Electronic Wills

Old woman working on laptop computer at homeUp to 40% of adults die each year without a Will. There are various reasons for this, but one main reason is thought to be a direct result of people simply being put off by outdated laws, and the costs involved in making a will. Under these circumstances, it may appear easier for an individual to simply avoid the subject and not make a Will. Unfortunately, this means that if an individual dies without a will, the estate will be distributed under outdated Intestacy laws, under which there is no guarantee that the estate will be distributed in accordance with the deceased’s wishes .The Law Commission has branded the current system “outdated” and is currently considering proposals on how Electronic Wills could reflect the modern age in which we live.

Dealing with employee theft

stature-935639_640From employees fraudulently filling in travel claim forms or time sheets, to stealing company information or expensive equipment, employee theft is a serious offence that needs to be handled properly but with caution. Discovering that an employee has been stealing from you in any capacity can be highly upsetting; however acting in haste can land you in hot water.

It is highly important for an employer to act methodically when dealing with a suspected case of employee theft and have a procedure in place to follow. Acting in haste and terminating someone’s employment without all the facts could lead to a lengthy and expensive unfair dismissal claim and an employment tribunal.
