Human rights

Bar Huberman Editor's message: Be aware of the impact of the European Convention on Human Rights on your relationship with your workers. The rights and freedoms in the Convention that are likely to have the most impact on that relationship include: the right to a fair and public hearing; the right to respect for private and family life; freedom of thought, conscience and religion; and freedom of expression.

It is important to consider such rights and freedoms when you are, for example, drawing up a dress code, contemplating carrying out a physical search of an employee or responding to an employee's request to be accompanied by a lawyer at a disciplinary hearing.
