Stock & Co.
