Frequently Asked Questions

Every organisation employing people will need policies and procedures. Our policies are legally compliant, concise, easy to understand, and they include all new current employment law changes coming into force in 2024. We have also done the hard work for you so that all you have to do is adapt them to suit your organisation.

Every organisation employing people need to have some rules and policies in place so that employees know what is expected of them. By law, employers must have disciplinary and grievance procedures in place in accordance with ACAS Code of Practice. In addition, where you employ 5 or more employees, employers must also have a health and safety policy. This of course is the very basic minimum and in practice far more policies are needed to allow a business employing people to function properly therefore we strongly recommend going beyond the very basic requirements as a matter of best practice and would therefore recommend you also have the following:

  • Equal Opportunities Policy
    Flexible Working Policy
    Bribery Policy and
    Data Protection Policy

Why wait till you have a problem before deciding you need a policy in place.

You should start by gathering any policies currently in use in your business. You may find several versions of the same policy actually exist, or you may find that key policies are missing. Review the policies you currently have and check how long it has been since they were last reviewed. Then make a list of all the policies you need and that will be your starting point. If your business is moving from a position of only having a couple of policies or none at all, you can then focus on introducing a few key policies first which we would recommend as:

  • Discipline and Grievance Procedures
  • Equal Opportunities Policy
  • Flexible Working Policy
  • Bribery Policy and Data Protection Policy

There is right or wrong approach, choose the approach that’s right for you and your business and one that will provide a smooth transition and implementation.

Policies are a good way setting out rules and obligations that apply to your employees that are written in a clear and easily understood format. We ensure they clearly explain what you expect of your employees in certain areas (for example equal opportunities and harassment and bullying), and they also set out what you will do to help your employees in different circumstances (for example, if they are pregnant or absent from work or want to take holidays).

Each policy we have had designed and developed is done in a concise and simple manner that is easy to understand regardless of position held in an organisation. Easy to follow at all levels of an organisation, employers will not be disappointed with their purchase.
We currently have 26 policies for you and our library will continue to develop. However, our 26 policies cover everything you will need in helping you to manage your people. They also include compliance with new legislation coming into place in April 2024 such as new laws on holiday pay, flexible working arrangements, requests for predictable working patters and………. much, much more.
Yes, they most definitely are. Much time and effort has gone into the content of these policies, making sure that current legislation is followed at all times. This also saves you time in having to source this information on your own, with you not having to worry if you have missed something important. We have left no stone unturned.
You can buy whatever number you choose. Each policy is crafted as a stand-alone policy, with cross referencing kept to a minimum. This gives you the ability to use some policies but not others – that choice is yours to make. This is also helpful as it allows you to stagger the introduction of policies if you believe that this would lead to a smoother implementation process.
Whilst we hold all the relevant qualifications and possess the experience required to develop our policies, we work very closely with a leading employment law barrister who develops these policies for us. They are then peer audited and of course we would not use these policies ourselves unless we were 100% confident of their accuracy and source. We have been using this methodology successfully for a number of years now.

The policies are intended to be ‘ready to go’ however there is likely to be a small amount of edits needed to ensure the policies align with the terminology in your business and covers the areas you need it to.

There are clear guidelines giving you the information you need to select the correct section. These guidelines are in the form of optional wording in square brackets. Consider each time whether you want a specific option of wording to be included in your policy or delete or edit as appropriate to give you the perfect policy for your organisation.

The policies are fully editable in Word format and contain guides such as this extract from our Maternity and Family Friendly Policy:
This Policy is drafted to reflect statutory entitlements. If you offer any enhanced entitlements to leave and/or pay, then you should insert details of these entitlements as well.

Or from our Holiday Policy:
* Note that deductions can only be made from an employee’s wages/salary if there is the express right to make deductions contained in the employment contract. Just having it in this Policy is not enough.

If any of the policies you have purchased involve legal updates in the first year of purchase, they will automatically be updated. As you will create an account for yourself when you make your purchase, you can download your document(s) at any time, using your log in details.
