The majority of employers deal with their employees fairly. Nonetheless, tribunals are often unable to determine "fair" treatment due to the lack of an "audit trail" which records the opportunities and warnings an employee has received prior to their dismissal or resignation. Our service is designed to help managers deal with employees in a way that is not only fair but seen to be fair.
