What employment regulations do SMEs need to know?
Business Owners and Employers carry many responsibilities, but perhaps nowhere greater than in the area of Human Resources Compliance. This is a highly regulated and litigative field, and anything less than what is considered Best Practice can result in loss, disruption and legal cases being taken against the Company.
Typically, smaller businesses can’t afford dedicated HR teams and are therefore reliant on matching whatever level of internal expertise exists with occasional ad hoc professional services provided by outside consultants. But most importantly, smaller businesses can’t afford expensive, time-consuming legal problems through failure to comply with legislation.
