1 Employment Solutions from

2 Employment Solutions Employment Solutions from Gaby Hardwicke provides an affordable service to businesses of all sizes. It is tailored to meet their employment law needs whether through the supply of a bespoke suite of contracts, policies and other documents, access to unlimited advice and support from experts in the field or the provision of insurance cover against the costs of going to an Employment Tribunal and any awards that may be made, providing both peace of mind and budgeting certainty. Gaby Hardwicke were recommended to me by my accountancy firm, and I am very grateful for the recommendation. In particular, my recommendation is for Paul Maynard, whose no nonsense approach was refreshing. We felt that he listened to us right from the start and gave practical advice at every step of the way. The satisfactory outcome was in no small part due to his advice and although I hope we don t need a solicitor in the future, I would definitely return to Paul. Julian Smith, Managing Director, The IAM Group, London Our Ethos Employment Solutions is delivered by experienced specialist solicitors from our close knit team. It is headed up by Employment Law Partner Paul Maynard, who is recognised, in particular, for his work in the field of business protection. Unlike some of our competitors we will not sit on the fence. Our advice is not formulaic or conservative, telling you only what you cannot do or must avoid. On the contrary, our advice is clear and robust and aimed at achieving the commercial outcomes you desire. You will be left with a clear plan of the steps you can take to achieve those goals. We recognise that each business we help has different objectives. Some just want to be legally compliant; some want their workforce structured to give them maximum efficiency and flexibility; others want improved productivity and performance or to take action against specific members of staff.

3 Others may be concerned to protect themselves against unfair competition from departing members of staff or the misuse or removal of data or other forms of intellectual property. I would like to thank you in writing for your help and guidance over the past few months. I have found your technical knowledge exemplary and open approach second to none. Without your assistance I have no doubt a satisfactory outcome would not have been achieved and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to friends and clients. Thanks again. Simon Blowen, Positive Solutions Whatever your business needs our track record is in building long term trusted relationships that last - in some cases for generations. We will spend time developing a sound understanding of your business, your objectives and priorities, to ensure that our advice is both relevant and geared to achieving those strategic aims. Wherever possible you will deal with the same solicitor whenever you contact us. We understand that for you your business comes first and we will not make unnecessary demands upon your time. Unlike some HR advisors we do not identify problems and create obstacles - we provide solutions. Should the worst happen and a claim is made against your business, you will find that our representation is second to none. In any event you will take comfort in the knowledge that the often significant costs associated with an employment tribunal claim and any awards of compensation will be covered by the insurance element of the service. *

4 The Service There are four elements to Employment Solutions from Gaby Hardwicke: 1. Document Audit An audit of your employment contracts, handbook, policies and procedures. Where necessary these will be replaced and/or updated with our own bespoke suite of documents. We firmly believe that your documents should not solely be about compliance they should work for your business by providing maximum flexibility and protection, whilst making it clear to your staff the standards you expect them to attain. Changing terms and conditions of employment is not always straightforward and we will work closely with you and your staff to implement any changes in a positive way. 2. Updating Service It is increasingly difficult for businesses of all sizes to keep up to date with the ever-changing landscape of employment law. In an increasingly complicated and regulated world, however keyed in you are you need specialist advice from time to time. When it comes to employment issues, my first port of call is always Gaby Hardwicke. Ian Wakeford, Managing Director, St Leonards Motors Limited No other area of law has undergone as much change in recent years derived from European Directives and Regulations, domestic legislation or case law emanating on an almost daily basis from the Court of Appeal and the Employment Appeals Tribunal. We understand that you will not thank us for bombarding you with daily or weekly updates although key ones will be available through our social media outlets should you want them. Instead you will receive a comprehensive monthly bulletin of all significant changes in the field of employment law written in a practical and jargon-free style by our Employment team. Perhaps more significantly, and we believe uniquely, we will automatically send you updates to your contracts, policies and handbooks where and when they are affected by a change in the law together with step by step instructions on how to implement the changes. This means that your documents, following our initial audit, will always be current and compliant, without you having to give them any further thought.

5 3. Advice Service There are two levels of advice and assistance available to you: Blue Service You will have unlimited telephone and access to a specialist employment solicitor during normal business hours, on any aspect of employment law.* Whenever possible this solicitor will be the same key contact you will always deal with. In most cases advice will be available immediately but in any event our service levels are such that you will be contacted by a member of our team within the hour. Silver Service You will receive the Blue Service plus assistance with the drafting of documents (such as letters dealing with disciplinary and grievance issues, flexible working requests, performance concerns or redundancy or restructuring procedures). In addition you will be entitled to up to three meetings a year with your key contact. This can be used for example to discuss issues of particular concern, to develop a particular strategy, for in-house training or for assistance with the conduct of disciplinary, grievance, performance or even redundancy meetings. 4. Employment Tribunal Insurance You will have the comfort of knowing that, provided you consult with us and take our advice, you will have insurance cover from one of the most respected insurers in the legal expenses market, against the legal costs associated with defending any employment tribunal claim and any awards made by a tribunal against your business* up to 250,000 per claim ( 1 million aggregate in any one year of insurance). We will continue to have conduct of any claim brought against you but our fees will be paid by the insurance company. The average cost of defending an employment tribunal claim is just over 10,000. Tribunal awards for all forms of discrimination and some types of unfair dismissal claims are unlimited and can have a devastating impact upon the cashflow of any business.

6 The insurance policy will also provide your business with cover in the event of a criminal prosecution being brought against it by the Crown Prosecution Service or Health and Safety Executive or for claims under the Data Protection Act Some Important Exclusions There are some exclusions (*) to the Service such as TUPE advice, collective consultation and trade union recognition, pensions advice, claims for breach of post termination restrictive covenants and/or directors duties but we can offer advice and assistance on all of these issues outside our Employment Solutions service. Full details of what is, and is not included are available in our terms and conditions. With Gaby Hardwicke first class legal advice is given; strategic thinking is what sets them apart from other law firms. Ian Casselden, Managing Director, Interface Devices Limited Affordability Employment Solutions is designed to be an affordable, fixed price service regardless of the size of your business. It is not a one size fits all product, as the advice and updating service and the insurance premium is predominantly based upon the number of employees on your payroll. You can control the amount you pay by deciding the level of the advice service i.e. blue or silver or by increasing the amount of any excess under the insurance policy. It is also kind to your cash flow - the fee and the insurance premium can be paid in twelve monthly instalments, with no interest penalty. About Us Gaby Hardwicke is an award winning, Legal 500 firm, based on the Sussex Coast. Having been established over 125 years ago we pride ourselves on specialist expertise, a different perspective and innovation.

7 Thank you so much. My observations are this is spot on. Your professional and prompt response (as always) is much appreciated. Den Edwards, Berforts Group Limited Central to the culture of our offices and staff is the pursuit of excellence designed to ensure that our standards of advice and service are second to none. We have assembled teams of lawyers, all of whom are experts within their fields, and who are focused, solely, on achieving the best possible outcome for our clients. By regularly dealing with a specialist area of law each of our lawyers is fully aware of current thinking and practice and is able to provide cost effective advice as well as practical solutions.
