Contracts and Handbooks

We create legally compliant employment contracts that get the best from your people and protect your business.

Employment contracts, along with your Handbook and/or policies underpin the employment relationship. Well written documents will prevent disputes and employment tribunals as well as making it easier to dismiss when things aren’t working.

Our HR Experts have years of experience, we’ve seen what can go wrong and how to write documentation to keep your business safe.

Employment Contracts

All employers are legally obliged to issue a statement of terms and conditions to all workers by the end of day one of employment. More importantly in many ways, they underpin your relationship with employees. Having a contract that is bespoke to your business needs is essential, many employee issues would be avoided or easily resolved with the contractual agreement in writing. How complex the documents need to be will depend on the nature of your business.

Employee Handbook

Your Employee Handbook tells your employees what you expect of them and in return what they can expect from you. It’s a central reference point and should demonstrate your culture, ethos and brand. Having rules doesn’t need to make you a draconian employer, but a few essentials will make dealing with issues that arise much simpler.

Bespoke HR Documents

We believe that an Employee Handbook provides a single and well known point of reference for employees to find everything they need to know about their employment.

Holding all your policies in one place prevents an employee being able to argue they did not know a particular policy existed. It’s not about making people read it from cover to cover, but simply to know what is there. There are key points they should know and we recommend highlighting these to individuals when they start. Policies like the disciplinary procedure, no employee needs to know this inside out, they just need to know it is there and where they can refer to if thy need it.

That said, long gone are the days when a ring binder somewhere was the only option. How you store and share the Employee Handbook with your team will impact what you call it and how it’s presented. We’ll work with you to create documents that fit your culture and the way you work.
