Peninsula understands that it can be difficult for business owners and employers to keep up with legislation. For example, do you know the latest Employment Law updates? Are you sure you’re meeting your Health & Safety responsibilities?

Peninsula’s primary objective is the prevention of problems in the HRM area, including breaking down and explaining the often difficult-to-understand world of employment legislation and business protection. This includes HR, health and safety and employee wellbeing. Specialist consultants ensure all the necessary systems and procedures are put in place to prevent you getting into difficulty. We have a proven approach to protect you, your livelihood and your business.

If problems do arise we are available 24/7 with practical advice to get you out of trouble as quickly as possible.

New employment legislation, contractual requirements and case law precedents are being introduced frequently, and employers are expected to implement them immediately. Peninsula can give your business a safer, more certain future by cutting through the bureaucracy and red tape that surround personnel and employment law. Experienced teams will review your position and produce all of the documentation for a professional HR Management System, including management and employee handbooks to ensure that the organisation’s rules and procedures are available to all. Terms and conditions are kept up-to-date to suit our member’s needs and to take account of changes in legislation.

All advice given through the service is supported by an insurance indemnity, protecting your business against legal costs defending employment legislation claims and most unfair dismissal and unlawful discrimination awards.
