The NFRN offers FREE legal advice as part of its membership package.
At some stage in your retailing career you could find yourself facing a legal problem relating to test purchasing, employment legislation, trading standards, health and safety or HM Revenue & Customs.
Not only could this be very stressful, it could be expensive too as getting the professional legal help you require can be extremely costly.
