When you are running a business, there never seems to be enough hours in the day. 

You know that managing your HR and Employment Law should be a priority. However, you just don’t have the time to dedicate to it. One effective solution is to outsource Employment Law.

If you have no or little idea of how best to deal with a challenging situation with an employee, and take action without seeking employment law advice, you could land yourself in front of an Employment Tribunal.

Challenging issues could include:

  • Misconduct
  • Disciplinaries
  • Redundancy
  • TUPE

Rather than risk approaching these employment law situations incorrectly, consider outsourcing employment law matter totalking about – the experts.

4 reasons why outsourcing Employment Law makes good business sense

Dealing with your HR and employment law challenges can involve an endless amount of time, resource, money and paperwork.

Outsourcing employment law relieves that burden and allows you to focus on revenue-generating tasks, work on your business strategy and achieve your objectives.


Do you know how to handle complex grievances? Are you aware of the procedure to follow if an employee commits an act of gross misconduct? Do you know whether you can dismiss someone who is on long-term sick leave?

If not, rather than muddle your way through and get it wrong, outsourcing Employment Law to experts can minimise the risks of Employment Tribunals claims and give you the confidence and support you need to deal with all your day-to-day workplace challenges.

With Ellis Whittam, you will be assigned a small team of named Employment Law experts, who will provide as much help as you require with day-to-day employment law and HR-related challenges. We take the time to get to know your business and the specific challenges you face so that we can function as a trusted extension of your team.

The laws do not remain static – they constantly change and it’s not always easy to keep up to date with what’s happening.

To take the pressure off, our experts will keep tabs on legislative developments. They will make sure that your Employee Handbook policies and Contracts of Employment are clear, robust and legally-compliant. This will reduce reputational and financial risk by ensuring that you are fulfilling your legal obligations and avoiding costly mistakes.

It’s a cheaper alternative to delving deep into your pockets to hire a team of HR and Employment Law experts and giving them all the resources and space they need.

Our fixed-fee outsourcing solution allows for cost certainty and enables you to budget accordingly. 

This is a stark difference to using an employment law solicitor.
