If you’re looking for help with HR issues, and want to avoid stress, bother and employment tribunals, you’re in the right place.

Managing people has never been more challenging.

Not only has the law grown and evolved over the last few years, giving business owners more boxes to tick, more documents to prepare, and – frankly – more to get wrong, it’s also become a LOT easier for you to end up in hot water.

At present, the barrier to employment tribunal is lower than ever – it costs an ex-employee nothing to put forward a claim, and if it goes all the way and you’re found guilty, you could be on the hook for a sizeable, four-figure sum.

How do you prevent employment tribunals?

The truth is, you can’t, but what you CAN do is ensure that if you do end up in one, you’ve done everything right, and you’ve got nothing to worry about.

That’s where we come in.

Our HR services are designed to keep you 100% compliant with UK law, putting you in the strongest possible position, reducing the chances of a tribunal claim, and ensuring that if you do have to go to tribunal, you’re not vulnerable.

What we do and how we do it.

When it comes to HR, you name it, we do it, so if you’ve got a people management problem, whether you’re missing a crucial document, or you’ve got an issue with a staff member, get in touch and we can help. 

Here’s how we do what we do:

Employment Contracts

Contracts form the backbone of successful human resources – once you’ve got watertight contracts in place, there’s a lot less chance of things going pearshaped.

Trouble is, getting a contract right is easier said than done, which is why downloading a template off Google, or asking a business owner friend to send them yours which you can tweak isn’t a smart move.

Getting your employment contracts drafted professionally by a human resources expert from J Mann Associates will ensure all of the right information is included, that you’re fully up to date with employment law and that you’re not vulnerable to an attack from a current or former employee.

We can take care of the whole contract drafting process for you – to talk to us about contracts, call us on 01980 622167 or click here to book a call.

Policies and Procedures

In addition to contracts, it’s vital to have policies and procedures in place to let both employer and employee know what’s expected of them.

Effectively, HR policies provide a description of what you and your employees are entitled to, and what both parties are expected to do too.

Some policies are legally required, while others aren’t, but the more policies you have, the more you keep your staff informed about the way you operate, and the less chance you’ve got of something slipping through the net.

Some examples of policies include:

• Absence management
• Maternity/paternity/parental leave
• Redundancy
• Equality and diversity
• Disciplinary & grievance
• Bullying and harassment
• Smoking, drugs and alcohol
• And many more!

Procedures go hand-in-hand with policies, specifying what needs to happen in order to comply with certain policies.

Whether you need your policies reviewed, redrafted, or you don’t have any policies at all, we can help – just call us on 01980 622167 or book a call and we’ll be happy to help.

Employee Handbook

An employee handbook is a critical tool to help you make sure your employees know what’s expected of them and their relationship with your organisation.

In it, you’re able to set out everything they’ll need to know about their employment with you, from what they should do when planning annual leave, through to how to call in sick.

With a comprehensive handbook in place, you give your staff all the tools to work effectively for you, while also protecting yourself if there are any issues further down the line.

To talk to us about compiling your employee handbook, or reviewing your current one, call us on 01980 622167 or book a call.

HR Advice

Sometimes, you just need to talk to someone who knows what they’re talking about.

Our HR advisors can be booked for one-off advice calls, so if you’ve got a specific issue you need to talk through, or you’ve got a burning question that needs answering by an expert, we can help. You can simply buy a 15-minute block to get the advice you need.

Are your HR documents up to date?

Maybe you had some contracts drawn up a while ago, or maybe you went online, found some templates and did them yourself. But if push came to shove, would those documents do exactly what you need them to do? If you don’t know, you need to find out.

The truth is that employment law changes regularly which is why it’s vital to regularly review you HR documents to make sure they are still legally compliant.

We offer a one-off HR Healthcheck, where we go through all of your documentation with a fine toothcomb, exposing any errors or weaknesses and giving you recommendations to ensure that your business is protected by your HR documentation.

Once we’ve checked your HR documents, you’ll get a bespoke report, highlighting your areas of weaknesses and providing recommendations for how you can improve them, so you’ll get complete clarity on the right way forward.

To talk to us about an HR Healthcheck call us on 01980 622167 or book a call.
