You’re not generic, so neither is the support we provide
Our annual support contract is designed for organisations looking for comprehensive support with total flexibility at a fixed annual rate. Our support contracts cover health and safety, environmental management, and employment relations – or any combination of the three.
Our support may be comprehensive, but it’s certainly not generic.
Workplace Law support contracts are completely customised to meet your requirements and to fit in with your organisation’s ethos and way of working. We don’t impose our system on you; instead, we listen to your needs, agree performance objectives with you, and configure the support contract you need.
Every support contract is different for every client.
The contract is totally flexible to ensure you receive the support you want, the way you want it.
Flexible role: We can act as a virtual member of your in-house team, providing specialist expertise, or, for smaller and medium-size businesses without in-house capability, we can provide proactive advice, and act on your behalf, to help you discharge your legal duties.
Flexible delivery: While all support contracts include remote telephone and online assistance, you can choose to incorporate any number of days onsite to use as you wish: attendance at meetings, internal briefings, ongoing training… it’s up to you. All support contract clients receive online access to our award-winning subscription information service, established in 1999.
Flexible coverage: We cover the whole of the UK and can assist you regionally, whether you are a smaller organisation with one site, or a multi-national with hundreds of sites.
Flexible support: We’re there when you need us to be: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with unlimited access to our experienced consultants.
Flexible pricing: Pricing is based on your specific needs, so you don’t pay for what you don’t need. You can choose to pay annually, quarterly or monthly, safe in the knowledge that the costs are fixed for the duration of the contract period.
Flexible term: Contracts are available for 12, 36 or 60 month periods to suit your needs.
Workplace Law’s annual support contract is an account-managed service. We strive to deliver personal service, rather than adopting a ‘call centre’ approach. After all, you’re not generic – so neither is the support we provide.
Compliance with health and safety, HR and environmental legislation not only protects you from potential prosecutions but also demonstrates your management commitment and helps to improve employee morale.
Our personalised and tailored support will prevent confusion and save you time and administrative burdens.
As well as our competitive rates and 10% discount on additional services, helping you manage major organisational issues and reduce potential prosecutions will lead to a reduction in costs.
24 hour access to qualified consultants who provide prompt, pragmatic and expert advice, gives you the support you need to run your business.
Working with Workplace Law consultants will increase your own and your team’s knowledge, helping you deal with issues internally.

BNP Paribas Sustainability Estates Training Package
In 2012 Workplace Law was asked to develop and deliver a property management-focused sustainability training course for BNP Paribas Real Estate UK. This is a branch of BNP Paribas bank, which provides a number of property services including development, management and investment of property portfolios across the UK.
Workplace Law was appointed in the final quarter of 2012 to assist Shelter with the implementation of an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS). Shelter wished to reduce its environmental impact, secure funding and make operational cost savings.
"In 2009 Chaps Ltd recognised that it needed to improve its health and safety systems. We changed our Health and Safety consultants to Workplace Law in order to give us a fresh approach towards our management of health and safety and to gain specialist construction advice.
"By using their expertise and experience Simon and Maria have guided us into developing a health and safety system that has achieved CHAS accreditation and given our customers and principle contractor’s confidence in our management of health and safety. They have always been available to offer advice when needed and to provide independent site inspections and audits which are often required by our customers.
"Both Simon and Maria continue to support Chaps Ltd and have become an important, integral part of our Health and Safety Management System."
"When reviewing our need for Employment Law Support, a number of companies were shortlisted and Workplace Law were chosen due to the professionalism and advice they provided. Since engaging with them they have proved to be an excellent ‘sounding board’, guide and always at the end of an email or call to give practical, commercially sound advice. The support given for a ‘handed over’ tribunal was second to none and a positive outcome. I’d recommend Workplace Law to any business that was looking for comprehensive, professional and sound employment advice."
Caroline Lupton, Anson
"Having the Workplace Law Annual Support Contract in place provides our business with essential on-going day to day HR support in dealing with the wide range of personnel issues we face and in supporting our managers.
As well as being legally sound the advice is both pragmatic and commercially focussed with an excellent response rate provided to our enquiries. All the HR Consultants in the team are approachable, professional and extremely capable in helping us work through the many diverse challenges we face to ensure that people are treated lawfully and fairly.
The support ranges from day to day email and telephone advice to excellent consultancy service for more complex issues.
We hope to be able to continue with this partnership well into the future and would have no hesitation in recommending the HR support that Workplace Law are able to provide to other businesses."
Gill Baglin, Brewers
"We were very pleased with the way Workplace Law carried out our fire risk assessments in the College and hostels. They worked very closely with us throughout the process and produced a comprehensive set of risk assessments that met our requirements perfectly."
Bob Smith, Magdalene College
"The proactive stance taken by Workplace Law CDM-C’s on our projects has created a positive attitude to problem solving between the design, delivery and client teams. In many cases our clients are introduced to the CDM regulations for the first time as ‘lay clients’ and need a high degree of hand holding to stay with the spirit and letter of the law. This could lead to costly delays in the works. This has proved not to be the case and all our key objectives are met."
Mark Myers, The Harmsen Group
"On the whole I have attended many courses and undertaken a variety of qualifications over the years and this course has been by far the most valuable to me in terms of the knowledge, confidence and enhancement to my working capability and therefore fantastic value for money.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this course to anyone looking to develop their operational HR skills or for managers having to deal with front line people matters."
Jennifer Caswell, Great Yarmouth Port Company
"I really want to thank Workplace Law for the fantastic work you have done on our highly complex project. I know it was not easy to gather all the sensitive information from so many people.
Myself and the MD have read the report and are both delighted with the clear and easy to understand way the whole report is laid out. The recommendations were spot on and it certainly helped clarify the issues. I am sure we will be calling on your services again."
