Introducing the family law workplace policy

Your workforce are the life blood of your business, so anything that affects your employees can have a direct impact on you and your business.

Employees who are going through a messy separation or divorce often lose the ability to concentrate, make mistakes and take time off. This can lead to a disturbed workplace, where productivity is reduced and colleagues have to pick up the slack.

Although there is no ‘magic wand’ that will make an employee’s separation or divorce go away, through the right methods the impact on both your employee and your business can be minimised.

Using collaborative law and mediation, your separating employees can reach agreed solutions to their separation issues rather than enduring the time, stress and expense of Court proceedings. This will help resolve issues quicker and minimise the impact on your business.

At Hopkins, we have developed a Workplace Policy on Personal Relationship Problems, which can be provided to your employees as part of your staff handbook. This details that you aim to support any staff going through a divorce/separation by providing access to a collaborative lawyer/mediator and that you will pay for their initial consultation (at a cost of £90).

By adopting a workplace policy to support your employees, you demonstrate that you are an employer who cares, which will no doubt be good for both staff retention and recruitment.

If you would like more information about the workplace policy or the benefits to your employees, please contact David Winnett.
