Specialist legal support for your business

Putting clear, comprehensive employment procedures and policies in place has real benefits for your business. They help employees understand what the business expects of them, and how they should behave. 

Employment procedures and policies can also help protect your business in case of a dispute or employment tribunal claim. This is because they can help prove that your business had effective procedures in place to deal with any issues fairly and lawfully.

Our services include:

  • Drafting employment procedures and policies
  • Reviewing employment procedures and policies
  • Updating employment policies and suggesting additional policies
  • Drafting employment policy templates

How we work with you

At Tees, we understand how important it is to clearly define the relationship between employers and employees. Everything we do is designed around you and your people – we always work according to your business needs and culture.

Training sessions for employees

Helping your employees understand employment issues is a key part of effective people management. Our employment law specialists regularly run training sessions for businesses, guiding employees through your employment procedures and policies. 

Drafting and reviewing employment policies

Our service is fully flexible, depending on your needs. If you don’t have any policies in place, we can draft bespoke documents which will protect your business.

If you already have employment policies in place, we can review and update them in line with current employment legislation. As part of our review, we will highlight additional policies which may be relevant to your business, such as;

  • Paternity leave and pay
  • Data protection and GDPR
  • Social media
  • Bribery and anti-slavery procedures
  • Bullying and harassment

If you know exactly what type of employment policy you need, we can provide a template document for your in-house teams. This is commonly a cost-effective option and will minimise training needs and potential disruption to your business.

Our costs

We deliver costs transparently, and we always discuss legal costs at the outset. We can agree our level of involvement to be commensurate with your budget, and we may be able to agree fixed fees or capped fees in certain cases.
