However, there are inherent dangers in seeking the cheapest option. There is usually a reason you are given a low estimate of costs and it may be that the person concerned lacks the experience that you require. Many firms of solicitors with employment specialists now offer HR and employment protection schemes that were previously the territory of non legal firms. The advantage of selecting a firm of solicitors who operate such a scheme is not only their levels of expertise but that they will be fully insured with a well established complaints procedure if things go wrong. Unlike most of the non legal companies, you should also be able to find a solicitor's employment law protection scheme that only lasts for one year, which allows you to evaluate the service over that period before you decide whether to renew the service or not.
Risk Management Service
A good employment law advisor will first of all carry out a free risk management audit, which is basically a health check of your employment practices. A specialist employment solicitor will visit you to look at your personnel records, review procedures, uncover any weaknesses, and assess what needs to be done to improve any problem areas.
