We asked the 186 Oxfordshire-based HR professionals and employers who attended Allen Associates’ HR Hub in December to answer a few multiple-choice questions as part of an Employment Law Update being delivered by lawyers from RWK Goodman in Oxford.

Read the results of our HR poll below and find out what they had to say about their plans for reviewing contracts and policies in 2024, whether they employ part year or irregular hours workers, have had to deal with “heat of the moment” resignations, and understand what is meant by “reasonableness” in a redundancy process.

We hope you’ll find these results useful for benchmarking purposes – and will refer to RWK Goodman’s in-depth Employment Law Update for more detailed information and commentary.
