Business owners often feel quite hard done by when dealing with employment law. In the current climate there is a feeling that ‘all this red tape’ inhibits business and reduces profitability. You might feel you are much too busy.. You are going to take care of this later, when you have the time.
Time passes and it gets increasingly difficult to introduce the subject of agreements as long-standing relationships begin to drift. There are tensions and stresses that make it harder than ever to talk about who is entitled to what and who needs to do what, but still you hope it will sort itself out.
You have associates with no agreement, employees with no agreements. Those agreements you do have bear no resemblance to what is really going on or what you need.
Your people know more about their rights than you do about yours.
Are you already in conflict with someone? Do you have that uneasy sense you should have sorted it all out earlier and now it is too late?
You are like someone who leaves the house with all the windows open. It is true that no-one should be burgled . But you are inviting trouble if you don’t close your windows.
We can help you put your house in order and still let everyone you want to come into the heart of your business – not through the window, but through the front door where you can lay out a welcome mat if you want to and be there to greet them.
Make a list of the last five things that went wrong between you and people who work for you (or a misunderstanding) and send the list to us. Let’s have that conversation about how to make your life easier, and your house more secure.
We founded Irenicon in 1980 to help employers make employment law work for them. We were always a mixed disciplinary practice – something quite revolutionary at the time. Over the years we have worked with some wonderful organisations, pushing the boundaries of how employment law can really be made to work without restricting the flow of the organisation.
