We can help you with…

  • Employment – achieving a good relationship with your employees is crucial, particularly in a smaller organisations where employees can be the life blood of the services you provide to customers and beneficiaries. Much of the employment relationship is governed by legislation and is subject to frequent change due to European and political influences. We can help you with employment contracts, staff handbooks, policies and procedures, resolving disputes and problems, handling TUPE transfers, restructuring and redundancies.
  • Health and Safety – it is important to comply with your responsibilities to employees, volunteers and service users by putting in place the necessary policies and risk assessments. We can help you get your documentation in order to ensure compliance.
  • Data Protection – the penalties for improper handling of other people’s personal data have become more draconian recently as the Information Commissioner seeks to crack down on data breaches. We can help you assess the risks and put in place the required policies and procedures to protect your organisation.
  • Company law – the privilege of limited liability and charitable status comes with a corresponding obligation to file information, annual returns and accounts by specified deadlines with the regulator. Fines for non-compliance are usually automatic. We can help you ensure compliance.
  • Consumer protection rules – if you are selling goods and services, there is an increasing volume of legislation covering terms and conditions, rights of consumers to cancel and the standards expected of goods and services. We can help you navigate the rules and put in place compliant processes.
  • Licences and permits – many organisations need licences and permits to cover different aspects of their operations, ranging from music, entertainment and alcohol licences, food safety to planning and environmental consents. We can help you navigate the application process and deal with any problems you may encounter.
