FJG Employ

At FJG we have assembled a unique menu of services for businesses who want to take the worry out of their Human Resources Management and Health and Safety compliance.

Many companies now offer outsourced HR services. These arrangements usually involve committing to long term contracts with often substantial monthly sums being committed for periods of up to three years. If a business wants to outsource its human resource function these arrangements can work well. However, not all businesses want to do this, but they do need occasional support for particular HR projects or in relation to their health and safety issues.

Our service is different. Fundamentally the difference is that YOU ONLY PAY FOR WHAT YOU USE. We can give you access to the whole range of business support services in relation to your business, your employees, and your health and safety issues at hourly rates which are discounted from our normal rates for these services.

In most cases, there will be a fixed fee for the initial work to “set you up” with all the necessary policies and contracts, and you then decide what you want us to do in addition, whether that be health and safety advice and support, (including audits) general human resources advice, or legal advice with regard to specific employees or problems. For ongoing legal support we can provide a helpline service, and if the helpline is not used then fees paid can be used towards other legal services to support your business.

You may be involved in taking a lease of commercial premises, you may want a shareholders agreement, or you might want us to advise on a contract you are entering into. You can pick from the whole range of legal services which we offer to support businesses.

Why pay out money for services you hardly ever use? With FJG Employ, you pay for what you get, and you get what you pay for. Now that is something different in the world of employment support packages.

Key Benefits

  • Discounted hourly rates for the work done;
  • Access to expert advice at all times during office hours, with the peace of mind that brings; and
  • You only pay for what you get. With helpline services any balance left at the end of the year is returned to you or used in relation to any other legal services you might need
