The service is co-ordinated by a dedicated solicitor for each client and has four main elements:
- Unlimited employment law advice
- Contracts of employment, policies and procedures
- Documentation drafting and vetting
- Email updates
The cost for the service is fixed in advance. Payment can be made monthly by direct debit.
The contract period is for a minimum of one year.
We provide a bespoke personal service to retained clients who have unlimited access to our team 365 days a year for advice and assistance on all areas of employment law.
Advice is generally given by telephone and email, with face-to-face meetings when required.
We give clear, practical adivce which can be readily understood and acted upon by clients.
We recognise that different clients require different types of support. Whether you need basic guidance on appropriate employment policies and procedures or you are more concerned with strategic HR planning, our legal team will help and support you to ensure that you meet the particular employment law challenged facing your organisation.
At the outset, we carefully review all existing systems relevant to employment law including contracts of employment, policies and procedures, before providing clear, written recommendations on what changes may be required.
We then redraft or amend all employment contracts and associated literature to best meet each client's precise needs. We are happy to tailor each contract to a client's exact specifications. Our contracts are drafted in plain English so as to be clearly understood by employers and employees alike.
Contractual and policy documentation is thereafter updated as necessary to comply with new legislation or changing client requirements.
We draft or vet all employment documentation for clients, including:
- Disciplinary letters
- Grievance letters
- Settlement agreements
- Letters of dismissal and appeal
- Trade Union correspondence
To complement on-going advice and assistance, we provide regular email updates of developments in employment law, including important court and Employment Tribunal decisions and new legislation.
Our email updates take the form of Just Employment Law Alerts and the more detailed Just Employment Law Analysis.
