Employment Contract &HR Policies

Every practice needs to ensure that its contracts, staff handbooks, policies and procedures are up to date and legally compliant, including compliance with the conditions and provisions of the Health and Social Care Act 2008.

If all your written documentation is reviewed regularly and correctly drafted, your practice will be in the best possible position to handle any day to day employment matters and any unforeseen issues as swiftly and easily as possible.

In the healthcare sector, as with all businesses, you need to ensure you are complying with current legislation.

How Can We Help

At Else Solicitors we are happy to review your existing policies, procedures and documentation and advise of any risks or gaps that have the potential to lead to costly and disruptive action in the future. We can also offer new clients a free, one-hour consultation.

We will work closely with you, getting to know your practice, so that we can produce policies, staff handbooks and other documents that meet your business requirements exactly and minimise the chances of an employment law dispute in your dental practice escalating to a claim from an employee, or member of staff, or an Employment Tribunal hearing.

For more information on how we can help, please contact the dental law team on 01283 526200, alternatively you can send us a message and we will get in touch at a time that suits you.
