2. Evaluation – SWOT

2.1. Trends in your market

 Many companies now willing to spend money on updating contracts of employment and company handbooks.  Corporate support greatly increasing, due to referrals from Simon Wallwork, Nicky Collins and Katharine Mellor. Due to increase further as the corporate team expands.  Introduction of tribunal fees in April 2013 and ACAS Early Conciliation Procedure in 2014 significantly reduced the number of tribunal claims and reduced the work in this area. However, tribunal fees were abolished in 2017 and we are delighted that tribunal work has increased over the last couple of years.

 GDPR has produced additional work over the last 12 months.
