Ready To Go Employee Handbook

Whilst there is no legal requirement for a business to have an employee handbook it does make sense to make your employees aware of the policies which are referred to in their contract of employment and the easiest way of doing this is to display them together in an employee handbook.

If you are the owner of a smaller business whose benefits package reflects the statutory provisions and want to implement a simple yet professional employee handbook then my Template Employee Handbook will provide a perfect solution for you.

Start Protecting Your Business Today

Ready To Go HR Department

If you are setting up a new business or are the owner of a micro or small business you are probably juggling all the balls in your business and don’t have the time or expertise to establish effective HR processes yourself. You are probably finding HR matters a bit daunting and keep putting them to one side, for another day.

I designed my ‘Ready To Go’ On-line HR Department to provide a road map to solving those HR issues that are keeping you awake at night.

Topics covered include:

  • Getting It Right From The Start: it all starts with knowing what you want people to do and how they will fit in to your team. Good recruitment practices will save you time and money and help make sure you have the right people on your team.
  • Wages, Benefits and Working Patterns: guidance to help you manage different working patterns, agency workers working time regulations and wages
  • Getting The Best From Your Employees: clearly setting out duties, goals and performance standards for your employee to achieve will ensure everyone is working together towards achieving your business goals. You will then be able to easily spot where you have gaps in skills and knowledge.
  • Time off from Work: all employees have a statutory right to time off work in certain circumstances such as holidays and maternity leave. Unplanned absences i.e. sickness and AWOL employees, cause the most problems though and need quick action to nip them in the bud.
  • Having a Baby or Adopting a Child: all employees have a statutory right to time off work when they are having a baby or adopting a child. The rights apply to mothers and fathers including same sex couples. The latest legislation introduces rights for parents using surrogacy to have a baby.
  • What To Do If Things Go Wrong: dealing with grievances or disciplinary matters in the correct way is essential in order to resolve matters as quickly and amicably as possible and to avoid claims for unfair and constructive dismissal.
  • Terminating The Employment Relationship: some employees will chose to leave, if the recruitment process is working right these will be reduced to a minimum, but there may be situations that arise where you need to ‘exit’ individuals from your organisation and these must be managed in the right way to avoid claims for unfair dismissal.
  • Other HR Related Issues: a drop-box section for smaller subjects that don’t warrant having there own folder such as ACAS Early Conciliation, Data Protection, Employing Under 18s, Retention of Employee Records and Searching Employees

The ‘Ready To Go’ On-line HR Department provides peace of mind by providing you with step-by-step guidance through the essential HR functions giving you the confidence of knowing what to do and when to do it whilst ensuring the letters you use are legally compliant. You can boost your basic membership by adding unlimited telephone and email advice for when you want to clarify an aspect of UK employment legislation or seek personalised advice on a specific situation that is happening in your business such as a potential disciplinary matter.
