Joe Beeston and Nina Gilroy write for CampdenFB on employment law for family businesses

Employment Counsel, Joe Beeston, and Legal Executive, Nina Gilroy, have authored an article for CampdenFB entitled 'Get the basics right in family business employment law'.

"Family businesses often grow in an unstructured way, leading to a culture of informality. As a result, basic employment law documents can get overlooked and family members are not issued with employment contracts or subject to formal policies. This can leave the business exposed when issues arise as neither the business nor the family member have a ‘rule book’ to follow".

In their article, Joe and Nina explain how to avoid clashing interests and deal with difficult situations, as well as highlighting best practice for future planning.
