Most employers already have rules and procedures in place concerning their workplace practices and feel that there’s no need to have anything formal committed to writing. However, having staff handbooks and policy documents in place provides a sound framework of rules and procedures to which both sides of the employment relationship should adhere to.
For more information, or to speak to our experts today about your staff handbooks, policies and procedures, call Gorvins Solicitors on 0161 930 5117, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in our online enquiry form.
We can advise on and draft bespoke policies and procedures for your business, addressing your priorities and the issues prevalent within your organisation or industry.
Our experience in policies and procedures includes:
Our approach to drafting such documents is entirely driven by the needs of your business. We’re committed to providing your business with worthwhile paperwork that reflects the culture and practice of your business and isn’t simply a ‘one-size-fits-all’, off-the-shelf template.
Once in place, our staff handbook and policy documentation will provide both you and your staff with the peace of mind that there are procedures in place to protect both of your interests, allowing you both to understand each other’s roles and responsibilities and what is expected of each other.
