What’s new in legal
Legal solutions for your people issues
You need to handle day-to-day core business execution, from tackling pay compliance to managing your global talent pool. Then there are the unexpected critical situations that arise, where you might require access to legal support at short notice or have to handle a major strategic workforce change. And, of course, you need a focus on what the future holds. Our legal solutions support you with all your people and workforce issues.
Business and workforce transformation
Your business transformation could involve TUPE transfers, changing workforce terms and conditions or planning and implementing collective redundancies (and exploring alternative options). We provide strategic legal and practical advice as well as employee engagement and communications support.
The pandemic has put a focus on flexible working and employee wellbeing. We provide a range of solutions to help. For example, we can help you manage furloughed staff, make claims under the government’s Job Retention Scheme and carry out any necessary audits. We can also support ‘working from anywhere’ risk analysis.
Our UK-bound immigration option analysis helps you to plan ahead when looking to establish business or residence in the UK. We also offer a Brexit Immigration Online (BIO) solution for European nationals working for you in the UK. This provides simple tailored access to the EU Settlement Scheme, should they wish to obtain settled or pre-settled status.
Management equity incentive plans
Equity-based incentives can still represent some of the most efficient and attractive future reward structures available. We can advise you on how you can establish, adjust or close out management equity incentive plans. We work with KPMG’s Tax team to offer a comprehensive legal and tax solution.
Pay gap reporting
We provide a multidisciplinary team of legal, payroll, reward, and data specialists. That enables you to comply with mandatory pay gap reporting and develop an effective strategy. We also provide reporting solutions based on other factors such as ethnicity, socio-economic background, sexual orientation or disability.
Global talent management
As you move talent around the globe to get skills where they’re needed, we can help with business travel risk assessments and obtaining work permits. To ensure your workforce is lawful, we can support you with immigration and right to work audits.
Access to temporary legal talent
When you’re facing a critical situation, you don’t want to be short of legal support. ‘Flex for Legal’ gives you access to screened and qualified legal talent, without any IR35 risk. You can augment your current workforce when needed to deal with peaks in demand, gaps in resource or coverage for any reason for a fixed period.
People and pay compliance
Are you confident that you are meeting reporting and compliance obligations for the National Minimum Wage, holiday pay, equal pay, employment status reviews and off-payroll working? We can equip you with the right advice, data and analysis solutions to meet your obligations.
Right to work
You have a legal obligation to check whether your people have the legal right to work in the UK. Our right to work app helps you satisfy that obligation and gives you peace of mind – even if you are working remotely.
