HR Best Practice, Approach and Processes

We provide both best practise advice and tailored documentation to assist our clients with their everyday human resource needs. Documentation can include customised contracts, policies, procedures, disciplinary sanctions, etc. 

Contracts of  Employment

The Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2018 provides that an employer is obliged to issue basic terms of employment within 5 days of commencing work while the Terms of Employment (Information) Acts 1994-2014 provide that an employer is obliged to provide an employee with a written statement of terms of employment within the first 2 months of the commencement of employment. The HR Suite provide customised contracts of employment for your Company, including all legally required terms. Alternatively, should your contracts already be in place The HR Suite can review to ensure legal compliance.

Policies and  Procedures

The Workplace Relations Commission has a Code of Practice on Grievance and Disciplinary Procedures which states that employers should have written grievance and disciplinary procedures. These procedures should be given to employees at the start of their employment. Under the Unfair Dismissals Acts 1977-2015 employers are required to give the employee in written notice of the procedures to be followed before an employee is dismissed. This must be done within 28 days of entering the contract of employment. Ctas can provide your business with customised policies and procedures including both legally required policies (disciplinary and grievance) and best practise essential policies. 

Disciplinary  Procedures

Ctas can facilitate the management of the disciplinary procedure to ensure adherence to fair procedures and the rules of natural justice in line with legislation.
