Unlimited advice for a fixed cost
Maitland Walker’s employment team offers the firm’s clients a bespoke human resource and employment advice service.
As a result of employees’ increasing awareness of their employment rights and the ever more litigious world that we inhabit, employers have recently been forced to incur substantial human resources expenditure and along with it, ever increasing legal fees. Recent surveys have indicated that this cost to corporate organisations is estimated to equate to approximately 5% of their overall turnover.
With this in mind, Maitland Walker’s employment team offers a mentoring service to the firm’s clients. That close relationship and experience of each of the firm’s client’s specific requirements enables the team to retain unrivalled proximity to the needs of each individual business.
We can assist our clients with disciplinary and grievance procedures along with providing more general guidance on the effective management of their staff. In our experience, this makes our clients’ businesses more productive and harmonious, in tandem with helping prevent costly and time-consuming litigation.
This 24-hour service also enables Maitland Walker’s clients to build a fixed cost into their balance sheets and in some cases, the ability to effectively out-source their human resources requirements altogether. In so doing, this enables the firm’s clients to factor in a fixed cost without any concern regarding any additional and unexpected legal fees, should litigation actually materialise. Should Tribunal litigation arise, the defence of any proceedings can also be included within Maitland Walker’s annual fixed-fee.
Maitland Walker’s clients find that an additional benefit is the ability to pay the annual fixed-fee by way of a monthly direct debit payment.
Should you wish to discuss the possibility of engaging Maitland Walker’s employment team on this basis, or any other, please contact Nick Rowe.
