CONTRACT OF EMPLOYMENT REVIEW

What is a contract of employment?

A contract of employment is a legally binding agreement between your business (the employer) and your employees. It is a legal requirement that you provide your employees with a written statement of particulars from their first day of employment.

Ensuring your employees have accurate and up to date contracts of employment will help you meet your legal obligations. Contracts should also be bespoke to meet your business requirements.

I give my employees an employment contract, do I need to review this?

Employment law is constantly changing. We recommend that your employment contracts are reviewed regularly. This ensures they are relevant to your business and legally compliant.

How can Sweet HR help?

As well as reviewing your contracts, we can assist with transitioning your team onto new terms and conditions. We can also support you with any difficulties that may arise as part of this process.

HR POLICIES, PROCEDURES & EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK

What is an employee handbook and what is the benefit to my business?

Creating an employee handbook that is more than a list of HR policies can be a challenging task.

An effective handbook should be a resource for your staff to refer to throughout their employment. It will also help your team to understand your business values, aims and goals.

Your employee handbook will be unique to your business and will set out key policies and procedures. These could include:

  • holiday entitlement
  • parental leave
  • sickness and absence
  • disciplinary and grievance
  • health and safety
  • redundancy

Setting these out provides consistency and transparency about how your business will approach several aspects of employment.

Is there more to an Employee Handbook than our HR policies and procedures?

Having policies and procedures in place can protect your business and enhance your contracts of employment. It can also help demonstrate a consistent and transparent approach to managing your team.

Your employee handbook is also an opportunity to set out what you expect from your employment relationship. You can use it to reinforce the culture, values and goals of your business.

Being paperless matters to my business.

Integrating your employee handbook into a HR Information System not only removes the need for paper copies but also offers wider benefits.

With the increase in remote working, having your handbook in a system allows staff to access up to date information quickly and easily.

How can Sweet HR help?

We are experienced in producing employee handbooks for a range of businesses, from under 10 to over 20,000 employees. We have also prepared handbooks for companies operating internationally.

We always take a bespoke approach that fits with the values, aims and goals of your business. We also ensure we follow HR best practice and up to date employment law.

DISCIPLINARIES

How can I avoid poor conduct?

By communicating with your team on how you expect business to be done and what conduct you expect, this will help your business run effectively. When issues arise, minor conduct matters can usually be handled informally. Often addressing your concern with an employee in this way will resolve the problem.

However, there are circumstances where a formal disciplinary process should be followed. This could be due to the nature of the conduct issue or where it may lead to an employee being dismissed.
