Employment Law and HR
No HR team? No problem
Most small businesses don’t have the luxury of an in-house HR team. Without this knowledge and expertise to lean on, you might not feel confident or equipped to approach employee issues. You may also be working with outdated policies and contracts.
This can provide a breeding ground for people management problems, costing you time and money and putting your business at risk of legal trouble. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
WorkNest Law blends legal expertise with commercial awareness so that you can be confident in managing all your people challenges.

Group HR Director, Culina Group
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.”
