Employment law advice from our HR consultants and solicitors is flexible and provided in a variety of ways.

Why would I need employment law advice?

As legislation and case law regularly change, keeping up to date with Employment Law can be challenging for employers. A significant amount of management time may be required to keep up-to-date, not only with the changes but with interpreting and assessing how it impacts the Company and its day-to-day operations.

Getting employment law wrong could be costly, not only from a financial viewpoint but also from a reputational / employee relations perspective.

Specialist employment law advice is often required, but this can be a very expensive commodity for small and medium-sized businesses to have as a permanent resource within the organisation.

Our employment law advisors are either qualified employment law solicitors or are CIPD accredited with considerable experience with the type of employment law advice being offered. We will provide you with all the documentation and letters needed for typical employment law queries, tailored where appropriate for specific issues. Employment law advice from Sentient also ensures that you are kept fully up to date with changes in the law and the implications that those changes may mean for your business.

We operate a continuous backup service and offer employment law advice 24/7, meaning you can sleep safe in the knowledge that the resolution of any employment law issue is being looked after by Sentient.
