Frequently asked questions

Legislation demands that an Employer provides a ‘Safe Work Environment’ free from harassment. Many employers are unaware of necessary protocols and procedures – but ignorance is not considered an excuse. Any ‘allegation’ of bullying will need to be taken very seriously for both the possible Perpetrator and the Victim. When left unaddressed, this situation can lead a victim to the point of depression and even progress to ‘self-harm’, damage to property or abandonment of employment. Practical People Solutions can help you navigate the legislation to not only protect the Employee but also guide Managers and Directors so as to prevent or deal with legal charges.  Care also needs to be taken with any allegation as the claim may not be genuine, or even made out of malice.  Formal records of communications must be completed in order to protect all parties.  Some employers prefer to bring in an independent person outside of company politics who can deliver the highest level of care and experience to defuse a typically highly emotional, sensitive situation.
It may seem impossible to achieve a ‘safe’ termination: a terminated employee will usually have recourse to ‘unfair’ dismissal legislation, regardless of the process you follow. However, an employer can reduce the risk to their business by following a strict process of lawful termination. This involves treating the employee in question with dignity and respect – something that is easier for an independent person to achieve. At Practical People Solutions, we understand that terminating an employee needs to be a very unemotional (but not callous) process, and, again, we are able to defuse what is usually an extremely emotional and sensitive situation.

A. It is easy for an employer to become convinced on scant evidence that an employee is ‘not telling the truth’. While this is not an unusual situation, it is dangerous for an employer to accuse an employee of lying. The best thing to do here is to defuse the situation, discuss the circumstances with a specialist and take action only if conclusive evidence is available.

Choosing the right person is easy when you know what you are looking for. As recruitment specialists, Practical People Solutions follow a simple step by step process to help you to be the best possible employer – so that you can attract the best possible employee. Keeping or retaining your good employees requires understanding their needs and helping them to ‘manage’ their future career path: something we are well versed in. When it comes to attraction and retention, our extensive experience will help you to feel confident that you are doing all the ‘right’ things.
