An employment contract sets out your employee’s rights, responsibilities and duties. They are entitled to a written statement of employment terms within two months of starting work but ideally it should be in place as soon as they accept a job offer. Having a written contract reduces the chances of disputes at a later date. It’s important to get the contract right as both you and your employee are bound by the employment contract until it ends or until there’s an agreement to change the terms. Our bespoke contracts can contain clauses specifically to protect your business such as confidentiality, restrictive covenants and layoff.
Also called policy manuals, the employee handbook is one of your most important HR documents. It sets out your expectations for employees and describes what they can expect from the company. A good handbook should be clear and simple to avoid any misunderstandings which could create future legal issues. Typical policies to be included are:
- Severe Disruption Policy
- Email, Internet & Social Media
- Anti-Bribery Policy
- Disciplinary Policy
- Grievance Policy
- Whistleblowing Policy
- Equal Opportunity Policy
- Bullying And Harassment Policy
- Stress At Work Policy
- Relationships At Work
- Conduct While On Company Business
- Home & Remote Working Policy
- Alcohol And Drug Abuse Policy
- Data Protection Policy
- Maternity Policy
- Paternity Leave Policy
- Adoption Leave Policy
- Ordinary Parental Leave Policy
- Shared Parental Leave Policy
- Time Off For Dependants Policy

Job Evaluation & Pay Grading
Evaluations help employers decide the importance of different jobs within the company, and determine the right pay and grading for each particular role (not the person). It helps ensure your company has a fair and equal pay system. Grassroots HR bring both expertise and independence in the evaluation process, which is particularly invaluable to organisations undergoing rapid growth or a restructuring programme.
Regular employee appraisals help keep your business moving forward. It’s not always possible to supervise all your employees all the time, by setting aside time for an appraisal you can evaluate performance, have an opportunity to understand how employees feel about their role, and present them with new personal development opportunities. Grassroots HR can put in place an effective appraisal process for your business and provide training for managers. If required we can also assist with appraisals and provide guidance. We can also conduct independent reviews with your staff to obtain honest feedback and discussion of any issues.
Restructuring can involve reorganising the legal, ownership or operational structure of a company. It can occur for many reasons including reducing overheads, increasing profitability or simply reorganising the workforce to meet future needs. It often means taking difficult and controversial decisions and it can potentially expose companies to disputes with employees. At Grassroots HR we’ll help guide you through the HR implications of restructuring, making it as simple and straightforward as possible. We will also work to support you and the employees through what can be an emotionally and financially difficult time by bringing in our associates to provide support as needed, such as debt advice, interview and CV preparation and goal setting.
