The Key to HR
Making sure your company complies with UK employment law …
It is a legal requirement that all employees are issued with written terms and conditions of employment when joining a new employer and in our experience, a large number of disputes and claims that can arise between employees and employers cam easily be prevented or resolved quickly where clear terms and conditions of employment are in place and where the company's human resources policies are properly and clearly documented and understood.
The Key to HR includes the essential documents and policies your company will need to employ people and manage them in line with current UK employment law.
The documents we provide include:
A Staff Handbook containing essential policies covering: holidays, absence management, whistleblowing, drugs and alcohol, bribery, data protection, social media, grievance, discipline, performance improvement, equal opportunities, bullying and harassment, maternity, paternity, adoption, shared parental leave, flexible working, and redundancy. These policies have been approved by a leading UK employment law barrister.
We also provide optional policies for inclusion in a Staff Handbook covering, modern slavery and human trafficking, smoking, IT security, mobile telephone use, adverse weather conditions, company car and/or car allowance and monitoring (CCTV, vehicle trackers etc.).
Standard Terms and Conditions of Employment templates and offer of employment letters for, directors, permanent employees, temporary employees, zero hours workers and contractors.
Standard Form templates including: a new starter form, an occupational health questionnaire, a sickness self certification form, an exit interview questionnaire, an appraisal form, a Working Time Regulations opt-out form, a training agreement and an application form.
Spreadsheets including a holiday and sickness tracker.
The Key to HR comes with a guide explaining how to use each document as well as sample completed documents.
All of the Key to HR documents are General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant.
