Employment documents - Why you need a lawyer
Helping you properly document employment relationships with staff
Documenting employment relationships with your workers is an essential part of managing your workplace relations obligations. It is not always easy for employers to properly document employment relationships with staff. There are many legal obligations that must be followed. A lawyer can help you properly document these relationships in line with the legal requirements.
Ensuring you understand your responsibilities and obligations
If you are unaware of your responsibilities or obligations as an employer, it is important to seek legal advice. Your business may be at risk of significant financial recourse from not meeting your lawful obligations in full. We can help you understand what is required of you under employment law.
Assisting you in making adjustments to your employment documents
It is important to ensure all of your employment documents remain accurate and up to date. We can help you make changes to your employment documents to reflect any changes in the workplace such as any new company policies introduced into your workplace that your employees must be aware of.
