The Cost of getting it wrong

Early intervention with Construction HR Support greatly reduces the cost of getting it wrong and limits the risk of contentious resignations and grievances.  Spectra HR will ensure your processes are legally compliant and reduce the risk of a tribunal claim.  In 2022/23 the average award for unfair dismissal was £11,914 and £45,425 for disability discrimination.  In addition, failing to follow due process has the potential to see an award being uplifted by up to 25%.
