Regular changes to employment legislation, increased employee awareness of their legal rights coupled with difficult economic circumstances means there is always the chance of an employment claim being submitted against your business. The financial consequences of employment disputes are often underestimated.
To help local businesses minimise the potential for employment disputes and their consequences we are offering an employment protection service. Our package includes:
- Employment documentation audit and review
- 9am- 5pm advice helpline
- Ongoing business legal services and help on procedures and HR issues
- Insurance protection
Our scheme offers an easy and cost effective way to remove the burden of employment legislation for a simple monthly fee. The scheme is intended to help businesses avoid employment disputes which can be extremely damaging in terms of financial cost and business reputation.
Employment documentation audit and review – annual review of key employment documents and procedures to ensure that you are complying with up-to-date legislation and best practice.
9am-5pm advice helpline – direct access to an unlimited telephone advice line manned by qualified employment law solicitors.
Ongoing legal help on procedures and HR issues – expert advice and guidance on all HR procedures and issues, including drafting any letters and reviewing documents.
Insurance protection – if, in spite of the support and advice provided, an employment tribunal claim should occur, you have financial protection of an insurance policy which will provide cover for legal costs and most awards and settlements of up to £250,000 per claim. Cover also includes the defence from actions arising out of Criminal Prosecution and Data Protection Act.
The benefits for your business
Financial certainty – You can set a budget for HR and employment law costs, knowing that there will be no expected pay-outs; just a fixed cost to protect your balance sheet.
Cash flow friendly – you can spread the cost of the scheme by paying in instalment on a monthly basis.
Direct contact – you will be allocated your own dedicated employment solicitor who understands the needs of your business. We are not a call centre, you will always be dealing with the same person. You can be confident when dealing with staffing issues because your solicitor in Cambridgeshire is just a phone call away.
A reduction in management time and costs – no more wasted management time. We will get your business compliant and handle any employment disputes and claims on your behalf with insurers.
Regulated expert advice. We are regulated by the Law Society and are required to act in your best interests.
