Small growing businesses that are unable to fund their own human resources department may find themselves in a difficult position. They have to provide proper documentation to their growing number of employees but may not have the expertise to properly draw it up. Similarly, their budget may be so tight that they cannot afford to invest in the professional help required to stay within the boundaries of the law.
A contract of employment is one such document that must be created both for the assurances of the business and the employee. It is a document that potentially could be relied upon or referred to in court, so this should give some indication as to its importance.Perhaps the cheapest way to meet the requirements of the law, the employees and the budget of the business is to invest in pre-written employment contract templates. There is a deceptively large range of potential contracts that belong to this area, including interview documents, formal letters, policies and procedures, sickness, leave, misconduct and dismissal as well as redundancy.
Some documentation providers may also have documents which can allow for the appraisal of staff which could be used to boost productivity. Within each of these categories there are also sub-areas such as full and part time job offers, offers for different echelons within the company such as directors and managers as well as retirement and flexible working.
