The expanded service will build on the Firm’s existing expertise and offer additional services in HR advice.

The service promises to offer professional, commercial and trusted advice that employers can rely on and will be based upon a flexible, cost-effective, retained service or offered as discrete one-off solutions.

At its core, the HR advisory service will assist clients to manage staff capability, along with performance, grievances, disciplinary matters and redundancy. It will also advise on the preparation of staff contracts, employment handbooks, policies and contractual terms and conditions including maternity, paternity and redundancy rights.
