Wake Smith launches new business HR support package

Wake Smith Solicitors has launched its new employment law and HR support package to businesses across all sectors.

The new retainer service from the Sheffield law firm offers a monthly help and support subscription service providing practical, common sense advice to guide businesses through any HR issues they face.

WorkSense allows businesses to access highly experienced employment solicitors offering assistance and advice when they need it, accurately budget for HR support services with a cost-effective monthly fee and keep up-to-date with the latest employment law legislation to ensure full compliance.

Companies signing up also benefit from discounts on other HR and employment law services, and access other business and individual legal services from Wake Smith.

Holly Dobson, director and employment law solicitor at Wake Smith in Sheffield, said: “WorkSense means you can take advantage of our expertise for a fixed monthly fee. Our market experience and commercial intelligence also means that we have in-depth experience of a range of HR problems and solutions.”

“Businesses can tap into our specialist HR capability and knowledge base, make sure they are implementing best HR practice, reduce their exposure to risk, offer peace of mind and leave more time to run and grow their own business.”

“Wake Smith will support you and your management team in dealing with your company’s specific HR requirements offering peace of mind that your business is compliant with HR legislation.”

WorkSense will be handled by Dobson, who has more than 30 years of experience in HR and employment matters, and employment law solicitor Briony McDermott, who has worked in the sector for 10 years, advising private and commercial clients on all aspects of employment law, both contentious and non-contentious.

Wake Smith’s WorkSense fixed monthly HR retainer fee includes document reviews of contracts, staff handbooks and policies; unlimited telephone and email advice during normal business hours; advice, assistance and second opinions on day to day HR issues, including poor performance and absence; access to regular HR updating seminars and HR bulletins; and a 20% discount on other HR and employment services falling outside of the retainer.

The firm’s employment team already provides strategic advice and guidance on a range of employment law issues and HR matters for businesses, including contracts of employment; director’s service agreements; business transfers and TUPE; unfair dismissal; discrimination; redundancy and re-structuring; settlement agreements, and disciplinary and grievance procedures.
