Employment Law for Businesses

HR Advice & Employment Law for Business

Coronavirus has left businesses owners and HR Managers inundated with questions regarding furlough, redundancy and parental leave.

Verisona Law can support your business through restructure, mass redundancies and organising furlough leave through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

Coronavirus continues to have a huge impact on businesses, which is why we’re offering a free 20-minute telephone consultation to discuss any issues employers might be facing at this difficult time.

Legal support

Employment law for business is constantly changing and is becoming ever more complex, with legal pitfalls even for businesses that do their best to act within the law. If you lack the in-house legal resources to cover this, or are simply busy, we can provide the solution, by reviewing and developing your policies and practices, in line with your business and the law.

Being a good employer should be part of business strategy and we can help you add this dimension to your plans, by bringing years of HR experience to the table. Additionally we can advise you on sensitive issues such as redundancy programmes, employee grievances, tribunal claims and terminating employment.

I was recommended to Verisona Law by a friend who is a property lawyer with regard to an employment issue. My initial phone conversation and following meeting and phone queries were dealt with in a relaxed, but, informed manner. Nothing seemed too much trouble. I would recommend Verisona Law to anyone who is seeking employment advice.

Sue was easy to deal with and offered all options available. Jane was in contact beforehand to tell me what information was needed and Sue was prepared for our meeting. I cannot praise Sue and Jane enough and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sue and her team.

I am extremely pleased with my recent dealings with your firm and will be back as and when I might be in need of legal representation in the future.
