Contracts of Employment

The Contract of Employment forms the backbone of the employment relationship.

Not only is it a legal requirement for employers to provide a written statement of the terms & conditions of employment, but by doing so, you will avoid ambiguity which may lead to potential disputes.

Contracts therefore are a necessary tool which help to protect your business by ensuring all parties understand exactly what they are agreeing to.

Managing Employee Absence

All companies will experience staff being absent from work. Managing absence in an appropriate way that is fair to the Company and its staff is therefore essential.  

Absence from work can usually fit into either of the following categories – Planned or authorised absence (such as holidays etc.) or unplanned/unexpected.

It is the unplanned that cause the major disruptions in the workplace. This is absence which an employer is unaware of until just before it happens. This can sometimes make it difficult for an employer to plan cover arrangements. Company’s often feel powerless on how to deal with these issues. This is where we can help and guide you appropriately so before you act, get our advice.

Staff Handbooks bring together and summarise the Company’s policies, procedures, and practices. Some of which are required by law, whereas others are individual to your business.

Creating effective Handbooks will help form a strong foundation for your Company’s culture by clearly outlining your expectations of your employees. This can lead to higher staff retention and greater productivity.

Job Descriptions

A job description is not only a vital document used during recruitment processes, but also a management tool to refer to throughout an individual’s employment.

A meaningful job description should; outline your expectations of people in their roles, explain their purpose in the wider business, encourage collaboration between departments, and inspire career development.

Ultimately, they focus your employees on what they need to achieve to support the Company with reaching its collective goals and objectives.
