Our outsourced HR advice services

Initial consultation

Having measures in place when employing staff is incredibly important to ensure no employment tribunal claims are brought against the business.

Our team can walk you through what the LEAP package entails so you can make a fully informed decision about choosing to work with our solicitors who are experienced in supporting organisations with HR advice.

Over the years, our team have gained considerable experience assisting a variety of clients from small and large businesses to set robust policies and procedures in place. We can confidently say we know what works and what does not and will be able to tailor our plan to suit your business and its requirements

Reviewing your existing employment documents

We can review your existing documents and processes, then provide expert advice about what has been done well and what we recommend changing. You will then know where you need to improve your current policies and procedures so that the business is in full compliance with all relevant employment legislation, helping to mitigate potential risks.

Preparing new contracts or updating and improving your existing contracts

Once we have taken the time to carefully review the current employment documents you already have in place for the business, such as contracts of employment, we will recommend any improvements needed.

This will include helping you to make the crucial decision as to whether it would be in the businesses best interests to prepare entirely new contracts with the help of our outsourced HR support lawyers or to make adjustments to your existing ones.

Our solicitors have a broad scope of employment law knowledge and have years of combined expertise advising employers on what to include in contracts of employment. We know precisely what works and what does not and will always consider the relevant legislation when preparing or making amendments.

Preparing a staff handbook, incorporating essential policies

Staff handbooks should always be considered as a document to have in place when hiring employees. They will outline the employee’s essential general responsibilities for a range of matters, including safety, timekeeping, reporting and more.

Our team can assist with creating a custom-made handbook for your business, ensuring that every little important detail is listed. This means your employees will fully understand what is expected of them during their employment with the business.

Insurance cover through the Employment Law Protection Scheme

Employment law is becoming an increasingly complex area for employers. New legislation and new cases are emerging all the time.  Whilst you may have good processes and documentation in place for employing staff, there is always an element of risk to your business that a dispute could go to tribunal across a range of issues.

Our Employment Law Protection Scheme is a market leading, comprehensive legal expense insurance package. It protects you against the costs of employment tribunals, legal fees, settlements and financial awards in the event of a dispute.

The Employment Law Protection Scheme offers the flexibility for you to design your own bespoke policy with individual elements of cover structured to the specific needs of your business.

Advice through the insurance scheme is carried out by regulated and qualified solicitors, fully authorised to handle your claims through special arrangements with insurers.

Key features of the insurance

  • Instant access to legal advice from a qualified and experienced employment law solicitor
  • Expert advice so you have peace of mind you are up to date with the legislation and compliance within the law
