HR & Employment Law
The majority of our clients work on a retainer service. Saving them on the overheads as well as ensuring they can fully utilise all of our services. We also offer an Ad-Hoc service.
Employment Law is something which requires a bit of maintenance. Keeping up to date often needs a proactive legal consultant who can advise you as you make your way through the various HR issues a business might face. That’s why we think it’s imperative to offer retained services - a rolling contract that means we can be on hand at any time, whenever you need some expert input or feel it’s time to review your current policies and contracts.
Basic Compliance Package
Basic by name, but not by nature - our first retention package gives you a flexible level of support and cost. This package includes legal and compliance
consultancy on contracts, plus disciplinary and grievance procedures. You’ll also receive a documentation pack of relevant forms including an application form, an absence form and a leavers form among others. The Basic Compliance Service is the ideal legal package for new
businesses and start-ups.

As the name suggests, this retainer service package is perfect for small businesses. You’ll be given access to one of our expert consultants, who’ll guide you through the world of employment law. You’ll get everything the Basic Compliance Service offers, plus a full employment legislation health check to establish a baseline. You’ll also be given a direct phone line for advice and assistance on everything involving Employment Law and HR.
