Legal Advice at the Start of Employment

It is important for the terms of employment to be established at an early stage between the employer and employee.

Not only are there legal requirements to provide employees with a statement of the basic terms of their employment, there is a practical benefit to setting out what the expectations of both the employer and employee are to avoid arguments in the future.

Cunningtons act for employers and employees and can assist in drafting and reviewing contracts of employment, staff handbooks and policies and procedures.

Such policies and procedures may include:-

  • Grievance policies and procedures
  • Disciplinary policies and procedures
  • Capability policies and procedures
  • Whistleblowing policies and procedures
  • Equal opportunities policies and procedures
  • Anti-bribery, gifts and hospitality policies and procedures
  • Flexible working and homeworking policies and procedures
  • Maternity and paternity policies and procedures
  • Holiday policies and procedures
  • IT, communication and data protection policies and procedures
  • Sickness, absence and stress policies and procedures

The necessary terms of any contract of employment and the policies and procedures necessary or relevant to your business are always carefully considered with you.

Cunningtons also acts for employers and employees in advising on matters such as allegations that a candidate has not been offered a position based on discrimination, or redundancy situations after an offer of employment has been made but prior to the commencement of employment.
