Employment law compliance made easier thanks to Palmers Solicitors

Lara Murray

Employers who find that their valuable time is taken up trying to keep their printed staff handbook updated are being offered a more practical alternative by Essex-based Palmers Solicitors.

Staff handbooks are used to keep employees up to date with a company’s policies and procedures. However, ever-changing employment legislation means that keeping printed handbooks updated can be a time-consuming process for employers whose time would be better spent on the day-to-day running of their business.

Palmers has launched a new service which removes this burden from employers, by placing this information online where employees can view it from anywhere with an internet connection, as well as keeping it updated on the employers’ behalf.

Additionally, employers using this service will also benefit from emails to tell them what changes have been made to their handbook, ensuring they are kept fully up to date at all times.

Lara Murray, an associate solicitor at Palmers, who specialises in employment law, said: “Like many employers, you may have a printed staff handbook containing your policies and procedures. However, you will need to invest a significant proportion of your valuable time constantly researching and updating this printed handbook, reprinting it and then disseminating it to staff.

“At Palmers, we can provide you with your own bespoke HR website where we can keep this important information updated, as and when there are changes in legislation, as well as a separate HR area for your management team, including guidance on employment law for your organisation.”

Further information on this service is available by contacting Palmers on 01268 240000.
