HR Online "HOL" is designed to be a thorough introduction to all the aspects of Employment law and HR issues that you are likely to meet on a day to day basis.  It should alert you to potential problem areas and keep you up to date with developments.  BOSS Federation HR Advisors are always on hand to explain and expand on the information in HOL.

Each topic is divided into 3 sections:

  • Principal Guidance which will give you an overview of the topic, including flowcharts and "At A Glance" diagrams
  • Secondary Guidance which will deal with specific areas that need more explanation
  • Working Documents which are drafts for you to use and adapt for your business.  They include letters, policies, forms and checklists as appropriate

In addition the BOSS Federation Ready Reckoner will ensure that all the important but easy to forget facts and figures are at your fingertips, and the Redundancy Calculator will assist if you are having to consider a cost-cutting or restructuring exercise

Are you searching for a document that isn't in HOL? Is there an area of concern to you which isn't represented? Let us know and we will do our best to include it in the next update.

The HR advisers at the BOSS Federation explained the process and the law regarding our particular HR enquiry.  They supported this with some solid practical advice that led to a satisfactory conclusion.

I found the advice offered by Theresa to be of the highest standard and it filled me with confidence that what we were doing was correct.  Without the help of Theresa we would not have followed the correct procedure.  I will definitely be using Theresa and the HR advice team again.

Excellent support.

Kiran Mistry, Wm Jones Clifton
Judith is an asset to your organistion.  She was highly professional and calm and helped deliver a project which has every risk of going awry.  She inspires confidence in all and held our hand during a very sensitive time of this company's life - for that my team and I are very appreciative.  Long may she continue to serve in her role as I know in times when HR support is required, there is someone highly reliable to call upon.

Ray Lesnik, The Finishing Co
The level of service we get from the BOSS Federation is excellent.  They have the ability to make you look at issues from a different angle - hence avoiding problems as opposed to fighting you way out of the.  This is essential when there are so many other issues in the business world today.

Fay Willis, Cloister Press
Linda covered every angle making everything easy and clear to understand.  She was thorough, detailed and friendly.  Couldn't have asked for a better service, it was excellent.

John Drew, Kingfisher Print & Design Ltd
Stacey was a tremendous support with this sensitive issue.  And employee had been diagnosed with MND.  As his physical ability deteriorated, Stacey's advice helped me to manage him until he resigned from the company and left on good terms.

My experience with BOSS Federation HR has been excellent - advice both practical and clear in addition to playing out various scenario's and outcomes

It was very reassuring to talk to someone familiar with a business like ours, rather than someone from a general non print background.

Really helpful, advice was instant.  Very good.
