Vardags — when you need to win

My company needs support drafting or updating employment contracts, handbooks and policies

Well drafted employment contracts and comprehensive employment policies are hugely important and can avoid difficulties in the future in terms of managing tricky workplace situations and claim avoidance. The employment team at Vardags can help you to get your employment documentation in order, up to date and fully compliant with employment law requirements.

Employment policies would normally be contained in an Employee Handbook. Key policies include a disciplinary and grievance procedure, a performance management procedure, an equal opportunities policy, a social media policy, a whistleblowing policy and an anti-bullying/harassment policy. It is important for employers to do more than pay lip service to these policies and to follow them at the relevant time. These do not normally form part of an employment contract and do not have contractual effect.

The Employment Handbook is also the place to expand on day-to-day work processes such as notification of sickness absence and booking holiday. It can also set out the detail on the benefits which you offer to your employees. Your Employment Handbook can reflect the brand of your businesses and can set out expectations of your workforce and values. We understand this and can work with you to achieve this.

It may be that you already have contracts and policies in place but that they need a review and update. Alternatively, we can prepare a set of the key employment documents needed where these are not already in place, particularly for start-up businesses. Whatever the circumstances, we can provide expert advice for your particular business' needs.

We offer a free consultation to qualifying individuals. Please call our confidential enquiry line on 020 7404 9390 or email us. Lines are staffed 24 hours.
