DC Kaye & Co Solicitors provides crucial advice for employers who are in the process of recruitment.
The Equality Act 2010 came into force on 1st October 2010 and has meant that Employers may need to make significant changes to their recruitment and selection procedures to ensure that they are using a fair selection procedure and to avoid potential discrimination claims. For example, the Equality Act 2010 has brought in new rules which limit the amount of pre-employment health questions and checks that an Employer is allowed to ask of a prospective employee. Employers are likely to need to review their absence and grievance and disciplinary procedures to accommodate the new rules and provide necessary training of their managers and staff to promote equality in the workplace.
DC Kaye Solicitors can provide succinct and straightforward advice for Employers to understand, implement and follow these procedures and to ensure that there is a framework in place to deal with any grievances or concerns that may arise under the new law. This will help to promote efficiency and reduce the risk of costly and time consuming claims being made against the Employer who is responsible for both their own actions and the actions of their employees.
