All employees have a statutory right to a written statement of particulars of employment within two months of their start date. This is to be extended to cover all workers and to be provided by the start of employment (NEW FROM 6 April 2020)
Rather than issuing the 'statement' above and then a further document with all other non statutory information, we recommend that a contract of employment (an essential component of risk management) tailored to the specific needs of the business and the individual job role, is provided at the point the offer is made. This contract will provide you with maximum protection whilst minimising disputes and ambiguity about the employment relationship.
The Handbook is a vital document, providing staff with information and policies relevant to their employment - in short, how your business operates and what is expected from staff. Policies typically include, Disciplinary and Grievance, Attendance Management, Internet & Email use, Flexible Working, Dignity at Work etc. When policies are applied consistently in the business it removes any doubt as to the particular standards and rules which apply, making it easier to manage employees.
If you have not updated your documents in the last three years, call us and ask to review your current Contract of Employment and Handbook and make recommendations for improvement or enhacement to keep your business and employees protected.
“Following our management buyout in 2013 we had no in-house HR expertise to call on. We secured the services of P3PM at that time to ensure we had the right level of knowledge and operational HR experience to manage this major change project. Their work was first class, to the extent that we retained their services to lead all of our day to day HR activities, in addition to providing strategic leadership on people related initiatives. During that time we have successfully completed fundamental changes to our operational model, enhanced our HR policies, improved employee satisfaction and gained Investors in People accreditation. We could not have achieved this work without the engagement and support of the team at P3PM. ”
