Employment law is a complex and ever-changing area of legislation. If you are not up to date with your legal requirements and best practice in areas of people management, mistakes and omissions can be very costly. As an example, employment tribunals can award up to £89,000* for unfair dismissal. And of course, such actions can really damage your organisation’s reputation.
How can we help?
HR Solutions is the HR arm of PIB Risk Management, offering services for those who do not have their own internal HR function or require specialist outsourced HR support.
Our approach helps you plan, maintain legal compliance and work through your HR challenges and is designed to help you manage your employment law obligations. Obtaining the right advice, at the right time, can save you time and money, and help minimise the risk of expensive litigation.
Our role is not to overwhelm you with legislation, but to guide and advise you in a professional, approachable, and cost-effective way.
We can provide the following services:
Telephone and email advice - We offer a telephone and email support service providing people management and Employment Law advice during normal business working hours.
HR audit - We audit existing HR practices and documentation to check for legal compliance.
Documentation - Preparation and updating of contracts of employment, handbooks, and policies that are tailored to the requirements of your organisation.
On-site support - On-site visits or online meetings can be arranged for advice and guidance on more complex matters such as redundancy, lay-off and short time working, TUPE implications and relocation.
Settlement agreements - We offer a full-service including preparation and negotiation of settlements as well as early conciliation through the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS).
Counselling helpline – We provide a counselling helpline via our third-party partners. The helpline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is a confidential counselling service, and all counsellors are bound by the Code of Ethics and Practice of the Association of Counselling. The helpline can be used to discuss any work or non work-related matters.
