Employment Relations Packages
We offer a diverse range of services for employee relations with various packages available to meet the needs of your business. Whether you require assistance with redundancies or dismissals, our experts can provide you with effective solutions. View our packages below or contact us for further information.
Contract VariationStarts From £675 Per Day
There are numerous occasions where we have guided employers through what may seem, on the surface, to be a straightforward process. If handled clumsily, there is a real risk of breach of contract or constructive unfair dismissal complications. We give precise guidance on how to structure variations to contracts. Timescale to agree terms could go from one day to several days.
DismissalStarts From £675 Per Day
You may have the most brilliant employees. However, 8% of employees create 92% of headaches in managing them. A parting company very often is not on mutual grounds. There are times when you will be faced with no alternative but to engage in a dismissal process. Get it wrong and it will be a costly minefield. We hold our clients’ hands to ensure they can navigate the terrain, minimising obstacles.
InvestigationsStarts From £675 Per Day
Be it a disciplinary or a grievance investigation, we have handled cases that can be concluded in two days to cases that run for several weeks depending on their complexity. In all cases, thoroughness is the watchword and that is what protects the company from costly errors which arise when the process is regarded as a ‘sham’.
RedundancyStarts From £675 Per Day
This is a tricky employment relations area. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies have had to do the unthinkable and reduce their workforce by going through the redundancy process. Where you are having to reduce your workforce by a few employees or significantly more, you want to conduct redundancies in the right way to protect your reputation. We assist with all stages of a redundancy process. Cost varies according to the number of employees who are at risk.
Settlement AgreementsStarts From £675 Per Day
At times, parting a company through a settlement agreement can be the most time-efficient and legally compliant way to end an employment relationship. We advise on how to do this effectively to minimise severance costs and protect the dignity of all concerned. Timescale to agree terms could go from one day to several days.
Tribunal SupportStarts From £675 Per Day
In the unlikely event that you are required to defend a tribunal claim, we work closely with one of our legal partners to obtain the most cost-effective service for you. Typically, we draft any non-legal documents, engage in relevant communications and work with you to secure an ‘out-of-court’ settlement, which is always the best option.

"At VEN Systems, three of our team had poor attendance records and two were not achieving the high performance we expect from our engineers. I write this testimonial after having worked with Yvonne Foster, of Lotus HR, over the last nine months which have involved these three members of staff being taken through disciplinary action. The bottom line has been that we have now seen two of these three staff members work much harder to recover their attendance and lateness, with one going on to achieve the best records in the latest review. The third disciplinary unfortunately led to the last member of the trio to leave, but importantly for the team, this was in recognition of his poor performance through the disciplinary procedures Yvonne had taken him through. Our engineers each work on different Microsoft technologies, and must achieve the highest certification within their discipline before working for VEN, so I was a little concerned that Yvonne would struggle to understand the highly technical work they must perform. However, before every disciplinary, Yvonne has researched the situation, and interviewed myself on key points. After every meeting, she has produced very clear minutes, and a strategised set of recommendations for us to discuss and select from. Not only has this saved myself days of work on each disciplinary, the results have always followed the strategy she laid out for us. With Yvonne, I know I have an extremely professional addition to our team, who commands respect from our staff, and is helping to drive performance as well as stabilising the business. I thoroughly recommend her."
Douglas Breaks, Managing Director, Ven Systems
"We are a global staffing company for IT and project solutions and pride ourselves on our integrity and professionalism. We seek to work and associate ourselves with similar integral businesses. With the continued increase of staff headcount and business expansion, we felt that we had a need to have more formalised HR practices and support. We wanted to ensure that our company adopted best practice in relation to HR so that our staff continued to feel valued and appreciated by Gibbs S3. We commissioned Lotus Human Resource to review and update our HR policies and to advise on good practices. Lotus work with key personnel to give expert advice when required. Over the year, Lotus’ expertise has helped us with a variety of people management issues. We have learnt about the correct approach to handling and managing staff capability issues.

"Lotus Human Resource have been our outsourced HR service provider for the past 12 months. We have just renewed our contract with them. They are highly responsive, in most cases resolving queries the same day. They are trustworthy, always dealing with us in an open, honest and transparent manner. I have found our consultants reliable, always delivering on promises. I have no hesitation in commending their services."
Michael Hall, CEO, Thebes IT Solutions
"I have worked with Yvonne Foster on a number of matters, one of which involved separating a particularly challenging employee from a company client. On that matter in particular, I found Yvonne to be a very accomplished HR professional who immediately gained a grasp of the overall situation and the issues which needed to be resolved in order to help move the matter towards a swift and satisfactory conclusion, which was ultimately achieved. Yvonne comes across as somebody who is sensitive to the business needs of her clients and who adopts a commercial approach to help ensure positive outcomes for those clients. Yvonne has the ability to express her thoughts and advice in a clear manner and has an aptitude for getting things done. She also works efficiently making her a pleasure to work with both from a client perspective and also from a lawyer's point of view. I have observed that Yvonne is empathetic towards her client's HR issues which makes the people for whom she works naturally well disposed towards her. I would not hesitate to recommend Yvonne to prospective business owners and managers as someone who is not only expert in her chosen HR field but also someone who is personable and easy to get along with."
