Where would you find the money if you needed legal help?
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.
That’s why we offer FREE legal advice as part of the Federation membership package.
As a member you are entitled to not only over-the-phone advice from fully trained legal experts but also a consultation with the solicitor of your choice completely free. Should matters require it you can also get up to £50,000 (subject to conditions) of legal cost cover in the event of a court case.
Manned by legal professionals, the helpline can answer questions on:
|Commercial Issues||Employment Issues|
|Trading Standards||Contracts of Employment|
|Health & Safety||Disciplinary Action|

Earlier this year the NFRN boosted the legal help it provides with the launch of NFRN Legal Plus, a comprehensive package of support to ensure that members can keep on top of complex legislation changes.
In partnership with our friends at CybHR, top quality advice is available at your fingertips with online access to legal documents, factsheets and a staff handbook that all detail the rules, policies and procedures governing employer responsibilities to help members implement good practice or adopt due diligence with regard to employment law, health and safety legislation and company law.
Accessing NFRN Legal Plus is only available through the members’ section of this website.
