ELLIS Whittam, a fixed fee employment law, HR and health and safety specialist of Aldford, has been appointed by the National Pharmacy Association (NPA) to provide employment law and HR support to its 4,000 members, together owning 12,500 pharmacies, across the UK.
The appointment of Ellis Whittam will give NPA members access to employment law and HR advice and guidance 24 hours a day, seven days a week via telephone, email or online. The service, which is seen as a key NPA membership benefit, means members will receive guidance, interpretation and advice on the law in important areas such as absence and sickness, contracts of employment, holiday entitlement, disciplinary and grievance procedure, as well as flexible working.
The Ellis Whittam team is made up of lawyers and HR experts who have a wealth of experience of dealing with organisations of all types and sizes. The advice offered will be totally confidential, practical and easy to follow and members will be allocated their own highly qualified legal expert, who will understand and get to know their pharmacy business and its needs.
