Where to find some free stuff...

Here’s a surprise. There are some good sources of free advice on HR matters and I don’t believe in selling people things that they can get without having to pay for them. That’s part of being a trusted advisor.

 

www.acas.co.uk provides information, advice, training, conciliation and other services for employers and employees to help prevent or resolve workplace problems.

 

www.equalityhumanrights.com/en provides advice and guidance on equality law and avoiding discrimination at work.

 

www.ico.org.uk helps organisations understand their obligations when it comes to data protection and freedom of information, and how to comply, including protecting personal information, and providing access to information.
