Employment Law Advice for Employers

Specialist Employment Law solicitors providing exert advice, guidance and representation to small and medium sized employers across East Anglia.

As an employer it is important you take action to protect your interests and those of the business. Whether you are looking to put in place a robust employment relationship with professionally drafted employment contracts and handbooks (policies), or you face an existing or potential problem with an employee, Holmes & Hills will give you the expert legal advice you need.

Ad hoc advice or Employment Law retainer service

Holmes & Hills Solicitors' Employment Law specialists provide advice and representation covering a wide range of Employment Law issues and circumstances facing employers. Advice, representation and services are provided in one of two forms:

1 - Ad hoc advice and guidance

Smaller employers, those commonly with 10 or fewer employees, will often report they experience Employment Law issues and require advice reasonably infrequently. In these circumstances an appropriate means of accessing expert Employment Law advice is often on the basis of an ad hoc engagement.

Dealing with a contentious issue on an ad hoc engagement:

Where an employer faces a contentious situation or reasonably foresees one arising, one of Holmes & Hills' employment specialists will have an initial conversation with the client to understand the circumstances and what has lead to the situation or issue arising. With this information David provides an estimate of legal costs for delivering the necessary legal advice, guidance and representation to secure a successful conclusion.

Providing employment documentation on an ad hoc engagement:

Where an employer does not face a contentious employment situation but wishes to review existing employment documentation, handbooks and policies; or put in place new, bespoke documentation, David will discuss what is required and is often able to provide a fixed legal fee for advising on and drafting specified and bespoke employment documentation.

2 - Employment Law retainer services

Where employers find themselves regularly dealing with Employment Law matters, or find themselves in situations where they would appreciate the quick, expert opinion of an Employment Law specialist, Holmes & Hills provides the solution of a retainer service.

Providing five different levels of retainer service, starting at just £250 +VAT a month with no set-up fee, Holmes & Hills has designed service offerings with a view to ensuring there is a retainer appropriate for all sizes of business.

In the event your business requires a bespoke or adapted retainer service, this can be discussed and a bespoke package designed to meet the needs of your business and your team.
