Experts in Employment Law & HR

Having worked with the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC) we recognise the importance of ensuring that you have the right policies and procedures in place to follow the law and best practice for Local Councils.

We understand some of the common workplace challenges Local Councils face. We support employers with a whole range of employment issues, including:

  • Frequent short-term absences;
  • Long-term sickness absence;
  • Theft;
  • Wage deductions;
  • National Minimum Wage;
  • Misconduct;
  • Disciplinary action;
  • Grievances;
  • Dismissal; and
  • Disputes between employees.

Our qualified Employment Law and HR experts will provide fast, practical and pragmatic solutions to save you time and money.

Experts in Health & Safety

Our qualified consultants understand the pressure on charities to keep employees, volunteers and members of the public safe. Whether you operate from a shop, call centre or an office, we will help you to take a sensible and proportionate approach to reduce the risks associated with:

  • Managing volunteers;
  • Events and non-domestic premises;
  • Lone workers;
  • Slips, trips and falls;
  • Manual handling;
  • Working at height;
  • Fire;
  • Stress; and
  • Musculoskeletal disorders.

We believe that third sector organisations shouldn’t have to choose between great charity work and safe charity work. With a wealth of experience in the voluntary sector, our consultants offer realistic advice and support to protect your organisation against financial and reputational risk – without compromising your ability to deliver on key objectives or creating a barrier to volunteering activities.
