As a Member of Business First Network you have access to our 24 hour employment advice line, bespoke employment documents for your business and legal protection. In this news article we share the experiences of some of our Members who have used our Business Law support.
Here's what they have to say ...
"I was a member of another business organisation for many years. However, in 6 weeks membership of Business First Network I have had more benefits than I ever had with the other organisation: using the rewards card I saved £30 in a restaurant, which I will be using as often as I can. I had advice over a customer who was slow to pay us, the legal people were extremely helpful and would have taken action immediately if I had wanted. I am very impressed with Business First Network."
Uel McCrudden, Inspirational Furnishings
"I used Business First Network primarily to get some legal advice on staff contracts for our 18 members of staff. After trying another organisation and not having any joy with them, Business First Network was then recommended to me. So I signed up straight away and logged onto their legal advice page and downloaded FREE contracts for our 18 members of staff. I was prompted to answer some questions on each staff member and finished up with 18 complete, professional contracts. This system was so easy to use and time effective, I am extremely happy with the result, so much so that I would recommend Business First Network to friends and business associates."
Rachel Smyth Director Ulster Property Sales
"As the owner of a busy café in a popular local holiday destination, I have to employ part-time and casual staff. I joined Business First Network to get advice and assistance with employment law and paperwork. It was great to find out that Business First Network are also able to assist me in complying with the new pensions regulations and that when my staging date for Auto Enrolment comes, I will have all the necessary recommendations and duties completed and will have a suitable pension scheme in place to meet the needs of my business."
Stephen Boyle, The Bay Café
"I have definitely had my money’s worth out of my Business First Network membership. I was making some changes to my business and had reason to speak to a solicitor who not only spoke to me for an hour, but also out of office hours. I needed the reassurance that I was handling a legal situation correctly and with the advice that I received it meant that I handled a difficult situation proactively and efficiently, with as little stress as possible."
Susannah Brady, Offload Business Resources
"My company places temporary staff in jobs in various roles in many different locations. Recently one of my temporary employees had a minor accident in her work placement. I contacted the DAS helpline for advice and was extremely happy with the speed and professionalism of the way this matter was dealt with, it was resolved quickly and efficiently to everyone’s satisfaction. I have already saved the cost of my Business First membership, I am very happy with the level of service I received and would not hesitate to use any of the services provided by Business First Network."
Brendon Cook, Kiwi Recruitment
"I had only joined Business First Network a matter of weeks when I found I had reason to use the legal helpline and document template. Unfortunately I needed to dismiss a member of staff and wanted to make sure I carried out the dismissal legally and in a professional manner. I also know that if the worst does happen I have the correct legal cover in place to help me. I am really happy with the support offered to me and am confident that I made the right decision in joining Business First Network and would recommend them to any of my business contacts."
Dominic Turnbull Natcon UK
"Even in the short time my business in Edinburgh has been a member of Business First Network, and although we have barely scratched the surface of the range of membership, I am already delighted with the DAS Business Law resource, particularly the facility to automatically produce employment agreements which in the past has been very challenging for us."
