Our Specialist Employment Law Services

  • Writing Contracts. It is important to provide all employees with a contract of employment. We have a menu of all types of contracts to include director’s service agreements, temporary workers, apprentice and zero hour worker contracts. All of these contracts are available at a fixed fee. 
  • Fixed Fee Employment Tribunal Cover. We can offer you fixed-fee representation if a claim is brought against you at an Employment Tribunal.

Cardinus can provide your employees with e-learning modules covering a range of essential health and safety topics such as manual handling and fire safety.
