About HBS Law

HBS Law specialises in a variety of different practices.We are specialists in Employment Law. Year on year, UK employment law continues to extend in all areas of working life. There has been a huge increase in Unfair Dismissal protection under UK employment law, increasing workers' rights in cases of dismissal relating to pregnancy, parental or family leave, trade unions, asserting a statutory right, health & safety, refusing to work on a Sunday, claiming the National Minimum Wage etc. Information from the Association of British Independent Chartered Accountants.

Changes introduced to UK employment law in 2004 required that employers and employees followed laid down guidelines for disciplinary and grievance procedures.

Maternity rights now enshrined under UK employment law have also increased dramatically. Paid maternity leave is now 26 weeks and maternity leave up to 1 year. UK employment law now also provides for paid paternity leave.

The logical options for a business that employs anything from 10 to 200 people are these:-

  • Try and learn sufficient about the legal implications and requirements of managing your employees to enable you to do it yourself without taking your eye off your business and without ending up with an award of compensation from an employment tribunal.
  • Employ one of your employees to train up to the required level of knowledge and put them in charge.
  • Employ an already trained and qualified personnel manager. Can you find one worth his or her salt for less than £30,000 a year?

Use of my services will enable you to access over fifteen years of specialist, practical experience and qualification for as much time as you think may be reasonably required for your business.
