Legal Compliance

A well-established Leeds building merchant with 25 staff needed services to keep them running smoothly, maintain legal compliance and protect the business in the face of grievance and disciplinary issues. Clockwork drew up official contracts and job descriptions for the company to use going forward, standardising the paperwork, simplifying the administration process and adding professionalism to the way the company operated.

On-going Support

A 70-strong company specialising in elderly homecare needed a package including contracts, handbooks and on-going support with a range of employment-related issues. Clockwork produced all documentation and provide telephone and email support since. We also worked with the client to deliver a series of training workshops that now help managers deal quickly and effectively with future issues in accordance with current employment law.

Handling Redundancy

When a northern commercial developer needed to make two employees redundant, they contacted Clockwork for advice on how to carry out the procedure efficiently, fairly and in line with legal requirements. Although lots of general information on redundancy was available from a variety of sources, Clockwork was able to provide a highly personalised service shaped around the specific circumstances of this particular case.

Staff contracts

When a local restaurant needed staff contracts updating, the restaurant’s new manager enlisted the help of Clockwork. The team at Clockwork conducted a thorough review and update of existing contracts as well as drawing up new job descriptions to cover some recently created positions within the restaurant business.

Taking on staff

After two years in business, a Yorkshire-based computer repair specialist wanted to take on his first member of staff to help with an expanding workload resulting from the growth of his business. For a one-off fee Clockwork visited the sole trader and explained the ins and outs of employing someone, with a focus on the business owner’s legal responsibilities.
