HR Consultancy

Employment Law

Current employment law is a complex and ever changing landscape for employers to navigate. Failure to comply with your legal obligations as an employer can result in time consuming and costly litigation.

With our thorough knowledge and experience of the practical application of the law in the workplace, we can advise you on all aspects of employment law to keep you compliant, and prepare you for the legislative changes that are to come. In addition, our Monthly Updates interpret legislative developments and case law for you and offers tips and advice to help you in the day to day management of your people as well as regular updates for your contracts, policies and procedures to make sure you are up to date. Contact us to find out more about what we can do for you.

Policies & Procedures

Procedural failure can often be at the root of successful employee tribunal claims. Ensuring that your policies and procedures for your business are compliant and kept up to date can be time consuming and distract you from focusing on moving your business forward.

By creating and maintaining robust contracts of employment, policies and procedures we can free you to operate your business effectively. Getting the HR infrastructure right will minimise the risk of challenges to your decision making, whether it be through disputes, restructure, redundancy and change or the impact of new employment legislation. We offer a free, no obligation, HR Healthcheck and Audit to all new clients to see how they measure up against current legislation and best practice.

Performance and Attendance Management

Mediocre or poor performance of your staff and high absenteeism will threaten the core of your business. Failure to manage performance effectively can result in loss of motivation and commitment from your staff. Working positively with your people to develop and grow their skills and expertise will give you the edge.

Getting performance and attendance right will have a hugely positive impact on your bottom line. We will advise you on developing appropriate performance and attendance management systems and processes for your business which will help you to set and maintain your standards and produce positive results quickly. We can also support you in offering management training on employment law, effective performance management, communication and conflict management as well as coaching support to managers and individual staff to increase the productivity and commitment of your workforce. Contact us for more information on our training and coaching packages.

Disputes Resolution

In all organisations from time to time the spectre of disciplinary and grievance issues will loom large. When they do they can be extremely expensive and damaging to your business.

With a wealth of experience in managing disciplinary, capability and grievance issues, we can advise and support you through the process of handling such disputes, avoiding the risk of costly litigation and minimising the impact on your business. Prevention or, at the very least, early detection is better than cure, so if you feel a problem is looming, contact us for clear, practical telephone and/or face to face advice and support.

Restructure, Redundancy and Change

In today’s fast moving environment a business that fails to change is a business doomed. The demands on your business to respond to changing markets and economic climates will require you to ensure that change, restructure and redundancy is managed with the least disruption to your business.

We offer practical support through the restructure process, ensuring legal compliance where redundancy and change will impact on your people and the employment relationship. Good planning and preparation is the key to managing change successfully, and we will work with you through the process to ensure the right outcomes for your business. Contact us for further information.
