The complexity of employment law legislation often leaves employers and employees feeling uncertain and vulnerable in almost every aspect of the relationship. J. Broome & Associates Employment Consulting can provide expert on-site consultancy support and advice on a wide range of employment law issues. Just a few of the areas we cover are:
Employment law primarily exists to govern the employee-employer relationship – to protect the rights of employees; to ensure they are treated fairly and to protect the interest of the employer. We represent both parties, as long as a conflict of interest does not exist.
Labour law, while used interchangeably with employment law is slightly different because this relationship is tripartite, i.e., it also includes the involvement of trade unions. This relationship, referred to as industrial relations or employment relations is extremely difficult to manage and is a legal minefield. Due to the fact that employers are at a disadvantage in this area, there is an added focus to protect employers. As a result, we only represent employers on labour law and industrial relations issues.
Human Resource Management
Human Resources Management (HRM) is the strategic management of the employees, who individually and collectively contribute to the achievement of the strategic objectives of the organisation. Successful companies are those that consider their human capital as their most important asset, so as a result, an organisation cannot build a good team of working professionals without good Human Resources. The key functions of the HRM team include recruiting people, training them, performance appraisals, motivating employees as well as workplace communication, workplace safety, and much more.
