Employer’s legal service

Working in partnership with law firm HBJ Gateley we have arranged a free legal advice service providing access to expert help on all HR and employment issues.

We want all the employers we work with, regardless of size, to have the knowledge and confidence to implement ‘best practice’ policies that will help them recruit and retain more women staff, as well as benefitting their workforces as a whole.

The employment team at HBJ Gateley will provide support and advice to any employer working in the fields of science, technology, engineering and construction. They can advise in relation to all general HR and employment queries, and can offer particular expertise on a range of areas including:

  • Family friendly and flexible working
  • Maternity, paternity and adoption leave
  • Shared parental leave, and other time off for dependents
  • Part-time working and flexible working requests
  • Taking positive action to improve diversity in the workplace

HBJ Gateley offers a free 20 minute phone call during which they can discuss the issue and provide initial advice. If you require further assistance, they can discuss their fee arrangements with you. For more information on their services please click here.

If you are an employer and would like to speak to one of their employment law specialists, please complete the enquiry form giving contact details and a brief description of the issue you would like to discuss. One of their team will call you back within one working day.
