Advice for employers

Recruitment, contracts and policies

Do you know how to conduct a recruitment process that is fair and non-discriminatory?  Do you have up-to-date employment contracts and policies that protect your business?

We can review and update your recruitment practices and procedures and draft the necessary contracts and policies, in order to ensure that your employment relationships get off on the right foot.

Managing employment issues

Experience tells us that too many employers leave their employment law problems to fester and grow, rather than dealing with them when they first arise.  All too often, this results in disgruntled employees and bigger, more difficult problems.  We can work with you to give you the confidence to deal with these issues at an early stage, minimising the risks to your business and avoiding wasted management time.

We have experience of dealing with a wide range of employment and HR issues, including:

  • Grievances
  • Disciplinary procedures
  • Absence management
  • Performance management
  • Business reorganisations
  • Whistleblowing
  • Discrimination and harassment
  • Breach of confidentiality and non-competition provisions

Dismissals

The considerable risks associated with dismissing employees are well known.  Ensuring that you identify the correct reason for dismissal and implement the right dismissal process is crucial.  If you are considering dismissing a member of staff, let us help you get things right.  We can advise you on the best approach to adopt and guide you through the process, every step of the way.
