Many managers are expected to deal with employee related matters and have not received any training from their employer. This could increase the a risk to your business if your managers deal with something outside of the current employment law and ignorance will be no defence in the court room.
If your business falls foul of a legal process your employees could make a claim against your business, which could result in an employment tribunal. If you were to lose, you could be looking at costly compensation pay-outs and damage to your brand and reputation.
The average compensation payments for 2015/ 2016 are detailed below:
- Unfair Dismissal £13,851
- Sex Discrimination £85,622
- Race Discrimination £21,729
- Disability Discrimination £21,729
