Is having only one decision maker better than having multiple?
Video featuring Helene Lee, Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright
ELM has been fortunate enough to work with Helene on several of our 2016 live events regarding topics surrounding ill and injured employees, performance management and unfair dismissals. In this short video Helene discusses the increase in adverse action claims rather than unfair dismissals, arising from termination of employment.
Helene highlights some key tips for employers who may find themselves in court discussing such issues, including the important point about having one clear decision maker as opposed to multiple.
