Gullands launches new employment law protection service14.07.2012
A raft of employment legislation and greater employee awareness of their rights coupled with difficult economic circumstances has resulted in a significant increase in the number of employment claims being submitted to the Employment Tribunal Service in recent years.
To help local businesses minimise the potential for employment disputes and their consequences, Gullands is offering Gullands Sentinel. The innovative low priced service is provided by experienced employment solicitors Amanda Finn.
Amanda Finn explains: “Gullands Sentinel helps businesses avoid employment disputes by ensuring they are operating to the best standards of employment practice and procedures. In the event of an issue arising, direct contact with me will enable businesses to deal with any employment disputes swiftly and effectively.”
To reduce the likelihood of problems occurring in the first place, the same two solicitors will undertake a complete health audit of staff policies and employment contracts and any redrafting where necessary.
And if in spite of the support and advice provided an Employment Tribunal claim should occur, the Gullands Sentinel service includes an insurance policy which will provide cover for legal costs and most awards and settlements of up to £250,000 per claim.
Amanda Finn comments: “A successful claim against your business could be extremely damaging both in terms of the financial cost to, and reputation of, your business. Our service offers businesses the certainty and peace of mind of knowing that they have on hand expert advice, support and financial protection all for a low fixed annual fee”.
