Start-up Businesses

Starting a new business is a daunting process, and keeping that business going is even more difficult.  We recognise that new employers need a particular kind of support – they need to know the basics of their legal obligations with respect to employing someone, and they need to know them fast.  From how to get the right candidate, what documents to issue to a new employee, what checks they need to be carried out in terms of right to work, what obligations they have with respect to pay and hours, etc.

We have a special support package which has been designed to meet the unique needs of new and small businesses.  It includes:

  • A “new employer” manual – incorporating guidance on a full range of HR/Employment law issues:
  • Getting the right person for the job
  • The new recruit and their first few weeks
  • Rules and procedures
  • It’s time to say goodbye

The guide explains your key legal obligations as an employer- from what to pay, to entitlements to time-off and family leave, through to what you are required to do if you have to make an employee redundant.

  • Unlimited access to expert advice (telephone or email) – we understand that giving you a guide isn’t enough – once you’re aware of the fundamentals, you can speak to one of our team at any time to get further advice in respect of your particular situation
  • Preparation of an Employee Handbook and standard contracts of employment for your staff
  • Review of employee correspondence – we will ensure that your written communications to employees don’t land you in any trouble!
  • Template forms that you will need on a day to day basis, such as:
  • Application for employment
  • Induction checklist
  • Employee Record
  • Holiday request
  • Absence record
  • Self-certification form
  • Return to Work Interview
  • Exit Interview

If you are a new employer, give us a call to chat through the support we can offer.
