Services for Employers

Employers and Businesses

Employment laws can be very complicated and change frequently. The consequences of getting it wrong or not being up-to-date can be very expensive. Don’t let it happen to you. The value of prevention is better than the cost of the cure.

Our approach is to be part of your team, to understand your business and its issues and together we can help you achieve the best working relationships and environment.

Roberta has extensive experience of all aspects of advising and acting for clients at all stages of the employment cycle.
