Employment Law Compliance
Keeping up with the new employment legislation
Burgh House has over sixty years’ combined experience of compliance with employment law, including UK law on which the new St. Helena legislation will be based. We can therefore provide support to businesses and other organisations in complying with the new Employment Laws, as and when they are introduced.
To learn more about Employment Law Compliance see below.
For an initial (free) discussion of your needs and how we can help please contact us.
The St. Helena Government has indicated that it intends to bring in new legislation to regulate the terms and conditions under which people are employed by businesses and other organisations in St. Helena.
Subjects expected to be covered include:
A minimum wage
Paid holiday and rest breaks, and limits on night work
Maternity and paternity pay
The right not to be unfairly dismissed
Protection from unauthorised deductions from pay
The right to belong or not to belong to a trade union or staff association
Although SHG’s plan is to move cautiously, employers can expect changes to begin soon.
When each new piece of legislation is passed, employers are expected to be given a period of time in which to comply, with penalties for those that fail to do so within the allotted period. It is therefore imperative that employers:
Keep aware of legislation developments and the plans for their introduction
As each piece of legislation is being discussed, consider the impact it would have on their operations
As soon as each piece of legislation is passed, and within the period permitted for compliance, check that all its staff policies are in compliance with the new requirements, introducing changes as necessary
This activity could be a distraction to management, which is already fully occupied with running and growing the business.
Burgh House can help. As each new piece of legislation is being discussed we will review it and identify its potential impacts on employers. We can then work with your personnel function (however large or small that may be) to identify the issues raised and help you resolve them as quickly as possible.
If you want to know more, please contact us for an initial discussion. We will meet with you and discuss your requirements and how we would go about meeting them. This initial meeting is free, and at the end we will write to you to explain how we can help you and what it would cost. If you decide not to proceed you pay nothing; but we are confident that you will see the benefits of working with Burgh House.
