Employment law service

The AP Partnership’s employment law service is especially designed for those organisations where it is inappropriate to carry the overhead of an HR Manager or where they wish to have access to specialist expertise.

Your designated consultant will become directly involved with your company and its key personnel so that the advice provided is specifically relevant to your business.

This service includes

  • An audit of your policies & procedures to ensure compliance with current legislation

  • Tailor-made contracts of  employment & employee handbook to reflect your company’s terms and conditions of employment and policies and procedures

  • Your own personnel manual including advice and documentation to help you handle matters such as recruitment, absence, performance & disciplinary action

  • Telephone & email advice line to your consultant for help dealing with employment issues

  • Preparation of three compromise agreements each year

  • Onsite visits 

  • Updates of employment issues 

Optional add ons: 

Today, employers are increasingly recognising the benefits that can be obtained from outsourcing HR activities. The AP Partnership can assist companies in accessing a range of specialist services. 


We can provide a tailor-made solution for your one off projects giving you the flexibility to buy-in expertise, at a budgeted cost, as and when you need it. 

We have project expertise in the following areas:

Employment Tribunals

The AP Partnership handles a substantial number of Employment Tribunals a year, ranging from unfair dismissal through to discrimination cases. 

We deal with the preparation of the case and, where instructed, negotiate a settlement figure with the claimant's representative. If the case proceeds to employment tribunal, we will instruct experienced solicitors/barristers to ensure a high standard of legal representation. 


We can develop and deliver in-house, bespoke training courses in a wide range of management, supervisory and interpersonal skills in employment law and health and safety subjects. Knowledge of your company makes sure we use the right approach for your employees. 

Employer protection insurance

We provide Employer Protection Insurance that pays for the cost of defending a tribunal, settlements and awards. Please contact us for more information.
