The attached document (available to download as a ,pdf below) was created for the use of our UKV managers. We recognise how easy it is to stumble into the pitfalls when dealing with matters of even basic Employment law. We try to give our people the tools to do their job. Whilst, they may have undergone courses or even classroom styled training in a range of general subjects useful for their work, it certainly has helped over the years to have a handbook available to check the finer Employment rules or to help make a decision to the benefit of our colleague and the company.
Our current handbook is entitled:
“A guide for Managers and other Employees of UKV Solutions Ltd”
Winter 2012 and the introduction (below) should be read and understood by the reader to indicate the purpose of this handbook.

The employment relationship is governed by both contractual and statutory rights. The focus of this briefing note is on statutory employment rights but a summary of these two sources of rights is set out below:
These notes are intended merely to provide a summary of the law in this area and are NOT a comprehensive guide. They are NOT intended to provide advice for individual cases upon which specific advice should be taken.”
