Employment Contracts & Staff Handbooks
Drafting thorough contracts of employment, staff handbooks and appropriate policies form the bedrock of the HR foundations in your business. If they’re not well written and robust, you’re leaving business exposed when things go wrong. The Howarths team will work with you to create employment law contracts for your staff, a fully relevant and accessible staff handbook and appropriate policies. Not only will these tick all the legal boxes, but they’ll be the start of you building robust systems to help your people, and therefore your business, to thrive.
