EMPLOYMENT LAW AND HR.
The lifeblood of any company is its people. Employers invest in their employees to make sure their business is working as well as it can be in terms of wellbeing, retention, profitability and efficiency. When lifting the bonnet on a business, HM3 Legal often finds one of two things: Either gaps where contracts or terms and conditions should be, or current documentation which is so out of date that it is failing to protect either the employer or the employees. Does this sound familiar? In each case short term compromises are risking the company’s day to day effectiveness, and exposing the business to avoidable risk. A common example is failing to update employee handbooks or policies leaving the company open to a legal challenge from an employee. Ask us about reviewing your current contracts or drafting new policies and agreements.
Our employment lawyers are well versed in providing short-term improvements and longer-term legal planning advice. Saves your managers or HR team feeling like they are going round and round in circles like a hamster on a wheel. That’s not the best use of anyone’s time. Ever.
We also offer legal support packages to support HR managers and training for company leaders covering the latest legal changes. This allows your entire team to be as effective as possible, handle employee queries, and know exactly where everyone legally stands.
One size does not fit all – accept nothing less than an individual service
You are an individual with particular needs unique to you and your situation. Through teamwork HM3 Legal’s lawyers take a 360 degree view of the legal aspects impacting every client – regardless of the initial legal question. And we don’t hide behind legal jargon.
For example, a long-standing healthcare client first approached us to navigate a complex joint venture between three established companies. It became immediately clear that our employment lawyers needed to work closely with each HR department to achieve a smooth transition. The shareholders appreciated our practical, straight talking and non-nonsense approach – and the human touch our lawyers have when handling emotionally-sensitive situations. In some cases HM3 Legal can provide bespoke training and ‘boots on the ground’ for clients with particular circumstances needing close attention.
Change is the only constant in business
HM3 Legal’s team of change management experts are often involved in tricky negotiations on behalf of clients. So before considering a merger, management buy-out or acquisition bring our business lawyers into negotiations early to manage employees and ensure the process is conducted legally and thoroughly.
For employers, we have a proven track record of handling director exits and shareholder disputes, business re-organisations, redundancy, and TUPE transfers.
And for employees, we negotiate settlement agreements, and disciplinary and capability queries. Legal support extends to offering employer Employment Tribunal services and acting for companies facing disruptive litigation and the major impact this can bring.
