Judith Fiddler, managing director of DLP says: “We want to effect change in the way businesses understand and interpret Government employment legislation. The businesses we work with recognise they must comply with legislation but find it too complex to follow and understand. We know this is a real problem for many businesses and can result in serious repercussions if ignored.”
Taking DLP’s advice from consultation, the ambiguity and potential for misinterpretation of employment processes and procedures has now been changed. Relating to a particular document titled: ‘HELP FOR SMALL FIRMS; Managing performance and behaviour from investigation to possible dismissal’; ambiguity around unfair dismissal and continuity of work has now been re-written.
Judith continues: “This is an absolute milestone and a great example of Government listening and working with people actually on the ground, in business. Our work will improve how the unfair dismissal claims process is understood and implemented and hopefully limit those instances where companies have had to close their doors due to hefty fines.
“Our work will continue to ensure access to and communication of employment law legislation covers everything, from recruitment to redundancies, in a manner that really informs business and helps them grow.”
