General Election 2015The campaigns for this year’s general election have officially begun, but what will the outcome mean for HR?

Labour are trying to connect with the “ordinary” people, focusing on employment issues and promising legislation to increase vocational education and apprenticeships.

The Tories say they will cut tax if they are re-elected, as well as reminding voters of the reductions they have achieved in the deficit during their time in office.

Both parties have promised the end of  zero hours contracts, which will have a huge impact on employment throughout the country.

Maybe neither of these get your vote and you think HR will benefit from more seats for the Lib Dems or Ukip.
