Fixed-Fee Employment Document Audits
We understand how difficult it can be to keep on top of your employment documentation.
Employment law is constantly evolving and so is your business, and contracts that served your needs adequately several years ago may now be out of date – and potentially unlawful.
Having up to date and legally compliant documentation is vital to protect your business in the event of a dispute. It’s also important to ensure that both parties know what their rights and obligations are.
To assist employers with this, Blacks’ Employment Law team can carry out a Fixed-Fee Audit of your contract of employment, staff handbook, applicable polices, and standard correspondence for a one off payment of £197 plus VAT.
As part of this you will get a report setting out what updates are required to bring your documentation up to speed and a Fixed-Fee quotation for any necessary work that is required.
In-house Training and Seminars
In addition to our normal seminars and training programme, we provide our commercial clients with competitive in-house training and seminars to suit their individual employment/HR needs.
If you are interested in having in-house training delivered by one of our expert solicitors, just let us know what topics you would like covered and a convenient time to hold the training.
In addition to training you can also sign up to receive our employment law bulletins here.
