Employment law for business
People are the centre of any business, which is why it is important to get it right when it comes to HR and employment issues. Moreover, with the abolishment of employment tribunal fees, employers must be prepared and ensure they remain compliant and fair at all times. We can help your business, whether you are facing an issue with an employee, or are simply seeking guidance on the legal issues involved in employment and HR. Our approachable team are on hand to provide advice that is proactive and tailored to your business’ requirements.
Employment contracts & policies
Employment contracts make a big difference! They are the “building block” of the employment relationship. For your most junior employees you could probably just provide a statement of particulars. However we would recommend a standard contract even for the most junior employee: there are protections built in which are key to good, long-term employment relationships. For senior employees and directors, it is important to have a properly drafted contract or service agreement. Generally speaking, most employers will also want the protection provided by lawyer-drafted restrictive covenants, sometimes known as a non-compete clause.
We offer a wide range of policies and procedures. Take a look through the list. Employers are required by law to have a disciplinary and grievance procedure, but we recommend that most employers, even with a small number of staff you should have between 10 – 20 policies in place. We can help you draft these quickly and conveniently.
