    Employment Contracts & Staff Handbooks

    Put simply; if you employ people, you need contracts of employment. Yes, they’re a legal requirement for your business, but they also serve a much wider purpose. Employment law contracts form part of a solid HR toolkit you’ll call on again and again as your business grows.

    Staff handbooks are also an essential piece of HR armour. They’re the bible for your business and lay down the rules around what you expect as an employer and what your employees can expect in return.

      Creation of employment contracts

      Howarths can create employment law contracts for your staff, ticking all the legal boxes and leaving you to crack on with your day job.

      Your employment contracts by us will include all the crucial terms of reference (such as what the employee is paid, how many hours they work and what to do if they are sick), but we’ll also cover the clauses providing further protection to your business such as short time working, lay-off, confidentiality and protection of IP rights.

      Drafting thorough contracts of employment might not be the number one way you’d choose to spend your time, but if they’re not well written and robust, you’re leaving business exposed when things go wrong.

      No matter the size of your business, expertly drafted employment contracts are worth their weight in gold.

      Creation of staff handbooks

      Where do I start writing a staff handbook? What does a staff handbook need to include? Does my business really need a staff handbook? Our expert employment law team can answer all those questions and more.

      Your staff handbook is your employment contract’s life-long best friend and forms the bible for your business and how it operates. Our expert team will help you create a staff handbook detailing everything from your company’s policies on family friendly leave, use of social media and company cars, to GDPR, data privacy and much more.

      Your staff handbook is a lifeline for you and your managers as you deal with a range of people and performance related issues and questions throughout your business journey. It also provides your employees with lots of really useful information about how your company operates and what’s expected of them.
