Your legal responsibilities as an employer

Employment law is evolving all the time and we streamline detailed regulations and new legal requirements into actions adapted to your business. We enable you to meet your legal responsibilities as an employer without a complicated hassle, so you keep your good reputation by staying out of the employment tribunal and save you valuable time researching boring processes

Avoiding employment tribunals

We help you formulate best practices for your company culture and day-to-day working arrangements. These are essential to ensure you’re constantly making big progress when it comes to business goals and growth.

If your people policies go wrong – or don’t exist! – ultimately your business is likely to face legal action from employees or ex-employees. This is a daunting occasion for any business, costly and reputation-damaging

Heading off issues from arising in the first place is the best way to avoid it happening. We provide you with pragmatic advice on how to do this and if disputes do arise, a qualified workplace mediator. We help you formulate best practices for your company culture and day-to-day working arrangements. These are essential to ensure you’re constantly making big progress when it comes to business goals and growth.

Your Employee Handbook

We write your employee handbook containing your people policies so that everyone is clear about the rules that matter and understands where the boundaries are set, all tailored to your company culture. Your staff handbook will contain your written policies such as equal opportunities and internal complaints procedures, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be written like a complex impersonal legal document. Its most important purpose is to communicate clearly with employees, so we make sure it’s clear to everyone.

Contracts of Employment

Advising on options and agreeing on your basic employment practices, we write templates for contracts of employment which are tailored to your business. These straightforward templates will allow you to be self-sufficient in future but, if required, we will also produce individual terms of employment for you.

Employing for the First Time

If you’re employing someone for the first time, we guide you through the key steps to take beforehand, such as checking their right to work in the UK, plus other legal requirements you must comply with once the new employee starts.

Free consultation
