Our employment specialists are dedicated to ensuring that our employer clients get the advice they need, when they need it. Whether it’s general guidance on every day HR issues or a difficult situation with an employee that has to be resolved urgently; we consider the commercial, reputational and morale issues at stake. We provide HR legal assistance to employers across all sectors – finance, retail, media, manufacturing, recruitment, education and charities, to name a few.

Some of our clients value the peace of mind that comes from having us on hand throughout the year and subscribe to our HR Legal Helpline. Others prefer to instruct us as and when they need advice, often referring more complex or urgent problems to Seddons that their insurance helplines cannot handle.

Our team not only provides legal advice at your premises, but can undertake grievance and disciplinary investigations as well as Workplace Mediation services onsite.
