Why work with Employment Law Solutions?

“We’ve been working with ELS for the last four years. The main benefit to us as a company in using ELS is the confidence that it’s given us in moving forward with our employment decisions and they really do understand industry sector specifics such as our Ofsted compliance, EYFS, safeguarding, the ratios that we have to work to and they really did factor that into the employment solutions that they offered to us.

We very much consider them now part of our team having them on board has freed us up to focus on other areas of the business and we let them look after our HR issues.”
