Unlike remote employment helpline services, our lawyers are local to your business and will meet with you at the outset of the retainer service to get to know your business inside and out. This personal service ensures that you don’t have to explain the background each time you contact us. You are guaranteed consistency of advice safe in the knowledge that your correspondence with us is protected by legal advice privilege – this is not always the case with advice received from external HR consultants. Furthermore our experts are not bound by regimented scripts which are so often features of helpline services. In addition, we will not refuse to provide advice if you do not follow the correct procedures, unlike a lot of the HR and insurance-backed advisory services, who provide legal advice to employers but only on ‘their terms’.
Our fixed fee can be paid either monthly or annually to suit your needs and we will then provide personal advice and assistance, as and when issues arise. This means that you are less likely to find yourself in a situation of dealing with an Employment Tribunal claim with all the cost and management time that can involve. We can also provide a review of your current practices, make you aware of any changes in the law and provide all the support and reassurance you need, without you having to worry about receiving a bill for an unknown amount.
