Employment manual

Employment Manual

The DAS employment manual has been designed to provide a comprehensive guide to employment procedures under UK law.

It is intended as a day-to-day guide to best employment practice in the most common areas of human resources and personnel management. You can access information on matters such as drafting employment contracts, recruitment, redundancy, and setting up disciplinary, grievance and absence procedures.

The manual also provides vital information on current employment legislation and guidance on subjects such as maternity and parental leave and the rights of part-time workers.

Please remember that employment is a changing area of the law, and this manual reflects the situation at the time of writing. The employment manual is updated regularly to reflect changes in the law, but there may be times when a part of the manual is out of date, so it is important to seek legal advice on specific matters. If you have a Commercial Legal Expenses insurance policy, you can do this by using our legal advice helpline.

REDUNDANCY APPROVAL COVER:

If you have redundancy approval cover please complete the Redundancy Approval Checklist (contained within the 'Redundancy' section below) and wait for your Redundancy to be approved by DAS before starting any process or procedure with your employees, as a failure to do so may invalidate your policy.

If you would like to be kept informed of future changes to the employment manual please email us at employmentmanual@das.co.uk, quoting your policy number, name and the email address you would like the updates sent to.
