Over the past fifteen years or so I have been advising a number of these small businesses on how to deal with people management issues, and this book is aimed principally at this market.
Although it has an eye on employment law all the way through, it is not a book on mere compliance. It is a belt-and-braces guide to managing people. I've left the motivational books to others and worked on the principle that, while business owners and managers realise they have to do more than just set people loose in the workplace and hope for the best, it is not at the top of their work-list - until something goes wrong - and what they want is something that clearly sets out the need-to-knows.
So there are just 5 Golden Rules, all in one place, in an easy-to-read style - readers can then move on to more formal books if they want to. At a minimum it should show business owners and managers what dangers are lurking so they can dodge 'em, but I also expect it to give them confidence in dealing with their people.

About the Author
I've also been a professional actress, the co-owner of a small restaurant (never again), an antiquarian printseller, an operations manager, a co-ordinator of professional development seminars, a company director (twice) and a temp shorthand-typist for literally hundreds of companies (this last was during my acting years, so you can guess at the ratio of temping to acting) ... there's more, but that's probably as much as you can cope with for now.
Oh - and as I said, I'm not a lawyer, but I do have an MA in Human Resource Management.
