It is vital that they properly represent your organisation’s goals, priorities and values.
Reviewing and updating employee contracts and policies can be a time consuming and burdensome exercise. However, when documentation is out of date or not fit for purpose this can cause problems for your organisation, either in terms of not being able to do what it wants to do or in terms of causing disputes with employees. We will ensure you have the correct documentation in place, tailored to your organisation, to protect the business both at the start and end of the employment relationship and ensure it has the flexibility to meet its goals.
Well drafted employment documentation is key to your organisation achieving its goals. Being absolutely clear about both parties’ rights and duties at the outset of the relationship can prevent disputes later on and, if issues do arise, give the organisation the ability to manage them effectively with the lest disruption possible.
We take time to understand your business and consider how best to protect it contractually, taking into account what you are seeking to achieve. We then provide bespoke documentation from contracts to policies and procedures to achieve that protection and give you the flexibility to manage your staff in the way that suits your business. We also regularly review your employment documentation to ensure it is up to date, legally compliant and suitable for your industry and your workforce.
When an individual leaves your organisation, whether amicably or in more contentious circumstances, we can negotiate termination arrangements to ensure an orderly exit and maximum protection from future litigation freeing your business to focus on its key priorities.
