HR Services Packages
When faced with an employment issue, including an employment tribunal claim, many employers find themselves in a predicament because the essential employment documents and processes they rely on, such as contracts of employment, disciplinary & grievance procedures, family friendly policies, etc, are either poorly drafted, out of date or completely non-existent.
Subscribers to our HR Services Packages don't have that worry because we take care of everything for them. After an initial audit of all existing documentation, we will provide a complete gap analysis and then set out a plan to plug those gaps by updating and/or drafting your employment documentation ensuring that you meet your legal obligations and then ensure they are maintained so you avoid problems in the future.
On average, more than 150,000 Employment Tribunal claims are accepted each year and recent trends have shown sharp rises in claims for Unfair Dismissal (+29%), Breach of Contract (+31%), Redundancy Pay (+48%), Redundancy – Failure to inform & consult (+2.5x)
In addition to the cost of defending Employment Tribunal Claims, these increases in the number of Claims raised resulted in many Business Owners having to pay out hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation awards:
