If a relationship between an employer and employee breaks down, problems begin to occur. Any potential becomes temporarily stagnated. Frequent and sometimes inconvenient challenges are made by employees to the employer on ways of doing things or meeting targets or ensuring timescales are met.

On the horizons one begins to visualise, trade unions, lawyers and employment tribunals and mountains of financial costs as well as lost revenue and productivity.
