Contracts & Handbooks


When a company takes on employees, it is legally required to provide them with a written statement of the terms and conditions of their employment (a.k.a an employee contract) within 8 weeks. More importantly though, this is the opportunity to set out how you want that individual to work within your company and what they will receive from you in return.

At The HR Dept we provide you with the right contracts for all your staff. We can advise you on pay and benefits, as well as ensuring you meet all the legal requirements.

We include a disciplinary and grievance procedure which is tailor made for your company at the same time.


As a business grows it becomes more important to have a staff handbook that sets out “how things are done around here”. We write handbooks in plain English, which reflects the culture and style of each business. The handbook helps new staff learn the correct way to do things and reminds existing employees of the rules.

If you subscribe to our HR advice line service, your contracts and handbooks will be regularly updated to reflect any changes in HR and employee legislation.
