Who are we?
Newman HR is a personalised employment law advice and human resources consultancy providing a bespoke service catering to the needs of companies, associations, public concerns, charities in the small and medium size business sector. We focus in telling our clients what they can do safely, handling all aspects of HR and employment law including tribunal representation.
We are business people not lawyers; we have run our own businesses so we fully understand the conflicting pressures facing small companies and their owners. We have been established since 2006. Our services and advice are backed by a professional indemnity policy.
Why you should contact us?
Industrial tribunal proceedings being taken against organisations are becoming more common. There were over 187,000 in 2011/12 (latest available statistics) with an average unfair dismissal award of over £9,133. Tribunal awards can now be in excess of £74,000. Awards in discrimination or whistleblowing cases are unlimited. Your employees tend to know more about your legal rights than you do. Redundancy and dismissal are governed by a legal process. If you don’t follow the correct procedure it can be costly and time consuming. A mistake in administering a procedure or process can be expensive in both money and time. Discrimination claims are becoming more common they can be avoided by having suitable policies.
What can we do for you?
Newman HR specialize in providing SME companies with employment documents which comply with the latest legislation. We concentrate in preparing contracts of employment, compromise agreements, developing hand books and handling discipline, absence, capability, discrimination and conduct issues. We also advise conduct issues. We also advise clients on TUPE issues. Our clients are able to contact us on a 24/7 basis to obtain advice tailored to the issues they face and to guide them through the employment law minefield.
We have successfully carried out restructuring exercises for our clients.
