At Forbes, we focus on dealing with our business clients' employment issues in a clear, straightforward manner. We aim to resolve any employment-related issues as and when they arise, in the most practical, cost-effective and favourable manner possible.
Our specialist employment solicitors can provide you with advice and assistance in relation to all aspects of employment law.
We now offer HR Complete a fixed-cost insurance-backed employment law protection scheme for employers.
In addition to the above, we deliver in-house training sessions; host regular employment seminars and legal updates; provide quarterly news bulletins; and publish articles relating to changes in the law. Our objective is to keep our clients informed and up-to-date with legal developments, in order that they may avoid any potential pitfalls and minimise the likelihood of costly claims being brought to the Employment Tribunal.
Forbes' HR Business Support can also provide businesses with advice, guidance and support in dealing with internal procedures and processes such as grievances, disciplinaries, appeals and practical HR issues.
Forbes has offices in Manchester, Leeds, Preston, Blackburn, Accrington and Chorley. For an initial consultation with an Employment Lawyer for your business, please call Forbes Solicitors on freephone 0800 689 0831 or contact us by email today.
