Contracts and Policies
We can prepare bespoke contracts of employment and employee handbooks for use in your business, or we can update your existing documents to make sure they’re legally compliant and that they’re working for you.
We can advise and support in changing the terms of your contracts. For example, if you need to make changes to an individual’s terms by changing their role or hours, or if you need to change all staff terms by amending your payments and benefits policies. Where disputes arise over contractual terms, we can help you to negotiate and resolve them.
We can help with the day to day management of staff, including advising on and/or conducting employee relationship issues such as disciplinary procedures, absence and performance management, and grievance procedures. We deliver tailored support that reflects our client needs, whether that is a steer in the right direction or making onsite visits to conduct procedures with or for managers.
We will work with your management team to develop your HR strategy, including planning and implementing HR initiatives, such as programmes for employee engagement and well-being. We can also give guidance and support into large scale changes such as re-structuring teams, helping with re-design of job roles and reporting lines and providing hands-on support in connection with redundancy programmes.
We are specialists in workplace mediation and work with management teams to investigate and resolve grievances in the workplace.
Where a dispute cannot be resolved, we can provide support on how to deal with that from disciplinary procedures to protected conversations and settlement discussions.
We understand that sometimes a change in direction is needed for the good of a business and that can mean difficult conversations at senior leadership level. We can bring neutrality to those discussions and assist with achieving the best outcome possible for you.
