Employment Law Helpline

When you have a challenging HR or Employment law issue, you need answers to your countless questions.

The best way to get solutions is to call an Employment Law helpline or Employment Law advice line.

Having an Employment Law company at the end of the phone means you can receive in-depth advice, obtain a second opinion or get a response to any quick query. Your Employment Law expert can give you the peace of mind that you are on the right track and acting in compliance of the law, and can also offer pragmatic guidance when deciding on a long-term strategic approach.

Not all Employment Law Helplines are created equal

Free or low-cost Employment Law helplines can help when you find yourself in a tricky situation. They can provide you with the answer to a question or give you generic information to help you understand the law.

There are also call centres. You may first speak to a front-line adviser who will be able to answer enquiries and then pass you on to someone else if the circumstances are complex or involve careful analysis of the law.  

Right solution?

However, neither of these options are particularly good for your organisation.  The reality is that using these types of Employment Law helplines may mean:

  • There may be long waiting times to get through to someone.
  • You may be passed from one department to the next to try and get answers to even the most basic of enquiries.
  • You will be passed to the next available adviser, not one who understands your organisation or sector.
  • You don’t know who you are talking to – are they CIPD qualified? Are they an expert? Are they just reading off a script?
  • You won’t speak to the same person each time, so you have to explain your situation over and over again.
