Keeping on the Right Side

HR Smart, has launched a website offering free employment advice to help business owners keep within the law. Online HR Advisor (www.online-hr-advisor.co.uk) is claimed to help businesses keep abreast of employment issues by ensuring they follow the correct procedures and processes.

They can register for free and immediately gain access to ‘clear and comprehensive’ flowcharts which detail the necessary stages required to manage common HR issues.

The site currently hosts 12 flowcharts, which deal with the most common HR questions. These include how to manage recruitment, maternity, paternity, parental leave, changes to contractual terms and right to work in the UK checks. If users require further help, a range of documents, guidance notes, tools, letters and forms can be purchased individually from Online HR Advisor when needed.

“We’ve specifically designed the service to provide simple, easy-to-use advice to business owners grappling with day-to-day employment issues,” explained Heidi Rush, HR Smart. “Many businesses don’t have their own qualified HR professional, so this is particularly useful for small to medium enterprises (SMEs).”
