Employment Health Check

Published: 18 February 2013  |  Category: Fletcher Day News

To mark Julian Cox's arrival at the firm as our new Head of Employment we are offering businesses a free, complimentary employment health check.

With UK employment law continuing to develop at a rapid pace, it is important to ensure that your employment contracts and procedures are fully compliant and  up to date so as to avoid unanticipated liabilities for your business. We appreciate that you may have little time available to do this.

We can help your business by providing you with a free employment health check.  We will come to you and review your employment documents and procedures to ensure your business is compliant with the latest developments in employment law.  At the same time we will work with you to ensure your documentation and processes are tailored to the particular needs of your business. Based on this report we will then send you a complimentary report setting out our recommendations with no obligation to you.

Please contact Julian either by telephone (0207 632 1442) or email to make an appointment.
