Employment contracts and procedures

Contracts and procedures underpin the relationship between employer and employee.

The most important aspect to keep in mind is that organisations are continually growing and evolving – as are the roles of staff members and the governing legislation. Problems occur when contracts and procedures don’t keep up with this growth and evolution.

It is a proven fact that precise, best practice contracts and procedures will save your organisation money and increase its prosperity. Time invested each year to keep your employment practices up to date not only reduces the risk of claims, but has a significant positive effect on staff morale and improved productivity. We can review your existing contracts and procedures, draft new ones and ensure your relationship with all levels of employee and contractor is fair and secure.

We can also advise on the extensive overhauls of employment legislation introduced in the last five years such as the compulsory disciplinary and grievance procedures and rules concerning discrimination. In all cases, we will work closely with you to ensure all contracts and procedures suit your exact requirements.
