Funded Legal Support Package Available



We have launched a business legal support initiative, partnering with Better Business for All (BBfA), to offer continued support to Hertfordshire businesses through the COVID-19 crisis, and boost their resilience.

This will be useful for business managers who have legal questions about COVID-19 and their employees, such as:

•    Working safely and attending the workplace,
•    Vaccinations and testing,
•    Sick pay and self- isolation,
•    Furlough,
•    Mental Health and Wellbeing.

Businesses with fewer than 50 employees can receive free legal advice through membership to either Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce or the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), dependent on their number of employees. Eligible businesses that make successful applications will receive a years’ free access to membership support which covers:

•    24/7 access to a legal advice line including HR advice, health and safety, commercial contracts and tax advice,
•    Legal documents, templates and policies available online,
•    And many more membership benefits.

Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce provides support to companies of all shapes and sizes, through a range of membership benefits and networking opportunities.

The Federation of Small Businesses has a mission to help smaller businesses achieve their ambitions by offering members a wide range of vital business services.

The benefits to your business include:

•    Provides confidence for employers to communicate effectively with their employees on the various areas of law relating to COVID-19.
