With all the competing priorities of running a business, it’s easy to see why so many business owners find it difficult to stay on top of ever-changing employment law. Issues left unresolved can often become serious, and then a whole lot of valuable management time and cost is spent fixing the problem.
At Backhouse Solicitors we take a proactive approach, developing long-term relationships with our clients and putting in place the policies and management training necessary to minimise any future problems and protect the business. Where issues arise, our expert solicitors are there to provide practical advice and commercial solutions.
We started out as a specialist employment law practice and our team of employment lawyers help a huge range of businesses every year, from new start-ups to national and international businesses with thousands of employees. Unlike some of the large HR organisations however, we don’t believe in distant call centres, with unqualified staff following a script. You will get to know your Backhouse advisor well and when you need their help you can be reassured that they are properly qualified to give you sensible, commercial advice.
Business usually come to us for help in one of two areas:
- Employment Law Compliance – to update their policies and procedures, train their managers and answer day to day questions
- Employment Law Problem Solving – for help and advice when something has gone wrong, or is about to go wrong
In an ideal world, we like to help businesses with their compliance needs first, as that can prevent many of the problems we see every day. In reality we understand that many businesses only realise there is a compliance issue when a problem occurs, so we help fix the problem first and then address the compliance needs to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
