There is a third way...
Our primary employment relations consultant, James Hazel, has been head of the employment department at two regional law firms and now offers an all round support service for employers in the UK. With a focus on the practical side of human resources, James provides a third way for organisations who want employment lawyer expertise at HR consultant prices.
Training and Seminars
Interactive and engaging, our seminar programme aims to cut through the red tape and deliver effective and pragmatic advice for employers, tackling hard questions head-on and not skirting round the edges of abstract advice.
GDPR Training and Compliance
You know the headlines. You know the risks. You know what you need to do. Let us help you avoid the pitfalls and build your compliance framework.
Employment and HR advice service
If your business was based on a series of machines that churned out money (stop drooling) then we bet you'd oil them, service them, maintain them and do everything you could get them working at an optimal level. Chances are, you don't have any such machines, but you do have staff. Getting the right support is critical - our team have vast experience of dealing with complex disciplinaries and grievances, contractual issues, discrimination and work place disputes.
The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 remain one of the most misunderstood and mythical pieces of legislation in existence. Our 'TUPE guru' will help you separate the facts from the fiction and regularly represents organisations in TUPE negotiations.
Employment Tribunal Representation
We hope you never get to this stage, but it happens to the best of businesses (sometimes more than once!). Cost is a key consideration, and an employment tribunal is a complicated and unforgiving process. James Hazel has established himself as clinical advocate and an effective strategist. Please note: we do not take on claimant cases.
Policies and Contract Drafting
The right documentation framework is essential to an effective holistic approach to HR. Our team have been drafting contracts and policies for over a decade and have developed a precise, no-nonsense approach to drafting, from one-off specialist policies to complete handbooks and contracts of employment.
Dealing with staff can be stressful, painfully slow and cripplingly disruptive, especially for smaller businesses. Sometimes, it's just easier to get someone else to do it. Our team are experienced in carrying out investigations, chairing disciplinary hearings or appeals, hearing and resolving grievances and carrying out workplace mediations across a range of sectors and industries.
James Hazel is a CEDR accredited mediator with vast experience of resolving employment and HR disputes in a pragmatic and fair way. See our information on Mediation for more information
