HR and legal support for employers in the UK

All employers – even if they have less than 10 employees - need HR and legal support for help with common workplace issues including:

  • what holidays, work breaks and sick pay their staff are entitled to;
  • how to deal with people who don’t turn up to work on time or who take lots of time off sick;
  • what they need to put in written contracts of employment, and the legal and HR policies their staff must have access to;
  • when they can take disciplinary action or legally dismiss employees;
  • what to do when staff are not performing well at their jobs;
  • how to respond when staff ask for flexible working hours or other changes to their terms and conditions;
  • what their legal obligations are to their staff over maternity leave, paternity leave, shared parental leave, and time off for family emergencies;
  • how to act lawfully and fairly when staff raise grievances about their working conditions or make allegations of harassment or discrimination at work;
  • what they need to do if they want to make people redundant, or change their job roles, terms and conditions, or pay rates.
