The Consultancy does not provide an outsourced HR function and it neither can nor will make decisions on a client’s behalf.
No email from the company constitutes legal advice, and the company is not responsible for actions taken by the client or any other party. Email information is for general review and guidance only, and specific legal advice should be taken in individual cases. Any general employment news or information / education email that the company may choose to send from time to time is sent in good faith, but should not be considered advice and is a steer for general review. No responsibility can be taken for the content of external links which are provided in good faith for review, but they are not endorsed. Due to the sometimes rapid change in laws and guidelines the company can under no circumstances take responsibility for out of date or inaccurate content. It is a condition of acceptance of update/information/news emails that this is agreed, and that no financial liability is due. If anyone wishes to no longer receive general updates please reply to the email, stating this.
Legal advice should be taken in every case before taking or not taking action.
