The arbitration and conciliation service ACAS produce a series of fact sheets designed to keep small businesses up to speed on employment law, and are continually updated. The fact sheets cover the law related to the payment of employees, communicating with them over matters such as discipline and redundancy, controlling labour turnover, and holding personnel records. The latest editions outline good practice and point to problem areas, and should be particularly valuable for businesses which do not have the benefit of the advice of a specialised human resources department. The fact sheets are available, free from ACAS Reader Ltd 01455 852225.
