This specially commissioned report will show you how to get the best out of your employees, from recruitment to retirement, while protecting yourself and your firm to the full. For a start, you could save yourself a lot of trouble through understanding the law on recruitment. Then, you don't have to accept every doctor's certificate for sickness absence. Again, were you aware that not all duties are suspended when off sick? The report is packed with constructive advice, and ends with seven invaluable Appendices including precedents, model letters and draft company policies.
