Annual Review of all Employment Literature

Send us your employment literature and we will provide a comprehensive review of all your documentation. All contracts and handbooks will be considered in line with all recent case law and legislative developments, as well as the needs of your business.

Contracts of Employment

We can assist you with preparing bespoke contracts of employment, tailored to your business needs.  We are experienced in dealing with a plethora of issues relating to contracts of employment, both simple and complex, so if you have any queries or concerns, no matter how small or large, we would be delighted to assist.

We can assist you with bespoke contracts of employment for overseas workers whether they are reps working in a seaside holiday resort, ski reps or specialist travel consultants; we are here to assist. We regularly advise on cross border and multi jurisdictional employment law matters.  We also have formal links with lawyers both across the EEA and internationally.

Homeworkers

With flexible working being an increasingly common feature in a modern workplace, we are seeing more and more employees (or self-employed individuals) working from home. Here at Travlaw HR we can guide you through the necessary procedures and considerations when it comes to homeworkers and also ensure that you have the correct paperwork in place.

Directors Service Agreements

We are familiar with the commercial background against which directors of travel businesses work. Our dedicated team of travel specialists are here to assist you with structuring bespoke Director Service Agreements. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Corporate Support / TUPE

Have you purchased a business? Are you selling a business? Perhaps outsourcing a function? You could have responsibilities to employees under the Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE) legislation. Dealing with these issues at an early stage can prevent costly errors arising later down the line.

Restrictive Covenants and Confidentiality

We can advise upon and draft suitable wording for agreements to minimise the impact of former employees departing from your business and setting up in direct competition; taking clients, customers and existing employees with them. Poorly drafted wording can be held invalid and unenforceable by a court, leaving your business high and dry. Are you personally subject to restrictive covenants? We can advise on the effectiveness of the clauses against you in employee or service contracts.

Confidentiality agreements or well drafted confidentiality clauses in employment contracts and service agreements are also particularly important in order to protect your sensitive commercial information. If you have confidentiality provisions in place now, we can advise you as to the protection they are affording you; alternatively, if you don’t, we can draft these crucial provisions for you.

Redundancy and Restructuring

In these unpredictable economic times, businesses in the travel industry need to remain flexible. Businesses may decide to reorganise for a number of different reasons. We can assist you with making sure your redundancy and restructuring process runs as smoothly as possible, whilst minimising the risk of costly claims. The Travlaw HR team balance in depth legal knowledge with commercial acumen. We can assist you with developing practical solutions to challenging issues.

Disciplinary, Dismissal, and Grievance Procedures

We can assist you with putting together comprehensive disciplinary policies and procedures which comply with the law and the ACAS code of practice. We can create bespoke packages, or assist you with keeping costs to a minimum, by offering packages including standard documents.
