Employment and HR
We work closely with HR directors, managers and advisers to provide seamless support in relation to day to day HR and employment issues. We also act as a “sense check” for experienced HR professionals, who want a second opinion or sounding board when unusual issues arise.
Our experience across the team means that we can work with you to find the best solution for your business, rather than simply telling you what the law says.
Contracts and handbooks
Your contracts of employment and policies and procedures, whether in a staff handbook, manual or on your intranet, are the most important documents you have to govern your relationship with your employees.
With a diverse workforce and ever-changing business needs, we understand that “one size fits all” approach does not work for all companies and whether you need full- or part-time employees, fixed term workers, job share arrangements, apprentices or zero hour contracts, we can help.
Post-termination restrictions, otherwise known as restrictive covenants, can help give you the protection you need; however, they will only work if they have been very carefully prepared. This is one area where “off the shelf” simply doesn’t work and, because we understand our clients’ business, we’re best placed to prepare restrictions that can be relied on.
We can also help if you think that your former employee has breached their restrictions, whether they have gone to work for a competitor, or have started approaching your customers with a view to poaching them for a new company.
Restructures and redundancies
No matter what the economic climate, all businesses need to regularly evaluate their performance and profitability. Ensuring that you operate as efficiently as possible will help to guarantee your company’s long term success.
We can work with you at both at a strategic and operational level to make sure that you have the right plans in place and to make sure that changes are implemented swiftly and with as little risk as possible.
We can help with everything from individual redundancies affecting one or two employees, through to workplace closures and large scale redundancy programmes with collective consultation.
Dealing with senior employers, directors or executives who are no longer performing in the way that the company needs can be difficult and often costly. We can help you manage the situation and achieve a solution that is best for the company, with as little risk as possible.
We can advise you possible termination packages and prepare settlement agreements for you, as well as guide you through what can be difficult conversations with senior individuals.
