Law At Work, the Channel Islands’ employment relations specialists, marked its 10th anniversary of advising Channel Island businesses in the fields of employment rights, human resources, and health and safety, by holding a series of briefings and training on the forthcoming Discrimination (Jersey) Law 2013.
Established in 2004, Law At Work came under Channel Island ownership in 2010 following a management buyout and is today led by Kelly Flageul, Managing Director, Heidi Gibaut, Executive Director, Sharon Peacock, Technical Director and Richard Plaster, Director who between them have over 75 years of combined legal and human resources experience.
Ten years on and Law At Work’s experienced HR professionals and health and safety experts, supported by their non-practising legal team, continue to deliver training, documentation and support on employee relations matters. The service is tailored to the specific requirements of a business from day-to-day HR management to the roll out of more strategic programmes, as well as guiding clients through the tribunal process. The health and safety team deliver practical training, site and office safety inspections and accident investigation services, assisting clients to meet their legal obligations and provide a safe workplace for their customers and employees.
Kelly Flageul, Managing Director of Law At Work, said: “We’re celebrating our 10th anniversary at a time when significant anti-discrimination legislation is about to be introduced in Jersey and businesses are only too aware of needing to be prepared for it. This has highlighted the value of the service that we offer to businesses, large and small, who are seeking support and guidance to navigate their way through new laws.
“Over the last 10 years the Law At Work service has evolved to meet the changing needs of businesses, it is no longer just about making sure HR policies and employee handbooks are up to date; with new employment laws there is a great deal more for businesses to consider and we’re there to support them. We have also developed our service lines to serve local businesses with support in regard to health and safety laws, an area which is often neglected at great cost.
“We would like to thank our clients for their ongoing support and we are now seeking to take the business forward and continue supporting Channel Island businesses for the next decade, and beyond.”
