When many of us think about companies that have made big HR mistakes, we’re quick to jump to the assumption that it’s all the fault of greedy bosses who are more interested in lining their own pockets than doing the right thing by their loyal employees.
Mistakes with administrative processes that result in employees receiving their wages far later than expected.
Employees forced to give up their holiday entitlement because of a last-minute crisis.
Disgruntled employees who are vocal about their negative experiences at work.
The list goes on and there’s no smoke without fire right?
Employment legislation exists for a reason, and for the greater good. As an employer, you have a responsibility to make sure that you’re compliant and you’re implementing the best working practices to create an environment that’s fair and nurturing for your employees.
However, mistakes can happen, and even the most dedicated and ethical employers can find themselves facing extremely difficult circumstances.
When your business is growing fast, and you have a million and one things to balance, you can take your eye off the ball. You can overlook important details. And you can find yourself facing circumstances that you never imagined, but which can put your entire business in jeopardy.
