Employment Law in Scotland

Most of us will spend a vast majority of our lives in work. It’s therefore important that the employment relationships we form, whether as an employee or employer, run as smoothly as possible. Workplace disputes should also be resolved quickly and effectively, in a way that’s mutually acceptable to everyone involved. And if an employment relationship comes to an end, it’s vital that it is terminated in a way that’s fair to both parties.
