Why Your Business Needs An Employment Law Retainer

Every year, the number of employment-related claims made by employees goes up. There are new offences, more awareness generated and new avenues to improve employee rights, which can feel like a minefield for businesses.

In 2017, the average compensation a business had to pay for a racial discrimination claim was £36,000, plus over £17,000 in legal fees. Not to mention all of the time spent handling it, and the bad publicity that comes from it.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. With our help, you can be sure that your business has all of the help, advice and support it needs to prevent issues like this happening and handling them if they do. We can offer your business a bespoke, proactive, and comprehensive solution that’s tailored to suit your needs.

Our bespoke retainer can include some or all of the following options:

  1. A 9-5 advice line to a specialist employment solicitor. Avoid potential problems by getting the right advice from day one, and reduce the risk of a tribunal.
  2. Professional help with your employment contracts and employee handbook, so that you can create bespoke, up to date and legally compliant materials.
  3. Full support on day-to-day employment issues, such as dismissals, grievances, disciplinary letters, settlement agreements and more.
  4. Insurance cover for legal costs, in case one of your employees brings a claim against you, along with cover for compensation should they be successful.(optional extra)

Zahir was an amazing solicitor. He has been completely honest during the whole process and has been so genuinely interested in the case. I hope I never have to use an employment lawyer again but if I do find myself needing an employment representative, it’ll definitely be Zahir again. I would 100% recommend him if you’re looking for an employment lawyer.

I have been working with Herefords for a year or so now and they have been so helpful as my outsourced legal advisory for HR issues. They have guided me seamlessly through some tricky hurdles and I wouldn't change provider for anything.
