Local Councils

When you are running a busy Council you face many challenges: the intricate nature of the Council organisational structure, compliance, safety, regular changes in the law and time-consuming employee issues. These take you away from making your Council flourish.

Having worked with the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC) we recognise the importance of ensuring that you have the right policies and procedures in place to follow the law and best practice for Local Councils.

That’s why many Local Councils trust us.

Whether you face workplace challenges regarding employment policies, disciplinary matters, grievances, collectively agreed terms and employment status our Employment Law & HR experts will provide fast, practical and pragmatic support.

From a health and safety perspective, we understand your challenges: multi-sites, keeping members of the public safe, lone working, keeping old buildings safe and fire risk assessments up to date. Your Health & Safety experts will install a practical safety management system for you suited to your Council environment. We will work with you to keep your premises and working environments safe for your staff and customers. Our Consultants will identify your priorities, work with you to address them and can even act as one of your legally required ‘Competent Persons’.

As part of our full service offering, you can also benefit from our independent Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) for both Employment Tribunals and Protection from Prosecution in health and safety matters.

EW’s unique combination of expert support, unlimited help and fixed fees, supported up by our independent LEI gives you certainty of cost, peace of mind and more time to focus on achieving your Council objectives.

You can trust EW as your specialist Employment Law, HR and Health & Safety.
