Concise, up to date and securely drafted workforce contracts, supported by complementary HR policies and procedures, are crucial to the effective operation of an organisation. Getting the documentation right protects the employer, retains employer flexibility and promotes good employer-employee relations.
We deliver straightforward, practical HR documentation tailored to the specific needs of our clients, across the full range of sectors and industries. Our experience ranges from complex senior executive service agreements, through to template documentation for day-to-day HR issues, such as social media and absence management policies.
We draft, review and advise on the whole spectrum of HR documentation. We also carry out reviews and documentation 'health checks', pinpointing areas of concern and identifying solutions.
The employment law advice and guidance that we receive from Bevan Brittan is always timely, reliable, considered and balanced...As a seasoned HR professional, I can highly recommend them.

We assisted a housing association with a comprehensive review and update of its HR policies and procedures. Over 50 separate policies had been developed over time and needed to be rationalised, making them more user friendly to managers and employees alike. We drafted a core set of policies, simplifying processes and reducing the number of personnel who would potentially be involved in any one process so as to free up time and ensure that issues could be dealt with more efficiently. We also advised as the new policies were consulted on and successfully agreed, with minimal amendments, with staff representatives.
