I think any business owner, if being honest, would say at some point they have experienced some tricky HR issues during their career.
However, in an ideal world, we’d never have to worry about “people” issues, as we’d have engaged employees who are passionate about helping the business reach its full potential. I did say in an ideal world and as a realist I know that things don’t have a tendency to work out that way.
Below are listed 3 steps that will help you take control if you have found yourself with a complex and confusing employee issue and need to be focused on finding a solution.
- Use Employment law
Employment legislation exists for a reason. It is there to protect employees and businesses and ensure that standards are upheld. If you are handling an HR issue it is imperative that the first thing you do is to consider your legal obligations and responsibilities.
- HR guidance
Sometimes, knowing the law is not enough, especially if you are dealing with a particularly complex or sensitive issue. You may need extra help and support to make sure that concerns are dealt with correctly and within a specific time-frame.

- Don’t repeat the same mistakes
Ok so you’ve handled your HR issue and come out the other side breathing a sigh of relief and its back to business.
