The relationship between employer and employee gives rise to important rights and duties on both sides. The employer will regard staff as an important business asset; the employed will look to be treated fairly in all aspects of his or her life and work. Between these two objectives problems can arise. The law in the area is becoming increasingly complex, particularly given the effect of EU directives and issues surrounding working hours, Health and Safety at work, and sexual and disability discrimination.

In many cases problems are avoided by the proper use of a regime of employment contracts and disciplinary and grievance procedure and by timely consultation between the business and its staff.
