Small business HR guidance

HR Assist is available to businesses with 50 employees or less. If your business employs more than 50 people we can still help, contact our HR support specialists for more information on our tailored packages. 

Our specialist HR and employment law team are recommended in the Legal 500, which provides unbiased analysis of the UK legal market and independent recommendations of the leading law firms, based on the opinions of clients. 

We can provide guidance on any HR or employment related issue, including:

  • Drafting policies and procedures
  • Recruitment advice
  • Employee management
  • Advice on performance
  • Dealing with grievances, disciplinary and dismissal issues
  • Redundancy advice
  • Defending all types of tribunal claims

In many small businesses it is often the business owner who must deal with any employment disputes or tribunals, for a one off annual fee these situations can be dealt with by legal specialists, leaving owners to concentrate on running the business.

Health and safety

As part of the HR Assist package businesses will also have access to a health and safety specialist who will be able to provide initial sign posting guidance on the health and safety issues faced by your business. 

Companies with pro-active health and safety practices are associated with:

  • Improved relative financial performance
  • Improved production/performance
  • Higher employee commitment and morale
  • Better management-employee relations
  • Improved absence management

Our Trustpilot reviews

The whole experience of working with Martha, my solicitor from Stephensons, was excellent. She gave great advice and was open and honest with her responses. She responded quickly and worked hard at trying to get a resolution for me.
