Richard Evans, director, and our lead consultant has spent the last 30 years working in the area of employment law. He has worked in the public sector for the Employment Tribunal Service and as a conciliator with ACAS. In the private sector, he has worked as an employment law consultant working both for an HR consultancy, offering retained services and on a self-employed basis. In recent years whilst working for several charities, he has represented claimants engaged in Employment Tribunal proceedings.
It was during this time, he realised that many smaller employers who had been unsuccessful at an Employment Tribunal, had not deliberately acted unlawfully but had not fully understood their legal obligations and the procedures they should have followed. This was largely due to the cost of obtaining HR and employment law advice.
Richard holds a master’s degree in employment law and has successfully completed the CILEX higher professional diploma in law and amongst other qualifications has been successful in obtaining a CIPD Certificate in Training Practice and an NOCN – Certificate in Workplace Mediation.
