Supporting employers in South Wales and surrounding areas
Introducing Peter Grace, your local Regional Business Director, and the Ellis Whittam team, who have been helping businesses across South Wales and nationwide through a multitude of workforce issues and compliance challenges created by the pandemic – from furlough to absenteeism, refusals to work and, sadly, redundancy.
With the help of our Employment Law Advisers, Peter will be running a series of completely free webinars, as well as giving away free guides, templates and checklists to help you optimise your workforce in 2021.
Sign up to the free webinar below or, if you would like a free consultation with Peter to discuss your specific situation and the support available, leave your details using the form opposite and he will be in touch.

We moved our legal support to WorkNest (formerly Law at Work) having previously used a time and line law firm. It was important, though, that an all-inclusive fee structure did not come at the expense of quality. Thankfully we’ve been delighted with the service we’ve received from WorkNest.”
What we recognised in WorkNest is the background that they have. They are able to supply knowledge and experience in a number of disciplines, which enables us to develop our business in a way that’s safe, to do it on time and with a quality to it.”
