HR Advisory Service
Available through our sister company Judicium Education, this Employment Law & HR Advisory Service is designed to support Catholic schools comply with the legal requirements imposed upon them as Employers. There are numerous sources of employment law and regulations which give rise to a myriad of HR related issues that need to be managed by schools. Judicium Education are there to support you.
Consultation with HR Adviser
An initial visit to your school by one of our employment lawyers – usually a former solicitor/barrister previously in private practice. The purpose of this visit will be to familiarise him/herself with your school, to discuss any employment related issues you may have that need resolving, and to review your existing employment contracts, documents and policies.
Employment Law Adviser
Advice from an experienced employment law advisor by telephone and email on all employment law related matters. This includes advice on day-to-day matters such as disciplinary hearings and grievance investigations, as well as the more complex areas such as restructuring and redundancy.
Policies & Procedures
Following our initial review, your employment contracts, policies and procedures will be drafted from scratch to form an Employment Handbook and other documentation. Alternatively, if your current documentation is suitable, we will amend or re-draft existing policies and procedures as far as necessary to improve management and comply with latest requirements in view of changes brought about by statute or case law.
We will happily review and if necessary re-draft any employment law related document or correspondence you have drafted either independently or using templates supplied by us. An example of this might be a letter asking a teacher to attend a disciplinary meeting.
Following the initial visit listed in paragraph one, each subsequent year one of our advisers will visit your school at a time of your choosing. This visit can be used for any purpose including matters where you prefer to have onsite assistance such as redundancy meetings or complex disciplinary hearings.
Employment Hearing Attendance
If a governor panel needs to be convened for any HR-related hearing (e.g. appeal, grievance, disciplinary etc.), a Judicium HR advisor shall attend to assist and support the governors during the hearing, if Dismissal is one of the possible sanctions, at no additional fees.
