Employee Relations

Employment Relationship

Employment is an undertaking by an employee to provide skill and effort to the employer in return for which the employer provides the employee with a salary or a wage. The employer’s obligations also include the duty to provide a safe workplace, to act in good faith towards the employee and not to act in such a way as to undermine the trust and confidence of the employment relationship. The employee has corresponding obligations, which include obedience, competence, honesty and loyalty.

The dynamic and often nebulous nature of the employment relationship and the multiplicity of the factors that influence the contract increase the difficulty of managing it.

We have experience in developing a high trust organization which exists when management is honest with people, keeps its word (deliver the deal) and practices what it preaches. Trust is therefore created and maintained by managerial behavior and by the development of better mutual understanding of expectations – employers of employees, and employees of employers.
