It makes it easy for you to instruct us quickly and efficiently, see real-time case status on individual or all matters, access personally-tailored, comprehensive live and trend reporting, control costs and take preemptive action to prevent future issues.
What sets our Employment Service Hub apart is the specially designed triage system. Following your instruction, and using information you provide, the system applies a series of criteria to ensure your case is allocated to the appropriate legal expert, at the appropriate level, thereby ensuring cost efficiency and service excellence.
