How can you help with disciplinary and grievance issues?

This can be a tricky situation to navigate, and we can help present you with all options and risks associated with each course of action.

Creation of employee handbooks and employment policies

Why do I need employee handbooks and policies?

These help to demonstrate how things are done in the workplace. Policies that are usually included in the handbook may include topics such as: health and safety, holidays, sick leave, grievance/disciplinary, equality, leave, benefits, working hours, etc.

Provision of offer letters, employment contracts, privacy notices

Why is this important?

Offer letters are important because this is the final stage in the hiring process, which your ideal candidate has to accept to become employed with you. You want to maintain professionalism and set deadlines.

An employment contract is a legal requirement for someone entering into employment. You want to cover all bases.

A privacy notice is important for data protection, covering how your business collects, uses and retains personal data.

Managing dismissal and redundancies

Do I need support to deal with dismissal and redundancies?

If you don’t have an internal HR team, outsourcing HR support is a great option to deal with these difficult situations. It takes away a lot of administration and paperwork, ensuring things are getting completed properly and safely. We are on hand to help you with any dismissals/redundancies and can present you with all options and risks associated with each course of action.

Drafting day-to-day correspondence and emails

What are the benefits of this?

Think about emails as business letters. Business letters are formal, have a certain tone and are focused on getting a point across. Emails should be treated the same. We can help you draft day-to-day emails which will suit the tone of your business, and in turn, spell out what is expected by the receiver (business related or employees).
