Modus Employment includes

Advice

As a Modus member you will have direct access to our team of employment solicitors whenever you need advice. Your key contact and the team will develop an ongoing relationship with you and your business.

Our experience means that we will have helped other clients with similar problems, so we can advise you on practical solutions with the benefit of this experience. We tell you what you can do, not what you can’t do.


Document health check

At the start of your Modus membership we will carry out a health check of your existing employment documents. Following the review, we will provide you with any new or updated documents that you need.

Unlike many other schemes, we will provide you with documents that match your specific needs rather than giving you generic documents for you to adapt yourself.


Modus Manual

Through our online Modus Manual you’ll have access to up-to-date template letters and policies, guidance notes and step by step guides whenever you need them and we’ll help tailor these to your needs.

These documents range from letters inviting employees to disciplinary hearings, guidance notes on how to manage sickness absence through to template documents to deal with flexible working requests.


Employment Tribunal insurance

Modus membership gives you the option of adding legal expenses insurance cover. The insurance protection will cover your organisation against the legal costs of defending Employment Tribunal claims and any compensation that might be awarded against you. If the claim is settled, the settlement amount is also covered.

If you are faced with an Employment Tribunal claim, the insurance cover will allow us to continue to act for you without you incurring any further legal costs.


Restrictive covenant enforcement insurance

If you have restrictive covenants in your employees’ contracts of employment (for example, to prevent a senior manager from approaching your clients after they leave) you can also add the benefit of insurance protection to cover the legal costs of enforcing these covenants in court. If your employees know that you have this insurance cover, it can be a real deterrent.


Health and Safety prosecution insurance

If you need it, Modus membership gives you the option of adding the benefit of health and safety insurance to cover legal fees to defend against health and safety prosecutions.


Seminars and training

As a Modus member we’ll guarantee you a place at our hugely popular seminars and master classes.


Employment law updates

As a Modus member you’ll automatically be registered for our regular light legal updates and monthly legal updates. We’ll also provide you with specific updates to your employment documentation and guidance when you need it.


Advice on commercial law

As a Modus member, if you have a commercial legal issue, our team of commercial solicitors will provide an initial consultation free of charge.


Discounts for your employees

As an added benefit for your employees, we’ll give them a discount for writing their wills or conveyancing fees as well as a free initial consultation on family or divorce problems.
