Knowledge

This area of the website provides a complete online guide to employment law. There are 15 subject areas to choose from and they are listed alphabetically from Disciplinary and Grievance Practice and Procedure through to Wrongful Dismissal.

Fact Sheets

From this section, you can access a collection of over 75 focused guidance notes covering all of the key issues that may arise in the employment relationship, such as redundancy, unlawful discrimination, industrial action, dismissal of short serving employees, varying terms of contract of employment, national minimum wage, Working Time Regulations, references, maternity and flexible working. The fact sheets are organised by topic, and can be downloaded as PDF files for you to read at your leisure.

Legal Documents

Without doubt the most valuable section of the website, with over 290 precedent employment law documents, this section contains letters, forms and policies covering all of the important employment law matters you may need to deal with from initial recruitment right through to termination of employment. For example, there are letters to guide you through instituting a redundancy process, commencing disciplinary proceedings and dealing with a grievance, as well as a precedent offer of appointment letter, contract of employment, director’s service agreement and various add-on contractual clauses. Again, the legal documents are organised by topic and can be downloaded in MS Word format, enabling you to easily adapt it to suit the needs of your business.
