We have teamed up with YESS (Your Employment Settlement Service) a Charity that provides employment law advice with a view to avoiding conflict at work and resolving disputes. Their slogan is “Life’s too Short to Litigate” as they never litigate. They have agreed to give our members up to 30 minutes free advice on employment issues arising out of pregnancy, maternity, shared parental leave and flexible working. This advice will be given over the phone, usually during working hours but they may be able to arrange a consultation in the evenings.

To apply, download the Application Form. You will need to attach to that a 2 page timeline setting out what advice you are seeking.

Our Administrator will then check that you are a member and pass the request to YESS. If you need advice over and above the 30 minutes they have very affordable rates. You can also look at their helpful factsheets on their website at
