Employment Packs

We offer all your basic employment documents in one pack

Employing staff carries a range of responsibilities and legal obligations that starts with the hiring process. Employers are required by law to provide a written statements of terms that must contain certain pieces of information. To run an efficient business, it is also good practice to have certain policies and procedures in place for your personnel.

At Longmores, we are able to offer various packs which provide templates of documents to  meet these obligations that you can purchase in a ready-to-use format requiring minimum tailoring. These include comprehensive packs which cover a range of procedures, as well as packs related to specific issues and processes.

You can choose from:

  • The Employment Essentials Pack – which contains the standard documents every employer needs
  • The Employment Essentials Plus Pack – our comprehensive option which also includes extra policies and procedures that you may require in the lifecycle of employing staff
  • The Restrictive Covenant Pack – containing guidance and templates on the processes to follow when adding restrictive covenants to employee contracts and responding to a breach by an employee
  • The Redundancy Pack – this provides documentation related to conducting a thorough redundancy process
  • The Settlement Agreement Pack – the documents required to carry out a compliant settlement agreement process

These employment documents are designed to be purchased “off the shelf” and ready for you to use, offering a cost-effective solution for your human resources documentation.
