​Employment law and staffing issues are often both tricky and costly; many of our new clients tell us that they do not know where to start. The simple answer is to get the legal documents in place first.  Unfortunately for many small (and sometimes big) businesses they will only put in the right documentation when it is too late. Sadly it’s us SME’s that get hit the hardest when this happens.
Contracts of Employment and Handbooks are rule 101 for employing staff. They set out clear expectations for staff and help prevent misunderstandings. As a rule of thumb, the first question in employment disputes is 'what does the contract say?'
Clearly drafted contracts and handbooks can prevent disputes arising in the first place and usually assist in resolving issues quicker. Imagine building your dream house but leaving out the foundations because they’re boring, complicated and no one ever looks at them. Your dream home is doomed. All because you missed that all important step!
In the last few years’ the number of cases going to an Employment Tribunal has dropped. However, that’s no reason to become complacent. Well written employment documents are essential for any business employing, at least, one person. Not only is it the law to provide employees with certain documents and information when they start, having the right terms and clauses in your contracts of employment will help you achieve the flexibility, control and protection that every organisation needs.
At Orchard-Rowe Consultancy, we work hard to ensure our templates are up to date, practical and give you the peace of mind every business owner needs.
