We publish newsletters which contain articles on any significant case law, legislative changes, employment law news in general, HR and Health & Safety. Individual articles can become out of date as the law changes, and archive articles may still be accessible when they no longer summarise the correct legal position or current best practice. Searches show the most recent article first, please check the date of the article you are reading. If in doubt please take advice about your particular situation before taking action. Employers Assistance 0800 15 8000.

All new products or product upgrades are also announced this way. Other services from third parties which we think may be of assistance to employers are also sometimes advertised.
