Kate explained: “I’m really pleased to be working with the Chamber on the delivery of legal advice services to members. The legal helpline allows members to contact Eaton Smith through a dedicated number and speak to one of our team. I deal with the employment law queries, and have helped members with all manner of issues including redundancy procedures, dealing with long term absences, disciplining staff, and discussing contracts of employment. I believe that the opportunity to speak to a solicitor gives the member peace of mind that they are meeting their legal obligations, and it also ensures that they avoid or reduce the risks of Employment Tribunal claims. If a member has an employment law question and hasn’t used the legal helpline before, I would be happy to hear from them and guide them.”
