We are pleased to announce a new string to our Employment Law bow, with the appointment of Natasha Young as External Training and HR Manager. 

Natasha has 20 years experience of working in HR across a range of sectors and is also a Fellow of the CIPD. In her new role with the Hampshire law firm, Natasha will be working with local employers in two main areas, namely providing training and in-house HR support.

Managing employees can be extremely time consuming and for a business without a dedicated HR role, it can fall away to other priorities and pressures. Many SMEs do not have the luxury of an in house HR Manager and conducting meetings with staff can be somewhat daunting for managers and business owners. Natasha is able to bring her knowledge and expertise to provide employers with the necessary support during recruitment, appraisals, performance management and carrying out disciplinary and grievance proceedings.

“Employment law is an ever changing field, and it is vital that employers stay up to date to ensure they don’t end up on the wrong side of an Employment Tribunal,” explains Natasha. “In some situations, knowing the legalities behind an employee relations decision is half the story if that advice is not then implemented in the business. Working closely alongside the excellent Solicitors in our Employment Law team means that we can offer a seamless link from providing the legal advice to carrying out the necessary procedures that stem from that advice.”

As well as HR support, Natasha can also provide essential training to managers or HR representatives in a business on a variety of topics ranging from managing mental health in the workplace, recruiting apprentices, employment status, managing diversity and inclusion and sickness absence.  

Sarah Whitemore, Partner in the Employment Law team, commented on Natasha’s appointment, “Having Natasha join us means we are now able to offer our clients a substantial offering regarding their employment law and HR needs. Employees are the foundation of any business and poor employment or HR practices can lead to low morale, declining productivity and in the worst case scenario, a costly Tribunal claim. We understand that not every business will have the resource to invest in their employee relations, and we hope with this growth in our team that we can help employers overcome those hurdles.”
