New starter documentation
It is absolutely essential that your HR documentation is accurate from day one and legally protects your business, minimising the risk of confusion or a dispute further down the line.
New starter documentation including a well drafted offer letter, a legally sound contract of employment and a clear and up to date job description is vital for ensuring new employees have a clear understanding of their employment terms and rights and their roles and responsibilities. Pre-employment checks should also be carried out to ensure your new hire can legally work for you and that you quickly and consistently get all the information you need to set a new starter up and start paying them.
Metro HR can help you create a new starter documentation pack and processes to help you carry out all of the necessary pre-employment checks such as right to work checks, obtaining references, checking qualifications, assessing any health or disability adjustments required and the drafting of offer letters and contracts. Alternatively, we can review your current documentation. Whether created or reviewed we would ensure it conforms with your company values and the latest legislation and industry best practices.
Once prepared, contracts of employment should be reviewed regularly to keep them up to date with legislation and make sure they continue to protect your business. Metro HR can review your contracts of employment at any time and make recommendations as appropriate.
