The Essential HR Document Starter Bundle

At HR and You Ltd we understand that not all business owners want to use the provision of a HR Outsourced provider when they first set up in business or when they have only 1 or 2 Employees, that is why we have produced our HR Essential Document Starter bundle, we also offer this same package with the addition of 12 months advice and guidance, please contact us if you would like to know more about this product.

This bundle is ideal for businesses who need a bit of a refresher on all of their documents or have not got anything in place just yet. It is also just the perfect fit for a start-ups and smaller business with less than 5 employees but will also suit businesses with up to 10. There is a lot of legislation in relation to employing people, so we have created a brilliant package that ensures you will have everything in place, up to date with the latest employment law and best practice, to safeguard both you and your employees.

Although this bundle is a template bundle the most important part of the documentation is the Employment Contract and for that reason, this document is fully compliant with the Good Work Plan, as with all of the other documents they are created to allow you to adapt to your business structure but provide extensive guidance on how to make it fit your needs. We have seen a variety of templates downloaded from google which have got some Employers into trouble, so we want to remove that risk and provide you with protection and importantly legal compliance.

The Essential HR Document Starter Bundle includes 15 documents:

  • HR Health Check (this is normally provided free of charge)
  • Employment Contracts
  • Conditional Offer of Employment Letter
  • Disciplinary Policy
