Legal support service
Support for you with legal issues and employment law
Legal support service
Irwin Mitchell are leading experts in employment law cases. Their specialist solicitors can provide practical advice and guidance on various legal matters, taking the pressure off your business. Our HR support service allows you to focus on your company, leaving legal matters to the experts.
Working closely with your HR department, Irwin Mitchell can advise on HR best practice and be an extension of your in-house team. If you’re a small business, the service can even act as an outsourced HR function.
For a fixed monthly fee, you’ll have access to your own dedicated employment law solicitor via the IMhrplus service. They’ll be on-hand to answer all of your queries, and will work closely with your business to ensure that issues are dealt with quickly and effectively.
You’ll benefit from:
- Direct access to your dedicated employment law solicitor
- Strategic expertise that you wouldn’t otherwise have access to
- An audit of your existing legal contracts and policies, along with recommendations for amendment/improvement where appropriate
- Identifying potential risks before they become business risks
- Invitations to relevant training programmes
- Legal updates in handy monthly email bulletins
Legal support benefits to your employees:
As part of the IMhrplus service, your employees will also have access to IMhrplus Privileges – an online discounts website with hundreds of offers on well-known brands. From the weekly shop, to days out with the kids, this helps to make your employees’ pay go that bit further.
Optional Employment Tribunal insurance:
If you do experience an Employment Tribunal claim, Irwin Mitchell can support you and defend the claim for you through a comprehensive insurance policy which is provided by the blue-chip insurer, AXA. This is something worth considering, as Employment Tribunal cases can be costly for businesses that don’t have insurance protection.
Personal legal support for your employees:
Irwin Mitchell can also help your employees directly. Their employee-funded will writing service encourages your employees to take legal responsibility of their finances, helping to save time, money and upset in the event of death.
Irwin Mitchell can also arrange a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) that sets out an employee’s wishes if they become unable to decide for themselves.
