“Lindsay's services have been invaluable to me over the last 7 years. She provides clear, practical, easy to understand advice. She is always easy to get hold of and has been a huge support. She is also very reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to recommend her to other businesses”
“TM have supported our company for several years. The support, advice and availability at any time give myself and the board comfort that we have the wellbeing of our staff and protection of the company first and foremost, a huge asset to our business. In addition with training, seminars and bulletins we are provided with up to date law changes in advance of them being introduced to allow our business to adapt as required”
“Lunch time sessions – I find these a great benefit, appreciating the on point concise delivery within an intimate setting where there is also the benefit of hearing the views of others and the events that crop up in their offices. Handbook and related documents – Very fast service which did not present itself as an opportunity to pick holes in everything and turn it into a larger exercise! Compromises – Lindsay made herself available quickly, as required. Clear, concise and documents were not challenged. Discrimination training to company – Lindsay held the audience and importance of messages seems to have been received”
“Since October 2013, this company has been guided through the ever changing maze of Jersey Employment Laws by T M Legal and specifically Lindsay Edwards-Thatcher. Lindsay has kept us up-to-date with the requirements on our Statement of Employment Terms, Staff Handbook, HR procedures and how to deal with all staff on a daily basis. Her seminars are vital to keep us up to date, for the changes in the Jersey Employment Law, to ensure that we comply as a modern growing business”
“Lindsay has been providing regular updates as the new Discrimination Laws in Jersey have been introduced. She has also periodically submitted updates and developing case law via e mail to those who attend her seminars. I can confirm that Lindsay’s lectures/seminars are extremely informative and provide up to date and sound advice on current issues relating to Employment and Discrimination Law in Jersey. The seminars are given in a relaxed and informal arena which allows those attending to provide their own input and to ask questions and raise issues. Lindsay’s advices and responses to any such issues are practically and commercially based and are direct and to the point. Lindsay’s seminars would be extremely useful for employers owning their own business and employing a workforce, human resource managers and to lawyers or others seeking to update themselves in areas of Employment and Discrimination Law”
