There is absolutely no doubt that these are challenging times.
Employment and HR issues affect every organisation.
Whether it is taking on more staff to deal with growth in your practice, reassessing workforce levels in light of restructuring, or managing your current employees, it pays to have the best people on your side.
The provision of healthcare brings with it many specific employment problems, the most acute being the implications of safeguarding and the fact that dismissal action often has professional regulatory ramifications.
Our multi-disciplined team of Solicitors and Human Resources professionals are retained advisors to many healthcare practices and as such are familiar with the day to day problems and employment issues which they face.
We work together to ensure you receive commercial, practical and pragmatic advice and support.
With one of the largest specialist employment law teams in the North of England, we can offer the strength in depth to tackle any issue.
We have eight partners, twenty additional solicitors and CIPD-qualified professionals all of whom specialise exclusively in employment law, practice and procedure.
We have experience of every conceivable HR situation, in particular:
- Disciplinary and grievance procedures
- Contract of employment, policies and procedures
- HR consultancy
- Investigations and training
- Tribunal claims
- TUPE transfers
- Equal pay
- Settlement agreements
The sector is varied, but a common feature is the need to ensure cost efficiency within largely fixed budgets.
As such our packages designed specifically for SMEs take the risk out of managing employees and are often a perfect solution for all apart from the largest healthcare establishments.
