The benefits of using Lawrite HR employment law services
We can help employers fulfil their legal obligations by using the right documents and policies, following the right procedures, and getting the right advice from experts to avoid disputes with employees that take up valuable hours of management time to resolve or end up as expensive Employment Tribunal claims.
Many employment disputes occur because important areas of the employer-employee relationship have never been clearly documented in a properly-drafted contract. Most Employment Tribunal cases are lost because employers have not followed basic procedures.
Employment law and HR documents
If you subscribe to the Lawrite Managed HR service we can take your instructions and draft a set of individual employment contracts for each of your employees, carefully worded to specifically suit the requirements of your business or organisation.
The Lawrite Employment Law Documents Software provides generic template documents for contracts, staff handbooks and letters to employees.
Guidance and advice about employment law
There are more than 700 pages of written employment law and HR guidance (pdf format) included as part of the Lawrite Employment Law Documents Software.
The Lawrite legal advice line, which is staffed by a team of employment lawyers, provides telephone advice about employment law, commercial law and health and safety law for subscribers to the Employment Law Service, Employment Law Plus and Managed HR.
Additionally, Managed HR clients get an enhanced level of strategic legal support, with an assigned employment lawyer who you can contact by e-mail and telephone, or who can visit your premises to provide on-site support.
Protection from Employment Tribunal claims and legal representation
Using the Lawrite HR best practice systems to ensure the right documentation is in place, including clear policies and procedures to cover equality and discrimination issues, and having unlimited access to practical and pragmatic advice from lawyers will considerably reduce an employer's chances of being taken to an Employment Tribunal.
This will protect employers from the legal costs of defending a claim and compensatory awards (and it will also cover legal defence costs of health and safety prosecutions, tax enquiries, criminal prosecutions and property disputes).
Health and safety
We provide a detailed health and safety policy statement, which also forms part of the staff handbook, and risk assessment forms, as well as written guidance. Health and safety law advice is also available from the advice line.
