Staunton Rook are a marketing and graphic design agency based in Chester. They are a small team but very passionate and completely dedicated to what they do. Staunton Rook came to us to discuss their contract of employment which hadn’t been reviewed for a little while. They were conscious of changes to employment law and wanted to ensure they were compliant as well as having the necessary policy documentation in place to meet their duty of care to their employees and to keep things as simple and clear as possible for their team.
We had an initial meeting to understand the requirements and to get to know a little more about the company and how they operate, their usual style etc. We then put forward a proposal to Staunton Rook of what we thought they needed and what would benefit them as a business – we were completely honest with them and didn’t want to try to sell them something that we really didn’t believe they needed.
As a result, we did a full review of the existing employment contract and rewrote this to ensure it was legally compliant and applied some best practice as to what should be included and which elements to remove / revise. We also created a couple of key policies for them to introduce alongside their revised contract in order to make things clear and simple for both the employer and employees in terms of expectations and procedures to follow in certain circumstances.
It was a pleasure to work with Staunton Rook, they were clear and concise, provided the detail we required and then entrusted us to complete the work for them. We hope to be able to work with them again in the future.
