How can Capsticks help?

Our HR specialists support businesses reduce sickness absence, conduct investigations and can support you through change management programmes. Our legal experts can deal with all your employment law queries, including reviewing employment contracts, policies and procedures, the application of TUPE on business sales and acquisitions. We can also provide advice on disciplinary and redundancy procedures.
