Employment & HR advice when you need it most

The Spearing Waite HR Retainer Service gives businesses expert legal support to help them deal with employment law and HR issues as and when they arise. The HR Retainer gives clients confidence that we are on hand to help with all their people-related queries, from advertising and recruitment through to dismissals and post-termination disputes.

What does the Spearing Waite HR retainer cover?

  • Drafting new / improving existing employment contracts and company handbooks
  • Grievances and disciplinary issues in the workplace
  • Absence and performance issues
  • Reorganisations and restructures; and
  • Transfers of business

We also have a wealth of experience defending tribunal claims from ex-employees – for example; claims of unfair dismissal, and discrimination.

Prevention is better than cure

The benefit of having lawyers available ‘on call’ is that we work with the client to manage risks (and problematic employees) much more effectively when we are involved from the outset.

There is no guarantee that a disgruntled employee will not threaten to take legal action. However, we find that we can often stop this threat from becoming a reality or, in the event of a claim, that we are much better placed to successfully defend the client because of our early involvement.

Spearing Waite’s HR retainer can also help you with the day-to-day running of your business by both improving your employment contracts, policies and procedures and by helping you manage your workforce effectively.

Fixed monthly fee & no long-term contract

The HR Retainer Service is a unique approach to the provision of employment law support. Some of our clients have told us that they prefer paying for our advice and support on a monthly basis, as opposed to a “pay as you go” arrangement. We do not seek to tie clients into long-term contracts – we are confident that clients will receive value for money and will want to remain on the Retainer.

The Retainer Service will include regular updates on changes and developments in employment law as well as free seminars and training sessions.

We can also arrange insurance as part of our HR Retainer Service, or separately if required. We recognise that having insurance cover against the risk of a tribunal claim provides many employers with peace of mind.
