HR Advice

Do you need expert HR advice?

Absolutely. All employers, no matter their size, resources or sector, need to comply with the law. Following the letter of the law sounds easy, but without the know-how and experience of qualified legal advisers, you could find yourself with all sorts of questions.

Are my contracts of employment legally compliant? Am I handling this grievance in the correct way? Can I dismiss an employee who has been on long-term sick leave? What can I do about my high employee turnover? Am I conducting this disciplinary in line with ACAS best practice? How do I draft a settlement agreement? What are the risks from an Employment Tribunal claim?

To get answers to these types of questions, you need access to HR advice via a HR advisory service
