Solicitors specialised in employment law
If you find yourself in a situation where you think you may be in breach of the law, it is advised to get support from a solicitor.
We will not recommend any specific law firm — as that depends on where you are based — but will list some of the most common HR services employment lawyers can help your startup with.
Get the peace of mind of always complying with the law:
- Get a solicitor to draft your employment contracts
- Negotiate salaries and benefits while staying on the right side of the law
- Follow the latest regulation when it comes to making redundancies or implementing a disciplinary process
Pricing will vary depending on the services you need - solicitors usually charge per hour. One thing to be aware of is that this type of support can soon build up to thousands of pounds per month, so it’s best used on one-off occasions, especially if you are a startup with a tight budget.
What people say
The guidance we received never really made sense in the context of a small, fast-moving and fast-growing company like ours. There were times we’d be advised to follow a 12-step action plan – and for a company of 10 people, that felt like overkill.
