Could you benefit from extra HR advice for employers?
‘Our experienced consultants have the added advantage of the full support and knowledge of our expert solicitors behind them’
Maybe you’re not finding it cost-effective to have a dedicated in-house HR team. Maybe the HR resource that you have in-house is overstretched. Either way, many of our clients have faced similar issues and have turned to us for help with HR advice for employers.
Fully supported HR consultants
While many companies offer employment law advice via HR consultants, our experienced HR consultants have the added advantage of the full support and knowledge of our expert solicitors behind them. We can offer you a range of options:
- Outsourced HR
We can operate as a ‘virtual’ HR department, offering HR legal advice either remotely or on the premises. This is an ideal solution for expanding companies.
- HR projects
We can offer you an additional resource when you need it – either at your premises or based at ours –for instance during interviewing or investigating disciplinary issues.
- Interim management
You may need a longer or more regular period of HR advice for employers, for example to provide cover for maternity leave. Our consultants can ‘hold the reins’ for you, backed up by our employment law team.
