Legal Compliance

Employment law can be a bit of a headache, so there is no need to make it any more complicated.

What is best practice for one organisation may not be the right tactic for another. Using a practical approach, it is possible to find the right course of action for your organisation, your employees and your circumstances.

Our recommendations

Decisive and pragmatic action when appropriate, ensuring you understand your various options.  A reasoned approach to balancing the different risks involved in any situation.

Employee Handbooks and HR policies that make sense for your organisation.  Whether you are a micro-business or established complex organisation.

Decisions that reflect your organisation’s culture and approach.  Consideration as to the wider impacts of any planned response.

Focusing on what you can do, rather than what you can’t, in order to identify the most appropriate way forward.

If you’ve got a one-off difficult situation that you’d like to discuss, need a fitting employee handbook, or want to understand options for longer term support, then get in touch for an informal chat.  We’re always happy to answer odd questions as well.

For a more in-depth conversation you can also apply for one of our free strategy reviews.

Alice's workshop on "Practical HR Strategy" opened my eyes to what a planned HR strategy can achieve and how it can be relevant for SMEs. A great investment of time that will make a real difference to the way that I work.
