HR Healthcheck

The Barclay Taylor Healthcheck is a risk management exercise.

In outline the Healthcheck comprises:

  • A telephone interview conducted by one of our employment lawyers, to try to find out what, if any, issues might need addressing to bring your business to the desired level.
  • A visit to your offices for approximate 1-2 hours, again by one of our employment lawyers. Using interviews, observation and a specially devised questionnaire they will conduct an appraisal of your current HR provision.
  • They will produce a report highlighting what areas need urgent attention and others that might need some prioritising. They will give recommendations suggesting the simplest and most cost-effective routes to help you achieve this.

Staff Handbooks:

These have been drafted with both the employer and the employee in mind.

The policies and procedures contained in our Staff Handbooks will mean your business meets its statutory requirements. It contains ready made policies, enabling you to address many common workplace problems – for example: repeated sickness absence; misuse of your internet and communications facilities; and inappropriate behaviour.

For your employees, it contains information on their legal rights in the workplace – for example: Maternity/Paternity/Adoption Leave entitlement and Health & Safety policy. It has a Behaviour & Code of Conduct policy to ensure your employees are treated well by their colleagues. It sets out a Disciplinary Procedure and a Grievance Procedure, so your employees know that you will follow procedures required at law to deal with any workplace matter (and you have an easy route to follow).

We will take all the appropriate details from you over the telephone and then spend up to 2 hours adapting the Staff Handbook to the specifics of your business needs and requirements.

Guidance Notes: Conducting a Disciplinary Meeting:

We have created this guidance booklet to take away all the stress and worry when preparing to take a disciplinary meeting – which is often as painful for the employer as it is for the employee.

The booklet gives you step-by-step advice taking you all the way through the disciplinary meeting: from tips on greeting and seating the employee at the start of the meeting, to making sure that all the legal requirements are being followed. Short of giving you a script to follow verbatim, this booklet provides you with all the information you need to conduct the meeting.
