Employment Law Compliance and Legal Support – retained service for employers
Our retained service package for employers enables business owners and managers to know they are complying with employment law and have all the right documents, such as contracts of employment, and that they have access to a named employment law solicitor for advice and support with employee and workplace problems. For a fixed annual fee, we will:
- Review existing employment contracts, policies and procedures and either redraft and update them, or draft a completely new set to your instructions, if necessary. After that, the documents will be updated as required by a solicitor.
- Provide access to a named solicitor for legal advice and support with employee problems, such as disciplinary action or performance review, settling a grievance, or tackling excess absence from work or poor timekeeping, or any other similar workplace issues, by telephone and email, or a visit to your premises if required.
- Write letters to your employees for you in connection with disciplinary or grievance or performance review procedures, or other issues.
We can also arrange a policy of insurance to protect you from the legal costs and awards of compensation of certain Employment Tribunal claims.
