Employment Law & HR Specialists
Your "one stop shop" for Employment Law and HR advice. We provide specialist employment law advice to businesses of all sizes throughout the UK. Protect your business from financial damage and negative publicity with fixed-cost legal advice, representation, training.
Day to day advice on any HR legal issues that can cause business owners and HR managers severe headaches. From "inappropriate banter" to performance and health/disability issues. Make sure you stay on the right side of the law from the start.
Often, your internal HR team will carry out investigations into disciplinary issues, allegations of bullying and harassment etc.
Sometimes, however, where the issues are particularly complex or sensitive, it is best for the investigation to be carried out by a specialist firm.
We will work with your HR team, and your existing lawyers if they are involved, and will make sure the work is carried out swiftly and efficiently.
Also, we can often make use of “legal privilege” to protect against the obligation to disclose all relevant documents if the matter results in a claim or an individual makes a Subject Access Request.
