Employer law advice and help
Running a business is hard work at the best of times, so if the worst of times should come along, it's important to get expert advice. Many companies turn to Peninsula when they need employment law advice, because since being founded in 1983, we have forged a reputation for impeccable service. The Peninsula team is made up of experienced individuals in the fields of health & safety, HR, and legal matters, ensuring we can offer the best service when it really matters.
For example, Peninsula employs qualified legal professionals, who can provide representation in an employment tribunal. By taking statements, checking the facts, briefing witnesses and researching the case, we ensure you are fully prepared for the tribunal process.
Peninsula also provides employer indemnity insurance underwritten by Irwell Insurance Co. Ltd. Peninsula Business Services Ltd is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority, for the sale of non-investment insurance contracts (Ref No 468574).
Our indemnity backed advice will help protect your business from the legal costs associated with Employment Tribunals.
Employment law advice whenever it is needed
Of course, the most important service we offer our clients is advice, pure and simple. Our employment law advice can cover redundancy, maternity, conduct, capability, or any other employment law matter affecting your business. Knowing what to expect and how to handle any of these situations could make all the difference, or even help you avoid a costly employment tribunal. When you need legal advice or an employment law solicitor in a hurry, employers can get 24 hour employment law advice over the phone. Knowing expert help is always just a phone call away would surely give any employer peace of mind.
Employment law seminars and training
Peninsula offers free employment law seminars to non-clients. At these events one of our qualified presenters will provide advice on any current or impending legislation that may affect your business. The complexities of employment law will also be illustrated by recent case studies, which are sure to stir up a little lively debate.
However, when you become a Peninsula client, you will be provided with bespoke employment law advice. This includes group training sessions covering the whole spectrum of employment advice, from HR to health & safety. This employment law training will prove particularly useful in light of recent changes to the law regarding pensions and retirement.
Employer law help in other areas
The employer law advice services offered by Peninsula extend much further than employment law emergencies; we can be integrated into your HR department to ensure efficiency and legality in the day-to-day running of your business. For example, our health & safety advice is perennially popular with businesses of all sizes. New clients will receive an on-site visit from one of our qualified experts. They will conduct a detailed inspection of your premises and your existing safety policy, identifying areas that should or could be improved.
Furthermore, our HR software is intended to facilitate the more mundane aspects of employer law. From monitoring absences to managing health & safety responsibilities and completing a fire risk assessment, the tools provided in the HR software package are ideal for employers who want to save time but still tick all the boxes. These tools are so simple to use that anyone in your company can be assigned to manage them, freeing up your HR department to focus on staff and strategy-based tasks.
One final aspect of employer law that we deal with is tribunals. Being served with tribunal papers is one of the scariest things that can ever happen to an employer – but we have been providing businesses with employment tribunal help since 1983, so you can rest assured you're in safe hands. Our tribunals service includes case research and preparation, representation at the actual tribunal hearing, and even indemnity insurance to cover the costs incurred.
