Hi Team,
I work as an HR Manager for an ITes company with a strength of 500 employees, based out of Bangalore.
I was formulating the Employee Handbook with all the HR Policies and there came the need of vetting the policies'.
1) Is it mandatory to get a Corporate law firm vet the policies
2) If so, could you please suggest me few Legal Statutory Compliance (Corporate Law firms) firms who could help me with the same.
3) Else could you guide me as to what would be the procedure
Thanks in advance.

Dear Shwetha,

There are two sets of HR policies. First one derived labour laws applicable, especially, arising out of Karnataka Shops and Establishment Rules, 1963. Second one is for running internal administration of the company. Before going for the first one, let me ask you whether you have framed standing orders? As such you have 500 employees working in your company. Therefore, it is important for you to have standing orders.

To design standing orders, you may or may not hire services of lawyer who handles cases of labour laws. Otherwise even labour consultant also may suffice the purpose. Labour consultant's may or may not be lawyer however, forever they keep on visiting labour offices and overall they know the psychology of the labour officers.

For other set of policies, you may hire services HR Consultant. For labour consulting services, feel free to approach me. I will provide you the contact details.
