Employment policies and procedures

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, how they should behave and what their contractual rights are for example to their terms and conditions of employment.

Employment procedures and policies can also help protect your business in the 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.

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. We listen carefully to what you need to achieve and always work according to your business needs and culture.

Examples of employment policies

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. A complete set of policies would include:

  • 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 a cost-effective option and will minimise training needs saving your time and money.
