Policies and procedures: reinventing the wheel

Take the hard work out of drafting your HR policies with the help of experienced legal experts, but without the unpredictable bills.

Most SME’s and start-ups will have minimal or no dedicated HR resource. As well doing your day job, you also have to find the time to draft new policies, procedures, contracts and template letters.

Those of you who have been involved with this will know that it can be a time consuming and lengthy process. Once you’ve done your part, many of you will send it to an employment solicitor for review to ensure the documents are legally compliant.

To me this is crazy. You do all the hard work and then pay a solicitor to review your work, amend, or worse still completely rewrite the documents.

What if you could switch this round and the solicitor did the hard work for you to review?

Sounds like a no-brainer, but many of you will not have the luxury of a legal budget to instruct a solicitor to draft policies, procedures and letters from scratch.
