Why Employline

Developed and delivered by qualified solicitors from leading law firms across the UK, as an Employline client you can be confident that your business is in the safe hands of a legal professional. Discover the full features available to the businesses that partner with us below.

Saving you time and money

Drafting and updating your employment documents, contracts, policies and procedures can take up a lot of your precious time; time that could be better spent in other areas of your business. Outsourcing to a specialist to draft these could help, but may quickly rack up expensive fees with lengthy amends and constant revisions as the law changes.

Employline’s online library is continuously updated and reviewed by a qualified solicitor to ensure that all ready‐to‐use documents are fully compliant; simply sign in to the Employline portal to find exactly what you need, when you need it.

Some of the documents you will find in our database include:

  • A guide to conducting disciplinary investigations and hearings
  • Flexible working request checklist
  • A full guide to parental leave and working parents
  • The complete suite of documents required for redundancies and dismissals
  • Ready-to-use templates for offer letters, contracts, terms of employment and staff handbooks.

Protecting your business, and your peace of mind

Employment issues can appear at any time. Grievances, absence management, disciplinaries, dismissals, redundancies ‐ not being prepared can make an unexpected event even more stressful than necessary. Even things that may seem simple, such as flexible working requests, maternity leave or holiday accrual queries can sometimes throw you for a loop.

Avoid expensive consultant fees and unexpected hourly bills with access to your own dedicated employment solicitor.

Specialist sector knowledge

Not all industries are the same, and some sectors come with their own set of unique challenges. The team at Employline has specialist knowledge of these employment issues for a multitude of sectors, including:
