  • Contracts and Handbooks

    At AfterAthena we have experts on hand to inspect and correct all your vital documents to make sure you can move forward with confidence; knowing your contracts are fit for purpose.

    What are the consequences of having incorrect contracts in place?

    Failing to provide contracts to your employees could result in your company paying additional compensation on top of any compensation an employee may receive, if they are successful with a case against the business. Incorrect contracts can also lead to under or over paying employees as well as failing to protect business interests when an employee joins a competitor.

    When should you review your HR policies?

    Changes in UK employment legislation should mean changes in your policies. Your AfterAthena team will ensure all necessary contracts, policies and handbooks are updated immediately with the relevant changes.
