Human Resource Service
You will be allocated a dedicated lawyer who will take care of your HR needs.
Your lawyer will review all your existing employment documents, staff handbook, practices and procedures to ensure you are legally compliant.
Employment law can change rapidly and if it does we will react appropriately to keep you and your business legally compliant.
Insurance Cover – Peace of Mind
We aim to provide a preventative service to you, but no matter how well prepared you are statistics
show you are likely to face employment law claims at some point – human nature being what it is.
We have access to a leading legal expenses insurance policy to cover costs and awards of
compensation that may be awarded against you. The rates are very competitive.
Health and Safety/Medical and Occupational Assessments
We can deal with mandatory Health and Safety Executive requirements overseen by experienced
Health and Safety Managers (IOSH, NEBOSH, GIFE).
From the start of employment the employer needs to be sure their employees are fit for the job.
We can arrange pre employment medical screening to determine whether a potential employee is fit for the role. This will prevent future sickness absence, loss and nuisance to the employer, and possible litigation. It is important that whoever interprets the questionnaire is an ‘Occupational Health Professional’ who can identify any potential problems and advise of any restrictions that may be required.
Unfortunately many UK employers have problems with sickness absence, much of which can be avoided by knowing employees’ health status and ensuring that their health does not suffer as a result of their role. Occupational Health can facilitate a timely return to work in the safest possible circumstances to prevent repeat absences. In addition the malingering employee can be dealt with in a legally and medically compliant manner.
Our team can offer:
- Long Term Sickness & Absence Management
- Fork Lift Truck & HGV Drivers Medicals
- Audiometry Assessments
- Eye Sight Tests
- Work Station Assessments
- Pre Employment Screen online or paper based
- Night Worker Assessments
- Lung Function Testing
- Drug Testing
- Travel clinics including vaccinations
- Executive Medicals
- Wellness Testing & Advice, Cholesterol Testing, Smoking Cessation, Well Man/Woman etc.
This is not an exhaustive list.
It is often only after an accident has happened, with sometimes serious consequences, that it becomes apparent that a planned and thorough training regime could have prevented the incident.
Our trainers offer a wealth of practical experience which Clients find invaluable in enabling them both to comply with the law, and prevent accidents.
Some of the services on offer include;-
- One Day Emergency First Aid/Appointed Persons
- AED Defibrillator Training
- Fire Awareness /Certification

This is not an exhaustive list and if you require anything further then please do not hesitate to advise us of your needs and we will react to meet those needs.

Small Business HR Service – UP TO SIX EMPLOYEES
Running a small business is hard work. It takes time, effort, commitment and dedication. Staying legally compliant and ensuring that you don’t get sued or leave the door open for potential claims can be a minefield and a time consuming experience. We can give you a helping hand – peace of mind and certainty. If you employ 6 members of staff or less (including employers, workers, directors and partners), then we can help you. For just £18 a week we will take care of not only all
your personnel issues – but we will be there to help you with all legal queries of a business nature – employment and beyond.
We will ensure your HR documents are legally compliant, provide you with contracts, advise on training, and keep you updated on new legislation that may affect you. We provide a fully indemnified service should a matter get to the tribunal stage (though we would hope to nip it in the bud prior to then).
Solicitors will be available for you 24 hours a day 365 days a week. You will have a name and contact. We are not a faceless service but personal to you and your business.
You can get on with running your business and enjoying life. We will take care of the rest.
Our success has been built on the foundation of excellent client service and the core values of hard work, dedication and excellence.
