Employment law is a complex and evolving area. A legal team is called on to provide advice and documentation throughout a person’s employment, from drawing up an initial contract to managing redundancies or contract terminations. As a business grows, so does the workload.
Our consultants provide support with both specific employment law queries and a legal team’s regular workload. When you need to draw up contracts or negotiate employment terms, Obelisk Support has a lawyer with the knowledge and experience to help.
By working with Obelisk, you won’t add to your own HR or employment law burden; Obelisk Support manages all checks and onboarding processes. When you need support, we have employment solicitors with the experience you need on a basis that suits your projects.
