Small business HR guidance
HR Assist is available to businesses with 30 employees or less. If your business employs more than 30 people we can still help, contact our HR support specialists for more information on our tailored packages, including Workplace Plus.
Civil Discrimination - Free 30 minute telephone consultation
Claims of discrimination can be brought in the County Court by service users or consumers, against companies, service providers, organisations undertaking a public function and private clubs/associations. As a business you will likely fall into one of these brackets and will therefore be responsible for all actions of your employees, workers and/or contractors in the course of their role.
Claims of this nature can be extremely costly, time consuming and potentially damaging for businesses and their profiles.
At Stephensons, members of our team also specialise in this niche area of the law, with extensive experience in dealing exclusively with Discrimination Claims.
However if you are a member of our Workplace Plus Service, our team of discrimination specialists can assist by offering a free telephone consultation in order to discuss the best way forward in tackling the issue.
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
