ERB Monitor 10/2011
Welcome to the second ERB Monitor edition for 2011, the e-newsletter of the Community Sector Employers Forum (CSEF) keeping you informed on essential employment law issues. In this edition we look at some of the important HRM issues of the day which need to be considered by managers.
The first article looks at how employers should react when faced with a claim against them by an employee. It is important for employers to take a measured and considered response when dealing with such claims. This article outlines how this might be done.
The second article looks at the issues of flexibility and re-location. The recession has resulted in some organisations being taken over, merged or having to move premises in an effort to reduce costs. This has implications with regard to contracts of employment. This article outlines some of the pitfalls and looks at some cases.
The third article asks the question “Why must employers follow such lengthy HR Procedures?” Many employers find these procedures too lengthy and cumbersome but it is essential that they are followed rigorously if an employer is to be confident that he or she has made a correct decision.
The fourth article examines the issue of sexism in the workplace. This continues to be a big issue in this country and in some cases what starts out as just a bit of humour can wind up at an equality tribunal hearing.
