In the complex landscape of business operations, employment-related challenges can arise unexpectedly, potentially leading to Employment Tribunal claims. As a responsible business owner, you understand the importance of implementing robust employment and HR procedures. However, even with the best preventative measures in place, the spectre of Employment Tribunal claims looms over every organisation. This article sheds light on the reality of facing such claims, the potential personal liabilities involved, and the invaluable role a dedicated legal team can play in safeguarding your business.
