Legal Alert is a monthly checklist from Atom Content Marketing highlighting new and pending laws, regulations, codes of practice and rulings that could have an impact on your business.

The EHRC's The Equality Act: Guidance for Small Business summarises, in three parts, when and how equality law applies to smaller businesses and what they can do to comply with the law. It includes definitions of legal terms and gives practical advice on how to stay within the law when recruiting and promoting employees, reduce costs, retain and attract the best staff and improve productivity and performance.

The second guidance Business and human rights: how human rights can add value to your business explains how smaller businesses can identify human rights issues that they could face, and what to do about them.
