Modern slavery human trafficking statement
Bramhalls is a small, specialist employment law firm working mainly for employers in employment disputes. We aim to work with clients who hold the same values as ourselves in nurturing healthy employment relationships allowing the employer and the employee to grow and benefit mutually.
Our close-knit personnel work together in providing services of the highest standard and the services we offer come directly from work done within our office. The very limited work which we outsource is subject to the company Outsourcing Policy and the personnel we use for any work outsourced are analysed accordingly.
We aim to nurture and grow our client relationships over a period of time until their values become a part of our own. As our client partnerships grow, so too will our understanding of their commitment to the prevention of slavery and human trafficking. This allows us to ensure we are working with companies who share our morals and whose goals we understand fully.
All our personnel are committed, according to the ethos set out at Bramhalls, to provide quality service to all our clients. The Bramhalls Recruitment Policy ensures that the team retains its identity and our excellent service continues. At Bramhalls we have made a pledge to pay all employees the Living Wage according to the Living Wage Foundation to ensure the wellbeing of all members of staff. As part of our recruitment process we aim to provide any new recruits with the relevant training regarding working conditions and modern slavery and to make them aware of the challenges faced in the world of employment, an area in which we consider ourselves specialists.
With modern slavery and human trafficking in mind we aim to continually improve our outlook on how we tackle these important issues. As part of our statement we aim to monitor the updates regarding the new legislation and pledge to update our personnel training wherever necessary so we can combat modern slavery and human trafficking.
As specialist employment lawyers, we are all aware of our legal and moral obligations regarding modern slavery and human trafficking. This awareness will be renewed and all employees are urged to be vigilant regarding the risks, in our dealings with clients, as well as contractors.
Phil Bramhall is the most competent advisor on employment law issues that I have encountered in over 20 years in the industry. Real pragmatism and a proven ability to meet the needs of the most demanding of clients combines to produce an overall service offering that is second to none.

It is an absolute pleasure working with the team at Bramhalls. They don't overcomplicate matters or try to tie you up in lots of legal jargon. We have worked with the team for over 10 years now and they know our business and culture really well, which helps them to advise based on the realities of the operating environment. Whenever we need some advice or a second opinion, they are always on hand to guide us and their calm and consistent approach helps us to deal with matters quickly and efficiently.

Phil and the team at Bramhalls have provided employment law advice to me and the HR team at the college for over 12 years. They are great and fun to work with. They understand our organisation, are knowledgeable about the Education Sector and they're always quick to grasp the matter at hand. They provide pragmatic advice to enable us to move forward in a sensible way and are always quick to respond.

Rehan is a lovely guy who is very knowledgeable and considerate. My experience on every occasion over the past 6 years has been excellent. If I experience a problem where I need advice for a situation, it doesn't matter who answers the phone, I know I will get the best advice in a way that I understand the thought process of how the recommendations have been considered. They are a lovely friendly team, who I will continue to recommend on a daily basis to fellow HR professionals who need employment law advice.
