Legal services for Recruitment Agencies
Supporting recruitment agencies
With many end clients depending on their agency for advice and guidance around due diligence and compliance, it can be difficult to provide assurances without compromising your own position on risk. We can help provide security and transparency with expert legal and compliance advice on key areas such as IR35, alternative workforce solutions and assistance on a wide range on contractual matters. We work with you to ensure that all compliance risks are mitigated.
Stay ahead of the game and provide your clients with the broadest range of talent available to suit today’s business challenges.
Are you looking to engage with US clients to source perm/temp workers who have the right to work in the US? We’ve got you covered. Our legal advisors, including our US/UK dual qualified lawyer, have experience in offering advice to recruiters who are looking for new opportunities and considering plans for international growth.
When considering overseas engagements, particularly in the US, it is important to understand the difference in the employment culture between the UK and the US. Whilst termination “at will” is commonplace in the US, it is also a highly litigious culture. To mitigate this risk, we can help to ensure that your terms and conditions with US clients are robust and protect you from US specific risks such as misclassification.Discover more
