HR Services for small businesses
At the outset, putting Human Resources procedures in place is often something that small business owners don’t have time to do. But as businesses grow, it is essential to get the employment paperwork in order as it is only a matter of time before someone asks to see your maternity or sickness policy.
Company handbooks, policies and procedures
Our experienced HR and legal advisors will help you, for an affordable fixed fee, to put together a customised company handbook which includes a range of key HR policies and procedures. As standard, it will include a short section on the company values and vision as well as disciplinary, grievance and sickness procedures and maternity and paternity policies. There is also scope for adding in policies that are specific to your business: you may want to include an email and internet use policy, company car policy, flexible or remote working, a lone worker policy or a customer complaints procedure.
Policies alone are not enough. Consistent implementation of policies is essential and the human side of employing staff means that difficulties may well arise. Experienced help is a real benefit for new or small businesses. A typical example would be dealing with employees who are potentially disabled or those that are off work due to long term sickness absence.
Employment contracts and employment law advice
Our HR and legal team, including experienced lawyers, can also help you with employment legal advice, making sure that your contracts of employment are up to date and that you avoid the many potnetial pitfalls in employment law. Many employers do not realise that they can be found to have acted unlawfully even when they try to be scupulously fair - knowing the correct procedure to follow is essential to avoid employment disputes and tribunals.
If you face a difficult employment law situation, our fixed fee HR hotline is on hand to help you make sure you don’t get it wrong in terms of employment law.
