Employment Law Coronavirus Update
We know that as an employer these are very stressful and worrying times for you and your staff. We are here to help as best we can. To be able to assist you over the coming weeks and months all of our appointments can now take place over the phone.
Our Employment Law team are working successfully from home, with full access to the systems they need, so minimal disruption to our service is anticipated. Our main switchboard will continue to operate as normal and the vast majority of our normal administrative functions will still operate.

We have put together a Disciplinary Action Guide for Employers featuring procedures, problems and grievances.
