Make Sure Your Business Isn’t One Involved In A Dispute September 18, 2007

Posted by liverpoolchamber in Business, Chamber HR, Chamber Services, Legislation, News, Services.

Did you know?

  • That a contract of employment is required for all employees
  • That if you do not have a compliant disciplinary and grievance procedure you may face a financial penalties in an employment tribunal
  • If an employer has five or more employees that they have a statutory duty to have a Health and Safety Policy.

As a member of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, you can benefit from a free dedicated telephone advice line supported by a comprehensive website to provide you the necessary documentation and advice you need to implement good human resource practice.

Each year there are in excess of 100,000 employment disputes that result in employment tribunals. Our service will enable Chamber members to seek free invaluable advice from experts early on in a dispute and could help prevent issues escalating to litigation.

The service known as ChamberHR provides members with unlimited telephone Human Resource and Health & Safety advice lines and access to over 150 downloadable documents, letters, policies and procedures. Included with these documents are a compliant Contract of Employment and a Health & Safety Policy. Businesses need to ensure that their employees have a Contract of Employment and if they employ more than five people, they have a statutory obligation to have a written Health & Safety Policy. Failure to comply could lead to financial penalties being imposed by an employment tribunal.

ChamberHR is also complimentary to the Chamber Legal Expenses scheme therefore offering additional peace of mind by subscribing to this scheme. As a result not only will you receive proactive advice through ChamberHR but also reactive insurance to cover the cost of representation and awards in respect of Employment Tribunal claims. Currently there is no ceiling on awards related to discrimination including Race, Sex and Age.

The ChamberHR service is provided by Qdos Consulting, who, are a long established consultancy company providing services to Accountants, Lawyers and Businesses.  For more information on ChamberHR or to obtain your log in and password details, please contact  Jenny Stewart at Liverpool Chamber of Commerce on  0151 227 1234 or email jenny.stewart@liverpoolchamber.org.uk.
