Employment documentation packages for start-ups
We understand that as new businesses launch or scale up, staff need to be hired urgently and sometimes the legal documentation can lag behind. We also understand that getting to grips with your legal obligations to your staff can be daunting and confusing as you begin to scale-up.
Implementing the right employment contracts, self-employed contractors agreements, and workplace policies and procedures at an early stage can be a valuable investment to protect your business, by ensuring compliance with UK employment law, safeguarding your business’s assets and information, and avoiding disputes. Having suitable employment contracts and policies already in place can also help secure investment when your business is ready to scale.
We partner with your business to help you understand your employment obligations and introduce tailored employment documents, drawn up by a senior specialist lawyer, for your business’s specific needs and to reflect your business’s culture, which will serve you long into the future.
